The Casting Dock

To those model haters out there…

For those of you perplexed by the facial expressions and general demeanor of the models featured in the last BHLDN Valentine’s Day post, it should be noted that I AGREE. Their facial expressions denote a great many things, none of which relate to the joy one feels on her wedding day. Believe it or not (and for those of you who don’t believe it, you will in about 1.5 seconds when you glance at my overwhelming evidence below…), I chose the most respectable and semi-normal images of the girls modeling the dresses that I liked.

I had this option at my disposal:

Talk about confusing, what-the-heck-is-she-doing-AND-thinking body language. And perhaps the most important question–why, of the no-doubt hundreds of images captured, was this one chosen to be featured on the website?

And while we’re on the topic, here are a few more whaaaaat’s going on there shots (still from BHLDN)…

Many aspects of the fashion world elude me. I am eagerly awaiting the shift back towards really anything except the stick-thin-is-in look. It’ll come. Everything cycles around. But it sure does seem like it’s taking FOR-EVER.

I think you should embrace it (the anything except the stick-thin-is-in look) NOW.

When surveyed high school boys much preferred girls who had, as they say, some meat (curves) on them to the ones whose bones on their backs encompassed the major element of a hug. …eich!
Wisdom from the mouths of babes(or a bit older than babes)!

that’s funny i am so blind to these things that i look at the girls and don’t even see their faces. I looked at the pics for like a whole 30 seconds before I looked at Jerry’s comment. I just saw skinny girls in dresses. Once Jerry pointed out the expressions, only then could i see them.

They look ridiculous and unhealthy to me. Maybe their faces reflect how hungry they are!
