Gisele Bundchen slams skinny fashion models

A few weeks ago, the following news was reported at many outlets (e.g., here):

Gisele Bundchen has slammed super-skinny models who don't eat to stay slim.

The stunning supermodel warned her colleagues shouldn't jeopardize their health by starving to keep their looks.

The Brazilian beauty told TV show 'Entertainment Tonight': "It's important to remember that if you don't put gas in your car, it's going to stop. Similarly, if I don't put food in my body, I'm going to die. I eat whatever there is to eat because I don't want to faint on the runway."


The aesthetics of the buttocks in the white female

Whereas this site mainly focuses on masculinity-femininity as it pertains to beauty in women, it is also interested in promoting overall high aesthetic standards among female models and beauty pageant contestants.  This post addresses some anthropological data on the proportions of a beautiful backside in white women, pertaining to both masculinity-femininity and other aspects; data on non-white women were not available at the time of this posting. The data shown below can be used to describe with some precision why the backsides of high-fashion models are typically seen as pathetic by most people, with the notable exception of gay fashion designers.

Estradiol and face shape in women

Estradiol and progesterone are hormones related to fecundity and fertility in women. Fecundity refers to the probability of conception per act of intercourse and fertility refers to the probability of successfully completing pregnancy.

A recently published study assessed the relationship between estradiol levels, progesterone levels and facial masculinity-femininity in 59 young white women not on contraceptives (mean age = 20.4 years, S.D. = 1.5 years, range = 18-24 years). Estradiol and progesterone levels were assessed from their metabolites in urine samples provided by each of the women once per week for 4-6 weeks, and the women were photographed each time they visited the research lab. The women provided information about their menstrual cycle from diary data to enable the researchers to use hormone levels at the same stage of the menstrual cycle of the participants.


Gay fashion designers

Although I have cited “The Advocate,” a major U.S. publication catering to homosexuals, on the gay domination of the fashion business, some people read so superficially that they would accuse me of using nothing other than my own assurance and pictures of the faces and physiques of fashion models to argue that the fashion business is dominated by gays, and this in spite of my quoting the following statement published in the Advocate:

To observe that gay men and lesbians dominate the fashion business may seem about as controversial as saying that Russians rule Moscow.
