and some therapy – stat.
So, there I was, starting to do my weekly Eddie Furlong google when I came across this. Basically, a New York Times fashion writer put up one picture of the GORGEOUS WANT TO BE HER WANT TO DECORATE MY WALLS WITH HER BODY Christina Hendricks and it was distorted. They later replaced the photo with the original. Here they both are.
Now personally, I think both look pretty stunning. The one on the left (your left, not the computer’s) is clearly a bit stretched. The writer, Cathy Horyn (who neglects to include a picture), claims it was an error and since replaced it. So whatever, scandal! and, lying bitch!
What really bothers me is the straight cattiness of the whole thing. Look, I get that fashion is a part of the whole awards season. I love it. It’s the only part I watch and I’ve totally been known to let a “wtf? Is she wearing a dead animal snuggie?” fly.
Still, I resist commenting on the actresses actual bodies. You want to know why? Because they all rock. I repeat, they all rock. These women are hot. From Meryl Streep, to Mo’Nique, to the bombshell that is Christina Hendricks.
The other thing that got me was addressing the size issue and then putting a picture up. Really writer? You couldn’t put up a picture of the other thousand women you thought looked good? You had to pick the girl you were calling fat? Nice.
So let’s just assume that in some place other than the New York Times office people actually thought that Christian Hendricks was too fat and don’t “put a big girl in a big dress” applied. I would still call “shenagins” on that. Absolutely put big girls in big dresses. Own it! Big dresses are made to be sashayed and it’s soooo not about your size that pulls it off. It’s about your attitude.
It’s about putting on your ruffles, your DD bra, your sweet ass red lipstick and your stomping boots and strutting down the red carpet/office corridor/home entryway and own. ning. it. Bam! Like that. Like this.
I don’t want to get into body image issues today. Today I want you to bounce your boobs and blow a kiss.
I love you bitches.
