Gisele’s body has been the envy of every woman for years but her new sexy photo shoot has me worried: Is Hollywood sending a horrible body-image message to young women?
Gisele Bundchen, you’re skin and bones! The 30-year-old supermodel is V Magazine‘s Spring cover girl and she should have kept her clothes on. I’m all about embracing different body types but there comes a point where someone is just too skinny, and that’s the case right here. I was one of the first to praise Gisele on her post-baby bod after giving birth to baby Benjamin with husband Tom Brady. But she’s taking her strict workout regiment way too far!
Gisele posed for photographer Hedi Slimane – and don’t get me wrong, I see the art here. But come on! When she’s leaning over you can see every vertebrae in her spine! Gisele looked gorgeous when she was pregnant. In fact, her voluptuous figure looked better than in these new pics. I’ve thought Gisele looked unbelievable on every one of her Vogue covers, in all of her Dolce & Gabbana fragrance ads and especially on her V Magazine Spring 2008 cover!
But my issue isn’t whether Gisele is one of — if not THE — most beautiful woman in the world. I simply find these photos depicting an incredibly thin woman a bit frightening. And I believe it sends a strong, negative message to women everywhere, that boney somehow equals beauty.
Between Megan Fox‘s Emporio Armani ad and now this, the message is loud and clear: If you want to look good, lose some weight.
Tell me, HollywoodLifers, do you agree?
