Posh is Too Skinny for her Own Clothes

Posh Spice has banned size 0 models from showing off her clothing line. The Daily Mail is reporting that she has enlisted 'voluptuous' Brazilian model Daniella Sarahyba to represent her brand. Ok, wait. First of all, Daniella is 'voluptuous'?? Marylin Monroe was voluptuous. She is certainly beautiful, but voluptuous? I guess standing next to Posh she might be, but look at her! That is so not voluptuous!
Anyway, I digress. A source tells The Daily Mail:
"Victoria wants to give out a positive image that you don't have to be ultra skinny to look good. Many of the models on the catwalk make young girls feel insecure about their own bodies. Victoria doesn't want to be accused of giving young girls a complex about their image and putting pressure on them to be as skinny as her."
Normally I would applaud this kind of move by any clothing designer but Posh Spice? Is she kidding? She might weigh 80 pounds soaking wet! And you don't have to be a plastic surgeon to know she wasn't born with those boobs. But yeah, ok, thanks Spice for your concern over what these super skinny models might be doing to the self esteem of young girls today. Someone pass her a hamburger.

In todays world to be skinny and beautiful is extremely important and anyone who is not is of little importance. I agree with this blog in that Posh Spice has no right to say that size zero models cannot model her clothes when she is clearly less than that size. If she is so worried about the impression these models will leave on others then she should be more concerned with her own weight.
