    Default Cindy Crawford urges women to change fashion

    CINDY CRAWFORD is urging women to stop buying magazines which feature super-skinny models - because it is up to the public to change body image stereotypes.
    Crawford recently admitted she wouldn't have become a successful supermodel if she had started out in 2009, because her body is too curvy for today's catwalks.
    The 43 year old is convinced fashion magazines promote an unhealthy lifestyle to young girls and she's hoping consumers will make an effort to avoid these products in a bid to send a message to industry bosses.
    She says, "We as the consumers, we as the women, have the power. If you don't like something, don't buy it. Don't buy the magazine if you don't like what it says. If you don't like the image a brand is putting out, don't buy it.
    "What I really don't agree with is people who complain about it but still support it. You're giving your power away. If people don't want skinny models, stop buying the magazine with the skinny model, and believe me those magazines will change fast. It's business."

    Can we add...stop buying clothing from the designers who only use super-skinny runway models too. The designers and magazines feed off of each other..sorry about the bad pun.

    It's less about the clothes (hardly anyone can afford them) and more about the other crap the designers try to sell to us regular folks. Such as perfume, shoes, bags, etc.
    Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!

    You're absolutely right. Boycott the designer crap.

    She has a point, it's as logical and simple as 1+1=2, yet people insist on buying/idealizing that crap. THAT is illogical.

    Good for Cindy.

    I don't buy the magazines anymore because the fashion spreads are such a turnoff. All the fun of imagining yourself wearing the clothes is gone. They don't look like women!

    Elongated 10 year old boy bodies with plastic boobs are so freakish I can't look past them to see the clothes. It's like hey, let's see what the aliens are wearing! I'd rather not.

    Something has to change when Cindy Crawford can be considered "big" by modern models..

    The world's gone crazy and i'm sure some fashion people just hate women and want us to disappear.

    I agree with Cindy. Here is a current magazine cover of Australian model Sarah O'Hare which is untouched:



    I won't be purchasing any designer products (I used to buy Ralph Lauren perfumes) where the company demands stick insects instead of real women.
