I thought the same thing - why'd she pick Elle MacPherson and not Heidi Klum or Giselle or somebody?lol...she's really dating herself here. Elle MacPherson was big in the 80s. Even Elle MacPherson is no Elle MacPherson anymore.You know, I'm kind of tired of the articles using various celebrities and supermodels as reference points. People keep saying she's not "really" beautiful because she doesn't look like Adriana Lima.... or Angelina Jolie... I think she herself said she's "no Elle MacPherson." I don't like the implication that if she ACTUALLY looked like one of those women, she might have a point (I think one of the articles I posted says something along those lines.) Basically, what they're saying is, this woman isn't beautiful, but Angelina Jolie and Adriana Lima ARE (even though most of the time we see them, they are styled/airbrushed/what have you - and that looking a certain way is their full-time job) so if you don't look like them, as few women in the real world do, you're not really beautiful. They're knocking all women down a peg just to put this one woman with issues in her place. We have to stop making comparisons when it comes to female beauty and just accept women as they are.Samantha Brick’s Daily Mail Troll Continues, “Ten Out of Ten” Men Would ‘Fancy’ Her at a Party
"When I read the piece before I saw her, I was expecting a glossy-and-pouty lipped, bronzed and perfectly coiffed Adriana Lima-lookalike- I really was. (...) the greatest irony is that the woman who wrote it is very, very painfully average. And I am being incredibly charitable there."
i'd say that about sums it up...
