Don't feed the models...

There's a common misconception that models don't eat, and that they all suffer from some type of eating disorder. Okay so they are thinner than the average person, and some are just naturally that way, although some may have issues with food as well. Modeling seems to incorporate a lot of food and beverages in their ads, although we can't tell if they actually eat that food, it's still a semi-ironic thing to look at...



















I usually try to do these posts to pertain to what I'm doing with my life, or vice versa. Yesterday I went to dinner at my mentor's house. It was surprisingly a lot of fun, filled with trying food that I had never eaten (Honestly, we do not eat catfish in my house), having intelligent English major conversations, and even getting entertained with some live piano entertainment (2 words: Fur Elise)...
PS: Had to snap pictures inside because the rain would not subside.

Your outfit is very polished! The navy skirt is the perfect length. And those colors, to me; with out even trying is giving me a nautical theme. I would love a green rain jacket like yours!

Most of the time it just looks like ads are using food as tools to sex up the picture (or to at least imply some sort of carnal behaviour), but it does look different in some of the pictures you posted as well XD

Also, that green coat is a feast for the eyes especially on a dreary day! Am loving the bright colour <3

I think people need to stop fussing about "unhealthy models" we all know to not emulate them already. People should be more worried about over sexualizing women.
