Oh, the days when supermodels were super because they

>> Wednesday, August 5, 2009

had bodies and faces actually worth the term "super." Unlike the models of today, who look the same and have the same vapid expression on their faces whenever I see them the few times a year I page through a fashion mag.

Considering that there are men who still dream of dating and fucking models, other than Gisele B√ľndchen, who seems semi interesting and unique, why bother? None of the "super" models of today can hold a candle to the ones from the early 90s, even the Victoria Secret ones. They're all ridiculously skinny now. The Victoria Secret ones just happen to have enough boobage for the bras and do the same, ridiculous, "come hither" pose.

The Vogue 100th anniversary cover from 1992, where each model poses differently, is styled differently and has a face that can easily be distinguished from the rest. Less than 20 years ago, just barely. It's from a time when a model, rather than a celebrity, on the cover of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar or even Cosmopolitan was a regular occurrence and a no-brainer. The models of today? Seriously, why bother?
