hmmmmm.... so how do you explain models like Kate Moss or Cameron Diaz? Ever seen pictures of them without makeup, lighting, or editing? Tragic.

I agree, though, that most successful models have fantastic bone structure, nice eye shape, balanced facial features, and are skinnier than most... this helps the people actually creating the image. It's a good blank canvas to begin with.

Hilarious! I've always said many regular women would look a lot better than many models and other celebrities had they had access to all these magic tricks.

The sad part is plenty of men (granted, usually young) nowadays not only believe such women exist, but some of them also think that's the way they look when they wake up in the morning.

Yes, and the name my college buddy and I came up with for them was "Lonely Guys".

There are always going to be extremists out there that want women to look perfect or that feel that they shouldn't have to make any effort to look healthy or attractive. I leave those people with thier own decision and choose to associate with the more rational people on the topic.
