An unlikely pic of Keira Knightley

I have mentioned before in this blog that I’m partial to images of female cleavage. But I don’t really know what to make of this photo alleged to be Keira K:

The headshot looks like the usually skeletal Ms. K, but I don’t know about that cleavage image. Doesn’t look like the real Keira, or does it?

Here is Ms. K in another shot from the same web source:

My goodness how to reconcile the two images? Is it the one and only Ms. K in both photos? IMHO it can’t be!

The female form and Kim Kardashian

LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 09:  Actress Kim Ka...

I have posted here about cleavage, a Brit-tease, Keira Knightley’s skeletal look and an image of a lusty looking lady on a Panama City beach.

I guess it was just a matter of time and fortuitous circumstance before I would post about Kim Kardashian. Here is the link and triggered this post!

I have said here before that I have a lot of time for the female form in its natural state. To my mind neither Keira K nor Kim K present the female form in a natural state, and maybe there is no such thing. But “give me a break Kim!”! What the hell is that get up in the link above. It’s great to express yourself but does it have to be so over the top?

Why do female celebrities seem to reach for the “grotesque” in the name of fad, fashion, showier celebrity? Isn’t just the natural female form enough?

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.

7/30

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