MODELS ARE JUST LIKE THE REST OF US

Every month, I grab the latest Vogue and Bazaar, and thumb through the spate of new fashion ads. There are ads that take my breath away, ads that intrigue me, and ads that leave me wondering... "what in the samhill is she doing in that picture?" Or "gee. That looks uncomfortable." It's true that fashion is other-worldly, i.e. not our world, so maybe we should just accept that models dwell in a rarified style garden, being clothed by famous design fairies, feeding on champagne dew drops, and prancing around in odd poses. But not me. I wanted to investigate, and see if models really live normal lives like we do. And they do! Well, not completely normal. But take a peek...

Saw a Prada ad recently where models apparently forgot their pants (and underwear)...and were forced to use handbags to protect their privacy.

These things happen, I suppose.

Averill. LOL - that made me laugh so hard. I found another ad similar to that, but refrained from posting it - I've got to keep things "family friendly"!

Very cute, love the images and you are right I don't think they are normal human beings at all. No one should have legs that long, they must be a super-race of people. Great post, Kathysue

but does Madonna really do the dishes-maybe Madge does them & really being the cynic about that industry and the detriment it causes to young women's mind body (oh yes and old gals too) should we add-eat?, smoke?, suck thumbs?
