The Devil Wears Prada

I'm on a roll, more posts!!
(I edited this piece, it wasn't very clear)

I am no fashion crazy nut, but I wanted to see this movie. To be completely honest, I just wanted to see because I wanted to see Anne Hathaway's make over. I wanted to watch them apply the makeup, I am the type of person that would try and do the same to myself but they didn't show it. I watched it anyway, I was liking the way she looked and the movie was quite interesting and very glamorous.

I watched it and I found to be the same message every modeling agency gives their models, "You're too fat," Anne Hathaway certainly is not fat, and to have the boss on the movie tell her she is makes us think that we are never good enough. My sister is only thirteen at the moment, and I wanted to watch it with her. But, like all thirteen year olds, she would probably take the weight issue seriously. There are too many magazines out there making young girls objects rather than humans. Anyway, in the end Anne drops to a size 4, but nothing was wrong with her original size. All woman have different body shapes. Let's embrace that instead of kill the idea of individuality.

Great comments! Perhaps you could submit your posts to a teen magazine. Such sensible and caring advice about weight and your sister. You write so well. Good Luck. Kateri
