Chloe Says: Gisele Bundchen's Boney Figure On V Magazine — She's Scary Skinny!

Posted Tue, March 1, 2011 10:15am EDT

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?

You should NOT be able to see some of your spine or ribs – that is not an indication of being healthy.

um look at her ab MUSCLES and thigh muscles! she is not too thin at all!!!! She is a Supermodel! and she has always been long and lean (her signature look) and its prompted millions of teen girls all over the world to want to become models and take care of themselves. I will admit she is thinner after baby but only to the size she was when she was younger (1999-2004) only in 2005-2008 we saw her looking extra thick (for her) and in the fashion world they were even beginning to call her fat. She is damned if she does, damned if she doesn’t. I think these are STUNNING photos of a healthy,vibrant woman. You wanna see too thin? go look up high fashion models! Natasha Poly,Daria Werbowy,Chanel Iman,etc…

When a thin girl leans and hunches over, her spine shows! get over it! Its not like Gisele is standing upright and her backbone shows. Until then if you lean over and no bone is visible, i’d say it would probably be beneficial for you to lose a few. Besides tall thin girls have bigger more prominent bones, doing something as hunching over will only showcase it more.

Gisele looks great here.She is no thinner than she has ever been, her body looks slim but good. Pick on someone who is truly scary,like Angelina.

I get that there are women with weight issues. but some women are naturally thin. Every woman does not have to fit in a certain mode. Some are as I said naturally skinny. I am getting sick of women who are thin being accused of having an eating disorder. Wake up. Women come in all shapes and sizes.

Having your spine stick out is not healthy. Period. I can’t wait for her to lecture me on how she thinks everyone elses spine should stick out too because it’s “sexy”.

I think she is one of the best models, but she’s not a role model.

She is very fit… Look at those triceps! She does KUNG FU. You can’t help but be lean when you practice martial arts, but you have to have MUSCLES in order to do those forms.

You know who is too thin? LeAnn Rhimes and her stupid bobble-headed @$$.

I’ve determined that Hollywoodlife is full of fat old ladies. Everytime someone is thin, they say its unhealthy. Come on ladies. Put down your bag of cheetos and accept that some people are just thin. They aren’t sick. They aren’t anorexic, they are just thin and beautiful.
