In case you missed it, Kate Upton is the ultimate pin – up, model and whatnot for every fashion magazine out there. Thing is, you see, that beyond Kate’s natural beauty, she happened to drop at the exact right time when everyone keeps ripping apart the size 0 fashion controversy by taking steps into the normal size direction. (this time in Vogue Italia November 2012, as photographed by Steven Meisel)
All that sounds great, except Kate isn’t exactly your average normal – sized girl. She comes with special curves in all the right places (doesn’t she look like Anna Nicole Smith’s long lost twin?). So I really have to wonder what’s worse: keeping the size 0 everyone is already used to seeing or pushing in a ‘normal figure’ only with exceptional physical features?
Why do women have to feel frustrated every single time they pick up a fashion magazine? I’m sure if they wanted their silhouette expectations to meet the Playboy levels of excellence, women would’ve done something to make that work by now… Instead, the number of breast DD enhancement surgeries keeps going down. And a “Seductive” cover title across a loud Playboy – ish cover certainly won’t help. Boy, do I miss Lara’s controversial Vogue Paris spreads?! At least they were trying to keep her fashion allegiance straight.
