Difficult to understand Schiffer nude photo

Yes Claudia Schiffer has done lots of photo shoots for Vogue et al. But this shot, snipped from a HuffPo gallery of Schiffer images doesn’t make much sense to me on any level, porn, novelty, sacrilege or what have you!

Reading the article posted on HuffPo with that image, one of 17 posted, it seems that it’s just a matter of showing a Supermodel in many different ways.

It’s difficult to think of a more thin explanation. After all the lady, as photographed, is pregnant and the image is probably offensive to many.

Oh well, art, or glamor, or whatever, seems to be very much in the eye of the beholder, unless the image simply offends you!

For me the image is nonsensical because it gives a ridiculous view of an otherwise beautiful woman

The scrawny small tit look is more out than in

In my humble opinion Rachel McAdams has that bony scrawny look of Kiera Knightley. Rachel also looks knock-kneed, or is it just legs that look unfleshy.

I get a kick out of comparing the way the scrawny look contrasts with the busty Kim Kardashian look and what both images say about fashion trends and their sources.

I guess that sternum exposure is the other way of showing bony cleavage!

Problematic images of female beauty

I have never felt very affected by the latest fashion in the female form.

But I must say that I did not like the bony creature that Keira Knightley presents in “Atonement”. In fact, each of the women in that film seem deliberately unattractive, almost wraith like. How could any man want to lust for any of these anemic looking creatures?

They may look fine I guess, if you like tall, somewhat scrawny and leggy figures, but sexy? How so?

Update after the Oscars: Oscar night features lots of conventionally lovely and some sexy women. However during the TV program, I didn’t see much evidence of the scrawny look, except for Tilte Swinton, who is exceptional in more than one way but not really a female sex symbol.


Here’s the latest on her figure from Huffington Post, which she prefers in its natural form, thank you very much!
