Is Hollywood Embracing Curves?
Only a few short months ago, we were talking about Hollywood boobs. Or, more accurately, the lack thereof, when we noticed that more and more, celebs were joining the itty-bitty titty committee. After the Golden Globes, however, some see the trend reversing. Writes one New York Times blogger who saw an emergence of curves on the whole:
“Maybe it’s just me, but I could have sworn that some of the ladies who showed up at the Golden Globes on Sunday had put on a little weight. It’s almost criminal to name names, because the very actresses whose body-mass indexes have been the subject of endless tabloid speculation are the very ones now sporting sexier curves. You could definitely see the difference if you concentrated solely on the upper arms … ”
Similarly, Refinery 29 noticed a surge in boob glorification, asking, “What was up with all the cleavage?”
Curve-embracing fashion has certainly been a hot topic of debate over the past few weeks, thanks to V and Glamour magazines making a concerted effort to show the big and the beautiful. Do you think it’s possibly had an influence on Hollywood? Do you see an emerging trend that steers away from boyish, anorexic bodies, and instead embraces the (at least slightly) voluptuous?
