Hooray! Skinny Models Booted out of Top Fashion Show and Replaced by Victoria’s Secret Angels!

Posted Thu, February 25, 2010 2:37pm EDT

Breaking News!

Just heard that the big wigs at the Prada design house in Milan fired many off the toothpick-thin models that were originally booked for their fall 2010 fashion show, which is being held at this moment in Milan on Feb. 25th.

Shockingly, for the skinny-obsessed fashion world, they were replaced by more voluptuous Victoria’s Secret models, who actually have at least a little meat on their bones.

My source is telling me that the big revolutionary moment occurred last night during fittings for the highly regarded trend-setting fashion collection.

She reports that a casting director suddenly threw up his hands, said “F— it!” and ordered that sexy Victoria’s Secret Angel models, Miranda Kerr (girlfriend of Orlando Bloom), Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes and Isabeli Fontana airlifted in for today’s 1 pm EST show.

Word has it that the revolutionary decision came after the uproar over the pin-thin models at New York Fashion Week, and the criticism over the skinnies on the runway at Prada in past seasons.

As someone who was the editor-in-chief of fashion magazines Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Marie Claire, I can assure you that this emergency move could have earth-shatteringly positive consequences. In other words, we can expect that after uber-trend setter Prada has made this revolutionary move to curvier girls, other design houses will fall quickly in line. It’s great news for models — they can EAT again — and for real women with real shapes everywhere.

Furthermore, last night design company Elena Miro actually used regular size models — the kind that fashionistas call plus-size, and the rest of us describe as “normal.”

So take a look at our pictures of Prada’s skinnies last season versus their new curvy girls, and tell me which do you like better?

Hey Ruben wake up and smell the coffee, these women are in no way shape or form fitness models. They are skinny but for the most part they do not have athletic bodies, they have skinny legs, not well toned shaped legs,and a flat stomach does not equal working out at the gym everyday, I don’t see six pack abs or well toned arms on any of them. They are just skinny. Out of all the skinny models very few of them have athletic bodies or “fitness model bodies”.

Skinny models are very unnatural, and severly unhealthy. However, those Angel models are what catergorize as fitness models. They live healthy lifestlyles that incorporate; eating healthy foods in smaller frequent portions and exercise regularly. I feel that the people who say these women’s body’s are plastic are just in denial. Drop the muffin, pick up an apple, and dumbbell and get to work. It’s obtainable but you have to work at it. I work at a gym and I’ve seen women who come in looking beautiful just the way they are, but would just like to look and feel a little better, and in time they look great with a toner, leaner looking body and less body fat. So lets cut the critisism of women who truely do work hard to obtain tight bodies. And for this talk about their boobs being done, lets grow up b to c range is normal. So w

Implants, really? So it’s just sooooo impossible for a woman to have B-C cup boobs stuffed into a push-up bra? Let me tell you that those VS bras can lift a girl’s boobs like nobody’s business.

most vs models have implants. it doesn’t have anything to do with b-c cups, it has to do with b-c cups and stick legs. they almost never go together. but, you’re right. sometimes they do.

Embrace it! Models do have an attainable body type. Looking good is not a by-product of super hero talents. It means stop eating stupids!

Both models are thin it’s just the Victoria Secret models have implants. Don’t fool yourselves, for most Americans the Victoria models still have unattainable bodies. That’s what makes models so special. Its something we could never be ourselves, something to wish for if ever so emptily. If you have such a problem with the weight of the models don’t watch. Stop bashing them, you make yourself look insecure. But honestly who wants to see everyday people on the runway? It’s art and art is being different not trying to make everyone happy. Suck it up. Clothes just hang better on thinner people.

I don’t know if “Hooray” is quite in order, but I guess it’s a step in the right direction. From emaciated (translucent) skin and bones to (some) muscle tone, a tan and breasts … teenage girls the world-round are no doubt celebrating at this very moment (and setting up their tanning bed appointments and breast augmentation consults). Thank you Prada.

Miranda Kerr is also very skinny!!! I think Doutzen on the other hand looks beautiful and healthy too, good example indeed. But as long as the ‘fashion world’ thinks a size 36 is a plus size model there is something wrong!

I can’t believe that women are agreeing and embracing this. Big deal, models that do not represent a realistic body type are being replaced by other models that do not represent a realistic body type. Not only that, the too thin models who were told they had to maintain that image are now out of work. It’s so ridiculous that such emphasis is put on a womens’ body…or lack there of. Prada still sucks for being unrealistic in their expectations of a women.

I agree the prada models are way too skinny, and are at unhealthy levels.

But the victoria secrets models (at least the one in the article above) aren’t unrealistic bodies. They’re very healthy bodies, like you would expect to see in an athlete, or someone whose line of work is being fit and attractive.

