The media has been buzzing all day about Candice Swanepoel, the Victoria Secret Angel, looking to skinny at yesterday’s LA VS SWIM event. Reports are stating that she is too thin and seems to have lost quite a bid of weight from just a few months ago which has raised some concern.
I find the media and Hollywood’s perception of women to be so fickle. It’s so bipolar with some women being to thin, others too fat. Some with cellulite, others with exposed spinal columns. Some who need to tone up or get shit on for being a normal weight (which in Hollywood is fat). How are young girls and celebrities for that matter supposed to be comfortable with themselves and develop healthy eating behaviors when the media displays anorexic women or calls normal healthy women fat? Then the media gets on someone for being to thin and it’s as if no one can win.
Candice looks good but I agree she is a bit too thin, especially for Victoria Secret. That is one magazine that likes curvy and natural women so I’m surprised she is so tiny. I hope they too are not moving towards the starved waif look for all their models.
A post on the Hollywood Life website said Candice was
“scarily, skeletally, stick-thin,” while CBS News stated that she looked “startlingly slim.”
Back in November, Swanepoel told press,
“Actually, this year my problem has been more putting the weight on and getting muscle on because it’s been really busy. I’ve been traveling around like crazy. I get skinnier if I’m very busy.”
Here are the pics from yesterday, what does everyone think??:
Here are older pics of her, do you think she has lost weight and is too skinny now or do you like her new bod better??
