Bah.

I Am In A Mood. Therefore, in an attempt to cheer myself up, I shall inflict the following upon y'all.


Before anyone says anything, my utter love for this isn't because of the music.  Just.  Sayin'.

To make this vague politically relevant, one of the reasons I love this is because these are actual women with actual curves.  There's not one of them you look at and think "for the love of God have a sammich before you die". 

I can somewhat comprehend the super stick thin look for runway models.  They are, literally, walking clothes hangers.  Curves can ruin the line of the look.  Of course, that rather begs the question for whom the designers are designing.  But the super stick thin Rachel Zoe look totally baffles me.  It's not attractive.  It's not hot.  It brings up some very disturbing questions about the elimination of actual feminine characteristics from the modern concept of beauty.  It's part and parcel of the super botox'd, fish lipped face that is supposed to be so attractive.  It's not. 

I think it's great that Meryl Streep was even given a role in which she gets to play a sexy woman despite (and it is despite) the fact that she's 60.  I think it's utter crap that Vanity Fair chose to airbrush the hell out of her face for the cover while running a story about omg she's 60 and she's hot!  If she's do freaking hot, then don't do that to her face. 

You know what one of the hottest pics of the last few years was?  Dame Helen Mirren getting snapped by a papparazzi on the beach in a pink bikini.  Holy hell, I would sell body parts from all y'all to look like that now.  (Pic below the fold).  She's 63 in that pic. That is a woman.  Catherine Zeta Jones' thighs (and everything else) in Chicago should be registered as a lethal weapon.

Women have curves.  Women have hips and breasts and thighs.  That should be celebrated, not lamented.  Size 0 isn't an aspiration, it's a disease (exception those whose bodies are naturally built for that). 

Wow.  That got away from me.  But hey, there's hotassery so that makes up for it.
