Default Re: "For Fear Of . . . "

Ankesh,

Thanks for adding.

The question is NOT whether a designer can make a Real Girl (whatever That means) sexy isn't the question. It's how fashion works. You need to know THAT before you can know Why lean models are used.

Clothes sells not because it looks good on, but because it looks good hanging on the rack. When it looks good on the hanger on the rack, it is picked out, tried on and bought.

Thus, so the clothes looks good when shown in real life, the designers Need models upon which the clothes will hang like it does on the rack. As such, they need lean models from a profitability point of view.

Movies sales aren't about what's real or not - 007 vs Bourne. It's about the Story and existing Fan Base, if any.

Bourne = a mystery underdog that everyone is trying to kill but he seems like a nice guy.

Bond = a skilled secret agent that we know will use lots of gadgets and will win in the end.

Bond's failing is more to do with no Q and a different M and Money Penny, together with weak story lines. Plus, we are now in a generation where the gadgets do Not impress us, and are even available to the general public.
