Dear Zara


So many of you thought this was a good idea. The model booker, the stylist, the photographer, the model agent, the people at Zara's HQ, the people at Zara's web place and so forth and so on.
Well, you know what?
This end consumer hates you for thinking this is the kind of ideal you think best serves your consumers.
Go ahead, click that image and take a closer look.

  1. Det sjukaste är att jag inte är säker på att jag skulle ha reagerat om jag sett bilden okommenterad i sitt ursprungliga sammanhang. Så van!

  2. I think this might actually be a fake body. I was reading recently about how stores are now superimposing models heads on digitally created bodies. How perverse!

  3. det är just det. att man bara förväntas äta upp det, att det blivit så standard att se unga kvinnor SÅ HÄR smala presenterade som ett ideal.

  4. I'm sure it's photoshopped. At least the thighs. As a human, a mother, daughter, sister, friend, I react.

    I'm sure there are some (part-gazelle) adolescents out there who have this kind of body, naturally, at age 13. But that we, grown up women, should be encouraged to strive towards this ideal is...preposterous.

  5. that is some serious amount of photoshopping--it looks as if they were trying to emulate the images in the alexander mcqueen book, which were so digitally altered that the model's body looked just like a mannequin's, albeit one that looked super realistic. but this is just freaky, like they put a human head on the body of an anorexic mannequin.

  6. Som kvinna och mamma så HATAR jag sånt här! Önskar att min dotter slipper samma kroppshat som jag än idag kämpar mot.

  7. BRA EMI! Rätt beslut.

  8. Helt sjukt! Inte snyggt! Urk!
    Hon ser dock ut som bokstaven Z... som i Zara.
