    I mean, you guys do realize that these girls are in their teens and from eastern europe and are chosen because they are genetic freaks right?

    I mean this literally. These girls are just very young, come from a culture with extreme genetics. The reason the "supermodels" of teh nineties were "curvier" is because they were in their twenties and were American and British and French.

    Their bone structure and ridiculous height and extreme weight is why they are models in teh first place...they don't start starving in Eastern Europe to be models, I assure you.

    Just my two cents.

    And remember, these poor girls you are picking on are probably sixteen and insecure as hell

    ^ I think most of that is probably true in many cases. But the fashion industry still does all women a disservice by promoting the look above all others, imo.

    You may think they're being "picked on" but it's nothing against them personally. It's more of an expression of disgust toward the industry & its current standards.

    But like twitchy, I'd like to throw in a "huh?" about the "extreme genetics" comment. I'm kind of interested in the physical characteristics of people in different regions. What exactly are you saying about eastern europeans?

    A lot of the eastern europeans models tend to have a similiar look. Very tall, thin and high cheekbones. They arent many curvy models now.

    Model scouts tend to visit eastern europe to find the next top model.

    I agree with Lobes about the whole teeny tiny body / round face thing, I've thought that for a while.

    Yeah, I know that eastern europeans tend to have a certain facial look about them, just like other regions do, but I'm not getting how any of that would be "extreme genetics."

    Perhaps by extreme genetics they mean "absolutely average genes" like mine average height, average weight, average blue eyes

    No. Um, I am going to do my best to try to not be insulting.....but, if you haven't noticed...people from different parts of the world look different. Perhaps that has escaped you. You do not see many central American supermodels because, well, their genes prescribe them to be shorter and have more curves.

    Same with, say, Native Alaskans. Have you seen many native alaskan supermodels....or maybe Cambodian....have you seen many Cambodian supermodels???? No. That is because due to their climate, their climate and genes, they are smaller and not exactly model material.

    Because Eastern European, Russian women have genetic predispositions to be extremely tall, or thin, they are saught out....due to their extreme genes...to be models. And yes, you are insulting the girls by calling them disgustiong etc. ....Call Karl Lagerfeld disgusting for hiring them.........


    And Thank you Arie Skop for not being a bandwagon hater.


    I'm very sorry, but I thought this was a discussion, clearly it is a venue to just rip people new assholes.

    Let me just go on the record as saying that your "best" sucks ass.

    I think that *you* are insulting these girls by saying that they have "extreme genetics," as if they're part of some freak parade.

    What everybody here has a problem with is the starvation that these girls apparently have to undergo in order to model. Maybe, just maybe, you are correct in saying that eastern European women tend to have taller, more slender physiques, but please don't try to pass off bullshit as fact, and try to sell us on the notion that these women naturally look like they're Holocaust victims.

    I assure you the young ones do. I ASSURE you. Thats just it, everyone wants to hate so bad on these girls, but these are lanky ass teenagers!

    Look, I am Lithuanian. I could eat three big macs and I weighed 98 pounds when I was 17 and was 5'8. I HATED it! Every fat ass cow in Missouri (where I grew up) was HORRIBLE to me! I didn't even get boobs until I was 17. Like I said....I can honestly say that 95% of these girls are plucked forom obscurity at a young age somewhere in Eastern Europe to be models. Rip on the people that hire them, not them.
