Why can't Hollywood and Fashion ever agree on the female form?

21 April 2010

Curves v. androgyny – the debate wages on. When it comes to hem-lengths and sleeve-shapes this season’s ‘in’s are straight forward to copy– but with body shape, no-one in Hollywood or planet fashion seems to be in agreement.  

The catwalk’s heralding ‘real women’ with cleavage, with designers like Giles Deacon and Prada using Victoria’s Secret models at fashion week. The music charts is led by pear-shaped popstars, with Beyonce and Lily Allen embracing their hippy hips in crotch skimming skirts.  

Meanwhile Hollywood’s ideal silhouette is a whole lot sleeker. As we reported last month, actresses with fake breasts have been banned from the Pirates of the Caribbean set. Silicon’s reputation hasn’t been helped by Heidi Montag (whose breasts are now so unnaturally inflated, doctors have refused her request to make them even bigger).

Sharon Osbourne yesterday told the Today Show she is having surgery this summer to have her 34DD breast implants removed. Meanwhile Kate Hudson - who always said she was content being flat-chested as it meant she could wear plunging necklines - is rumoured to have had breast implants.

Ok, we’re confused – should we be crash dieting, reaching for some dumbbells or just embracing our natural figures? Has Hollywood or Fashionland got it right? Tell us, what’s your body shape of desire?
