Marissa Miller is 8 years younger than me. Whereas I got to see Star Wars when it first came out she was probably still getting used to solid food. Another difference? She’s a wildly successful model who has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issues and a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Me? I’m crabby and frequently crave a burrito.
I noticed her a while back when she first burst onto the scene. She had an all-American girl sexiness to her. Would I complain if she ever asked me to wrestle alligators with her? Probably not. I mean, she’s an avid surfer so she’s pretty buff and healthy. The only issue that I have with her concerns these recent images of her (click on the thumbnail for the full-sized image):
I think she is HOT but I desperately want to feed her a sandwich. There comes a point when you think ‘Wow, that is a good looking woman but, yeesh, she’s skinny.’. Whatever happened to voluptuous women with curves? I’m not complaining, mind you. I have no problem admiring attractive women at all. It just so happens that, in reality, I come across women every day who are just as beautiful but not as thin or ripped. I can only imagine what images like these do for young girl’s self-image.
It goes without saying, though, that the untouched photos of Marissa Miller during a shoot portray her as naturally slender, unlike the Ralph Lauren model/photoshop debacle. Women should realize that when it comes down to it, it really doesn’t matter. Don’t fall prey to the misconceived notions of what is sexy and hip and cool that inundates society via various media channels.
Just be yourself. You’ll be a lot happier that way in the long run.
Unless, of course, Marissa Miller maintains this body and still eats like a horse. If that’s the case then I’m absolutely smitten.
