Malnourished Models? – The New York Times

By Will Reid on February 11th, 2008

00012m_5I just found this article from the New York Times on the trend for skinny male models. In the article, Guy Trebay credits Hedi Slimane with popularising the waif-like silhouette for the modern man. I personally don’t think they’re too far off the mark as although glossy, silver-coated and decadently tailored, we only have to look at the pictures of the model who’s backside could barely fit into a pair of Dior Homme jeans to know that all is not what it seems when it comes to the traditional ‘beefcake’ image of male models.

So after my recent post on male-to-female trend transition, could we be inheriting another aspect of the fashion universe? I really hope not- there is already enough pressure on my waistline! See after the jump for a rather excruciating example of Hedi’s ‘beauty is pain’ denim.

Women think men find size zero sexy

By Isabelle on March 29th, 2007

A survey conducted for New Woman magazine indicated that 58% women thought that men found size zero attractive. Without wanting to get into the whole "I like a bit of meat of my woman" debate, unless you’re 5 foot nothing size zero is gross. I’m quite surprised that women actually think that heterosexual males prefer their potential mates to be on the brink of starvation. I’m not going to kid myself, women define the parameters for female attractiveness so men rarely come into it but surely it’s kind of obvious to other women a man is going to prefer a woman who can hold an intelligent conversation without passing out from hunger? Pretty people make crap conversationalists anyway, they always wait for you to ask questions about their pretty, fabulous lives!
