Mean Betty on Curvy vs. Skinny Models

Can it be true? The Italian fashion world has turned its back on stick-thin catwalkers in favor of curvier models.

Mean Betty is shocked, absolutely stunned, kittens, by the news out of Milano that has fashionistas worldwide practically falling over in their Jimmy Choos. According to the skinny-as-a toothpick models who were originally slated to strut the runway at Thursday’s Prada show were suddenly replaced.

And were their places taken by even younger and bonier specimens (like those underweight, underage chicklets who were on display during the New York shows)?

No, no, no! According to reports, during last-minute fittings, the Prada casting director threw up his arms and said “F— it,” which in this case could be translated from the Italian as “Forget it!” He fired the size 00’s on the spot, and ordered a bevy of Victoria Secret beauties to be flown in pronto, pronto.

They included Miranda Kerr (girlfriend of Orlando Bloom)

    LOVE IT! Finally, they’re starting to get it! Curves ftw!

    I am still not seeing how these models look curvy. They still look stick thin.

    YAYAY! Prada casting director whoever you are, I love you!

    First, hooray for the Prada casting director! The models who replaced the stick figures are much prettier and at least look like they eat. Most runway and CK models look like their diet consists of cigarettes, coke and wine. But Mean Betty, the more “normal-size” girls are NOT a 4 or a 6. I think the average American woman is a 12 or 14 and not all of those women are “fat” either. Of course, in the fashion world, anyone over a size 4 is considered “fat,” so I guess I can see where you’re coming from. It seems they would do better selling clothes that are more suited for the average American woman and not models and celebs.

    I think this is a really cool story, and definitely a departure, but Victoria’s Secret models are still really unrealistic – Betty mentioned implants and she’s right! The number of women who are naturally that thin with breasts like these girls have is NOT HIGH. Everything is relative, and yes this is an improvement from 00, but still a long way from “normal.” Why can’t designers design for the size 00s, the 4s, 6s, 16s and even the 26s so that we can ALL look our best, whatever that means for each body type?

    Since I do not know anyone who is a size 0 I have to say that the replacement models were much more realistic. They may not be the size of the average american woman but atleast they are not all boney and malnourished. They actually look healthy and femanine. Kudos to Prada for atleast taking a step in the right direction.

    Oooh. I see. So by “curvy” what we really mean girls with boobs. Not girls with actual hips or thighs. Interesting…
