The fashion channels show what happens on the runway but they do not drive what happens there. If you don't like what you see, why do you keep watching? Does your tv not have an "off" switch?
Cleary you didn't read and take on board what I said. Moderator cut: Rude.

Sure some fat chick will go out and try to Google "anorexic model" and try to post here, but from what I have seen in watching Fashion TV over the past year or more, those types of models no longer exist. You'll still see thin women but they are GOOD LOOKING HEALTHY THIN WOMEN.

Get yourself Fashion TV and check out the greatest shows that are on tv:

Midnite Haute - comes on a 9:00pm every night here on the west coast. Probably midnite everywhere else. Nothing but sexy sexy fashion - lingere, swimsuits, sexy high fashion photoshoots, etc.

Swimwear - nothing but swimsuit fashion on the runway and/or designer swimwear photo shoots.

Lingere - nothing but lingere on the runway.

Here is some smoking hot model sexiness for you:

I think they are missing the boat here. While most of them are attractive, for mine variety is the spice of life.
Now while I'm not suggesting having overweight or obese models, more variety would give it more appeal. A little more meat on the bones would be ok.
Pretty much all the women are small breasted, again they are mostly attractive. But why not have some larger chested women as well, to mix it up.
Same goes for height, women a little shorter women would add some more variety.

What about Megan Gale?... I'd like to see more models like this

She couldn't get a gig here, went to Italy and became quite popular

To me, that's the epitome of laziness. You cannot call yourself a designer if you are not capable of designing and fitting all sorts of women for one show. Unless the clothes were created beforehand, there should be no excuse.

By limiting to fashion to a "one size fit all" mentality, it's an insult to everyone in the trade.

Like Tim Gunn says, "Make it work".

If you actually watched a lot of fashion different designers take different types of girls to show whatever creations they are pushing. Couture fashion is not just about being sexy just like every women is not putting on an outfit wondering how sexy they are as the only focus. Its also not for turning on men. Its artsy and fun and more for turning on the mind.

epic feel, clean, refined fantasy.

More to taste than just "would I bend her over"
