What I mean by not liking the modeling world is Simply that I dislike the fact that all the models have to be Amazonian women. The average woman (last time I checked) is about 5'4". Fashion shows today seem to be more about art than practicality, and it seems most models are around 5'10''. Now, trust me, I am Very into arty, irrational things. You might say I am the very definition of arty, ridiculous nonsense, however, it's hard for me to look at models and celebrities and not compare. Personally, I feel better about myself when I think I look "nice", and I admit there have been times in my not so distant past when I did silly things like search for the measurements and/or weight of anybody from Grace Kelly to Ingrid Bergman to Keira Knightley and so on and so on and so on.
Models are so skinny and giraffe-like, and I can't help wishing that the fashion world valued diversity in models. I understand that my saying that is somewhat preposterous, since the reason they're the same size is so they can throw them down the catwalk efficiently, etc, etc, etc. My most recent search? The model, Lily Cole. She's an English, 5'10"readheaded model with a round face. I saw some photos and I really liked the fact that her body has curves. Not all women are naturally curvy, of course, but it's so rare to see shape in a model. The funny thing I found was that she and I have nearly the same weight and measurements...except I weigh more now that all I do is stress about school and bake chocolate cakes that I eat by myself. Oh, and I'm really not trying to brag about this. The girl is five or six inches taller than I am, therefore, whether or not I'm the officially "healthy" one between the two of us, next to her, I would look like a bloated dwarf woman. Still, my point is: I like that she looks more human than a lot of the other models.
