Lizzie Miller: Groundbreaker - Or Glitch In The Matrix?

So Glamour made a healthy model (Lizzie Miller) a centerpiece of its last edition by showing her nude, un-airbrushed, showing a small belly and womanly curves. Most readers gave it praise for finally showing a normal, healthy woman - with reason. She's damn beautiful - and I say that with not usually liking blondes in particular.

But are we witnessing the rebirth of the actual Hot Woman (i.e. not one that is shaped like a 9-year-old boy), or is this just one eye candy before we go back to constantly seeing cocaine-fueled double-digit-weighing anorexic boobless walking sacks of bone?

My guess: I'm sure that despite the overwhelmingly positive reaction to this, it'll soon blow over and we'll have super-skinny/unhealthy models again for a long time, if only because Society's brains have been fed it so long it forgot anything better exists.

It's sad, but the way the world has been going this past decade, the spiral just seems intent on heading downwards until... well, we'll know when we get there, and we're not going to like it. As a species. Urgh.

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

They're all gorgeous.

thanks for the link, those are nice indeed... almost makes a guy want to settle down... (!)

but I don't see Lizzie Millers as a 'plus-size model' though (although you could argue the same for a few of those on that site as well), when she stands, she's as fit as anyone else, just not skinny-as-cancer... it's just when she sits that you can catch some of her humanity...
