Women 'prefer skinny models' (Online Reporter, 20 Sep 2006, The Sun (UK))

WOMEN prefer thin models to those with fuller figures, new research claimed today.
Researchers handed 470 women pictures of models of various sizes.
Two-thirds gave a positive reaction towards the skinnier ones.
Only one in three reacted positively when faced with a larger model.
Those who preferred the skinnier models said they were "more elegant, interesting, likeable and pleasant".

Just take a look at the photos that go with the article. Clearly, the fashion industry is in a brutal race to the bottom. The feedback loop is simple, homosexuals wish the models were young boys and most women covet (secretly or not) their approval.

Mick Jagger's 20-year-old daughter has already established herself as one of the hottest properties in the modelling business.
Having won a much-coveted contract as the face of Lancome cosmetics, the svelte brunette is unquestionably at the top of her game. And with a fee of £20,000 per shoot, she is also earning rather more than most women her age.

Yikes!!! You just knew that was not going to turn out well with Mick contributing 50% of the DNA.

Oh I don't know. Steve Tyler is Liv Tyler's father, after all, and look how she turned out.

...but now she is happily dating John Lennon's son Sean.

The mind boggles. The body shudders.

Unless the picture is wildly unflattering, Liz Jagger is not a pretty girl.

Well, she's about 5-10 or so, so I assume she's got some decent legs for a model, and I suppose it could have been worse -- given dad's facial features, she could have ended up looking like this.

You lost me on the pronoun. Who's approval are women supposed to be seeking - homosexuals, models or boys?

Brandon: As Chris points out, who's not on your list?

That's not a flattering picture, but she does look alot like her mom, Jerry Hall, who is also good-looking in a somewhat unusual way. Here's a better picture. She doesn't get a "yikes!" from me....
