Feelings: The “Marie Claire” Situation

October 27, 2010

Writing about a fashion magazine’s blog isn’t typically a topic I’d address here, but lets’ talk about it anyway. Everyone else is. Marie Claire‘s blogger Maura Kelly hit a lot of nerves with her yay or nay: fatties get a room already post.

I don’t feel like taking this Kelly gal to task for being a dick or spelling things wrong; or even harp on the unnamed Marie Claire editor who allegedly asked the question that spawned Kelly’s post.

I really just want to take this moment of outrage to check out some hot vintage photographs of people big, small, medium, mustachioed, and wrinkled. Because the sexiest — the most gorgeous/appealing/interesting — faces and bodies don’t often look like a Real Housewife of Orange County. Just a reminder.

    Hear, hear! Love all the photos as well, especially the cross-dresser and the old lady.
