Celebrities and Diet

Skinny stars are no longer all the rage in Hollywood. Beyonce, Tyra Banks, Jennifer and Hudson have all recently been embraced for their curvaceous bodies and are even gracing the covers of fashion bibles, like Vogue.

In USA Today, there is a great article that illustrates the recent change in attitude towards women who fall short of the size 2.
Says Reed Krakoff, Coach creative director and vice president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America: "We've gone through a period where there has been a lot of focus on women who are too thin. There was a trend toward the very thin, and now there's a trend toward more shapely. People's perception of what's beautiful and acceptable on the red carpet is evolving, and it's great that girls can see different kinds of role models with different body types."

The article also praises America Ferrera, Scarlett Johansson, Liv Tyler and Kate Winslett who earn praise for their fuller figures than the Nicole Richies. These women earn praise from magazines for defying the Hollywood pressure to be stick thin, while Kate Bosworth and Mary Kate Olson are always being questioned with eating disorders.

Jennifer Garner, Eva Mendez and Mandy Moore are also cited in the article for being positive influences in the Industry. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Maybe we are so focused on It girls, and trying to create problems for celebrities who seem to have perfect lives that we obsess about their weight to create the illusion of imperfection. After reading this article, I realized there are a lot of famous actresses who defy the size 0 and 2 image, but why did I ever forget? Here is the link, check it out. What do you think about the article?
