  • If this is "stunning," I'll stay fat, thanks anyway.

    Saw this photo on a UK news site. They described Ms. Angelina Jolie as "stunning," and continued to rave about how lovely and attractive she is.

    I don't know about you, but "skeletal" has never equaled "stunning" in my book.

    I will say this. She could use a sammich, and the picture is stunning. (Which I've come to expect from Leibovitz)

    The photo is, in truth, an arresting image. The lack of pure sunlight, the sharpness of the boat versus the near-blur of the greens. Even as a focal point, Ms. Jolie (if she were minus the bag she's advertising) is posed in such a way as to capture the imagination.

    What I see is a lost child in a wasteland, whose grim reality is one I can't begin to imagine, in need of rescue...but perhaps no. She's survived thus far; she might not survive in another world.

    Unfortunately, this is a Louis Vuitton advert, so nevermind all that. But to say she specifically is "stunning," well, that just stretches it. It only encourages the stereotype that only the uber-thin are worthy of similar star-status. Ugh!
