I’ll Never Be a Supermodel. No, Really.

3 Feb

I’m sort of obsessed with models.  My obsession is a carry-over from the 90s era of the supermodel.  As I teenager, I spent many Saturday afternoons listening to George Micheal’s “Freedom” while sitting in front of my bedroom mirror with a month-old issue of Vogue laying next to my open Caboodle trying to figure out what shade of Wet ‘n Wild eye shadow I had would most closely match the one in the picture of Cindy, Naomi, Christy or Kate I was looking at.  The thing that didn’t make this obsession unhealthy was that I was a pretty grounded teenager, and I understood that these women were essentially freaks.

My obsession continues, however, and once in a while I find myself over at style.com checking out the fresh new faces of the season (yes, they’re getting younger and younger).  My most recent search lead me to this beauty:

She’s beautiful, right?  Nothing out of the ordinary here, except………………THIS IS A MAN!  Seriously.  His name is Andrej Pejic, and there is nothing drag queeny about this kid.  He’s straight up beautiful.

I have been vindicated!  I am now positive that the images of fashion models, actresses and other celebrities we’re bombarded with daily are all illusions.  No matter how much you diet, how much you spend (or shoplift) on your clothes, how much make up you have on, how you do your hair, you will never attain the definition of beauty that has been shoveled down our throats, because none of that stuff will make you grow a weenie.
