Model chowing down - Sexy?

I'm in a real dilemma about this one. I came across these photos of plus size model Crystal Renn. They'll be appearing in the October Vogue Paris:

 Chicken Bone.

Spaghetti.

  Non-specific red meat.


I'm just going to say it, I'm grossed out by these. I  have been known to feast like a grown man. But, chicken on the bone, bloody red meats, spaghetti on my face and squid really gross me out.

What I can't figure out is this: Am I disgusted by the sight of a model doing a a very natural human thing? Or am I sicked out by her eating like a porn star? Or am i just sicked out that she had a squid in her mouth? I think it may be a little bit of all these.

The lady in me is just shocked and appalled at her atrocious manners. The feminist in me feels guilty for being grossed out at the sight of a big girl chowing down. I"m mad at myself for being such a pop culture zombie that fashion + food is so shocking to me.

But what do you think?

  1. I'm thinking these are just gross pictures. Very "raw". Which appeal to some, not me. It could have been Giselle in the same poses and I would have been grossed out.

  2. I guess the point was to make you feel grossed. I'm really confused... are we just making women feel even worse about body image? This actually is pretty insulting the more I think about it.... "Tongue and cheek" my ass. Oh well, I guess they accomplished their goal by us talking about it.

  5. Send Clear Photos When sending photos into an agency, they need to be clear enough so that they can actually see what you look like. great company
