What is Wrong With This Picture (iii)?

Absolutely nothing is wrong with this picture from the September issue of Glamour magazine. Well that's what I say. Strangely enough, the comments have come not because the model is, albeit tastefully, naked. Rather it is the small, the o so small roll of fat on her stomach that has caused a furore. "Hurrah for showing a real woman" was the main sentiment of the myriad e-mails that flooded the magazine's website. The model herself, one Lizzie Miller, was less gung ho about it. She "admitted that seeing her small roll of flesh in the magazine made her cringe. "I'm just like every girl or person with insecurities," the 20-year-old said. "You zone in on the (worst) part. Let's just say you're your own worst critic." "

Look here for more or just google Ms. Miller

  1. I've always been a fan of plus-size models! There's a great site with many images of plus-size models here:

    They're all gorgeous.

    The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.

  3. False nudity! She's wearing a thong! LOL!

    All kidding aside, she is simply, stunningly, beautiful. I think deep down, everyone has a particle of self-criticism that goes beyond the rest of the world's perception of us whenever we're naked; in whatever way (singing, writing, acting, playing footy, anything that puts us "out-there"). Maybe it's good, maybe it's bad, but it continually spurs us to keep on keeping on.
