hmm on Jan 08, 2014 @ 01:05 pm what you're saying is, they realized the general public does not like looking at protruding bones anymore? Huh. ;)

She still looks unattainably skinny and as a mom of a teenage daughter, this does not go far enough to give girls a representation of what "healthy" should look like. It might be "healthy" for a small fraction of the population. Anyone else who aspires to look like this can only achieve it with dangerous malnutrition.
