Here We Go

When you walk down the street and see models just hanging on the steps like like a gang of fashion thugs then fashion week must be close.

    Often models change shoes right before going into a casting. it is hard to run all over town in heels I guess

    I believe the four of them cumulatively take up the same amount of space I would sitting solo on that stoop. Lovely girls, but will this trend toward the super-skinny ever end?

    Oh yes, I love NY too ! Too skinny? I would suggest to get a Zagat for each model…..if they can resist that…

    Have fashion models always been skinny? I think so.. Is it so the the clothes are on a uniformed physic. less attention on the (curvy) body and more on the clothes? Who knows.
    Maybe visually it is the equivalent to the horse jockey having to weigh 86 lbs in order to better promote the horse.

    Once again we have all the skinny haters! you wouldn’t comment on someone being obese so don’t comment on someone being thin … models have to be thin & most have the thin gene irrespective of what they eat … i guess it’s all about jealousy …

    Female models have been super skinny for years now, it’s really not anything special.

    What is weird is how thin male models have become. I was browsing the runway shows from fall 06 and spring 07 and was struck by how tiny the guys are starting to look. Thin but super muscular was in a couple of years ago, but now they’re all waifish.

    Bring back the masculinity!

    I’m a guy and even I find them a tad skinny.

    Not sure how effective models are if the man/woman in the street cannot imagine themselves looking good in the clothing they parade.

    FFS anon 3.43pm – Nobody is ‘jealous’ or ‘skinny haters’, people are simply commenting on the blindingly obvious. People like you should come up with a different argument, the jealousy schtick is getting very old and tired.

    Sure they’re hot…but can they walk? Just kidding…this Prince Street posse is a Soho staple.

    I’ll take one of each…

    They don’t look extremly thin to me. Only naturally thin, given their age and genes I guess. Models are thin because clothes simply fit better on a lean physiche.

    I think fashion models are too skinny. It’s not that I’m jealous. Excessive thinness (oftentimes the result of anorexia, which you can often tell by people’s faces: anorexics often have a “hungry” or “famished” look, haunted eyes, and pale lips… having been thru a similar bout myself, I can recognise it in others) offends my ocular senses. But lingerie and bathing suit models… wow! They look a million times better than fashion models. They look the way women should look. (They look the way I aspire to look now that I’ve grown to womanhood.)

    I don’t mind models being skinny but I _would_ like to see more variety in the body types you photograph. I love the blog and enjoy the comments but would like to see some really stylish chunky folks especially when they don’t seem embarassed about being larger! So, keep your wonderful artist’s eye open for some fabulous fatties!

    Je suis triste. I love NY. I lived in NY for 7 years. Now I miss it so much. I miss it so much I want to cry. I am sorry. Why am I so sensitive? It reminds me of Soho.
