This is a true indication of the cruelty in the fashion industry. The lady on the left has wings, but the lady on the right has no arms. Surely the lady with no arms should have been given wings.

I think you should include more options in the list above…like feathered flock.. or something of that sort..

Dunno y, but Marissa Miller… seems…. like an.. so… disproportionate?? :)

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Easy Shra! You are going to have to cut back on the dosage.Marissa looks just fine. Oh, so fine.

Posted by Dave | Report as abusive

Sure, Shra, if by disproportionate you mean like an angel.

Boys, I am sure she looks just “fine” to you…. I was merely speaking from the normal healthy woman’s point of view… she must weigh like what, 45 lbs? look at her arms..!! I can see her bones!!Ok… before I am backed in a corner here by med-guzzling bears, am gonna take my own medication and drool at Mr.Fab Abs… 😛

Do you know what would have been better to go with this title?A picture of a panda.Maybe in lingerie if such a thing could be found. But just a panda would have been fine.