But people would rather cry about unrealistic standards than put in some effort into their health. You don’t see young boys complaining that they’re not all NFL players. If you don’t put in your daily work to being fit, you won’t be fit.

I love this comment! Those Victoria’s Secret Angels’ bodies are completely obtainable- you just gotta work for it. I was comfortable at a size 6, but I wanted more definition and some ABS lol, so I worked hard. I got my beach body and I’m down to a size 4.

My little sister (age 17) was a size 12, but she wanted to be smaller and more fit so she started controlling her portions when eating and walking more– a few months later and she’s down to a size 8.

While shrinking from a size 10 to a size 2 might be unrealistic (bone and muscle structure start coming into play once you hit a certain weight) a size 4-6 definitely isn’t. If you want to look like those VS models, you have to be willing to change your lifestyle and become healthier.

I could not agree more. I don’t think Victoria Secret models aren’t that unrealistic. Sure they’ve got boobs, so do many women, and sure they’re tan, but last time I checked too many girls all ready go tanning. This is what athletes can/do look like. I’m a long distance runner (something that anyone can become), I’m 5′ 9”, 125lbs, and my boobs are hovering right between B and C. Am I a goddess? Not by a long shot, but I’m healthy and I’m thin and I get to eat.

Stick thin models were never that beautiful, regardless of what the fashion industry tried to make us believe, they just looked like sticks. VS models ARE beautiful. They have natural looking curves, something our culture needs to learn to embrace.

Please let’s all pretend that Victoria Secrets types are 100% organic. It’s not just enough to not eat now. You have to do a bit of that, have a schedule which allows for long work outs, get the plastic Barbie boobies, maybe the rear end too and the fake tan. Then of course someone has to do your hair and make up, then air brush your latest photos. But hey, it’s realistically attainable. It’s O.K. when you have a realistic grip on life. But a lot of goofy men don’t and teenage girls can be a bit, well, teenagers. Good luck to them.

It doesn’t take a long workout to loose weight and gain muscle. An hour at MOST per day– every other day if your can’t do that. It just takes time and dedication.

Everyone’s body is different so some girls might not have the boobs or the but, but they can still be fit and look good. It doesn’t take plastic surgery to obtain a healthy body.

I have acne scars and stretch marks (actually most women have stretch marks to whatever), but I’m proud of my body and I don’t look at theirs with envy. If you’ve ever watched a show like The Biggest Loser and saw those transformations you wouldn’t be calling it impossible.

They’re on a tv show dedicated to losing weight, sure, but it can be done at home as well given a little time and effort. Again, nothing unrealistic about obtaining a fit, healthy body.

Size 12 is kind of pushing it, I think. Americans are getting fatter every year and while I don’t think a size 12 is necessarily obese, I do not want my daughter to grow up thinking that being big is all well, good and healthy; there can be a lot of health risks involved with being overweight.

I’m all for girls being comfortable with their body, but obesity is becoming an epidemic. I don’t make fun of overweight people or avoid them, but I don’t accept it either. 1/3 children are obese nowadays and that’s just not right (don’t even get me started on childhood diabetes caused by obesity).

I say good riddance to the stickly size 0 models, but I think the ideal body image should be a size 4-8. Just enough to show off our curves, but not so much that it becomes a health risk.

AW. Makeup just takes practice. I still think the best look is a swipe of subtle eyeshadow across the lid (gold for me since it blends well with my skin tone), a little bit of eyeliner (focusing on the outer edges to make the eyes wider), and a touch of mascara for definition. Foundation if you need it. 5 minute face!

Just wondering how tall you are? I am 5’8″, grew up an athlete, if I am below about 140 I start to look unwell. And for me that’s a size 10-12 depending on brand.

I’m 5’5″, I guess it depends on the body type. 140lbs looks like blubber on me. I have a friend who wears about a size 10 and she also starts to look very unwell when she hits a certain weight. She has a very broad skeletal structure so any less than 135 or so and we start telling her to go eat a hamburger lol.

Still, the average American woman is about 5’3″ and a size 12 usually runs about 130-150lbs depending on how tall you are and how your weight is distributed. 140lbs might not look good on someone 5’1″ but if you’re 5’8″ it probably looks completely different.

I don’t usually base my opinion on weight because muscles weigh more than fat. If you’re an athlete, then you’re a fit size 12 and not an unhealthy size 12. Huge difference there.

Um, I am a size 12 and 5’10″ and I am right on target for a healthy weight for my height/frame. I think a woman looks good with curves. My husband loves my body.. he likes my hips and boobs and does not want to be a size 4 or 8. You’re setting a poor example telling everyone they should be waif thin.

What about all the poor girls that are thin constantly being criticized by fat-asses, no way around it you are unhealthy, unattractive, and a burden to everyone. We are the fattest nation, mostly because we are a nation of excuses.
