Do you personally think the models of today look better than in the past?
If the model in your picture represents the average model, then most definitely not. She looks like a walking corpse, its absolutely disgusting the way they have to punish their bodies just to be clothes horses. Surely, using mannequins would be a better and safer alternative.
I think most models of today look unusual, natural and pretty although that model in your picture looks like a starving creature looking for a victim. She has a pretty face and a wick expression.
No; but the industry has changed. One of the biggest misconceptions about models is the belief that they are supposed to be beautiful. Models serve one purpose: To sell clothing. The reason runway models are so thin is because no one is supposed to be looking at the model. The runway model is supposed to basically be a walking coathanger that shows onlookers what an outfit looks like on the rack. It is true that a certain type of face helps as well, but essentially the body is a functional thing made to show a particular fit of clothing or to show clothing hanging on a rack. Women who want to get into modeling in order to show off their bodies are thinking of pornography or acting; not fashion marketing.
Models used to be bigger way back when, but onlookers were looking at the bodies in a positive, sexual way and not the clothes. They changed the models so be exactly what you said.. walking coathanger. No sex appeal. Nicely said.
wow good way of thinking about it, i never thought of it this way..
the one in the picture is nasty, damn. i think it's about the same as it was 20 years ago. before that, say in the 70's, they weren't quite so thin so they looked a lot better.
If that is the "Average" Model, then that is a major no. I prefer women of the past and plus size models. I prefer plus size women anyway. They are just more beautiful to me. If I walked up to the woman in this picture I would try to shove food down her throat. She really needs to eat something. They might as well have lab skeletons up there trying on the outfits.Guess I am just weird for not liking the models of today.
no they are too skinny, boney...
they look sick some do have really pretty faces.
