my letter to Calvin Klein

What are you trying to say when you design clothes to hang on women-as-hangers rather than women-as-women?

Never mind the clothes, this girl needs someone to make her a sandwich.

    I like that you’ve said so much with so few words. And it’s funny. Bonus!

    They all do it, not just Calvin. I saw these pics in the NY Times and that model is actually kind of busty, from some angles. You know size 0-2 is considered “model” size and you have to be 5’11”, as well (or at least very tall). That IS anorexic, imo. Not normal at all, and no normal woman will ever look like that in those clothes.

    I just read an article about Crystal Renn, a “plus size” model. Guess what? “Plus size” means size 8-10, and again, 5’11 or so. I was NEVER a size 8 and I was considered very thin in High School, at 5’9″ and 135 lbs. I wore a size 12-14. That’s considered FAT these days, yet I looked quite svelte.

    Crazy the pressures young women have on themselves nowadays. How can modern young women escape eating disorders with all this ridiculousness about size? It’s terrible.
