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!
