Hello, dear TEENSIZERS, I have been away and busy and (I confess), I have neglected my dear blog. But day in and day out there has been an issue lingering in my mind that I really have to address here.
The very talented and recognized German designer Karl Lagerfeld recently reacted to Brigitte's (Germany's most popular women's magazine) announcement last week that it will, in the future, use "ordinary, realistic" women rather than professional models in its photo shoots, saying that the decision was "absurd" and driven by overweight women who did not like to be reminded of their weight issues.
He continue by saying that "These are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly," Lagerfeld said in an interview with Focus magazine and finished up saying that "no one wants to see round women".
I am usually really cool with these kind of stupid comments, but I cannot help but feel offended, mostly because I don't want this to be the mentality passed on to my daughter.
This is not an issue against really thin women, they are as beautiful as we, TEENSIZERS, are specially if that is their natural body type. But it cannot be denied that many of the ultra thin models follow unhealthy habits to stay at a size 0, and even still, their pictures are photoshoped and thinnned down!
I am sure that Mr. Lagerfeld is trying to erase his past as a TEENSIZER himself, and that's why, for fun and revenge, I am posting this picture! ;-)
