Wow, major league elite body.  Where have they been hiding her?  I wish VS would get a few heterosexual males to pick their models.

@curvefan "I wish VS would get a few heterosexual males to pick their models." Haha +1 for that.

I think it's honestly amazing how much the "ideal" body for both men and women has changed since the media and corporations have become more powerful. From a historical and biological frame of reference, the "ideal female body" of today seems strikingly odd. Men have traditionally preferred women with large hips, a big bust, smaller, and not having such low body fat. These typically act as biological cues for a healthy woman capable of childbirth (large hips = fertility, large breasts = capability to feed the child, higher body fat = higher estrogen, etc.) and if one looks at statues of Greek Goddesses, one will notice that they typically have more shapely thighs, curvier waists, etc. However, the ideal body of today is represented through the VS Angel: boyish hips, often masculine jaws, excessively low body fat, etc. I think a lot of this has to do with media influence because if one looks at poorer nations, such as those in Latin America, India, etc. there is still a large market for more "volumptuous" females, but even this is decreasing with the increasing westernization of these emerging markets.

The same can roughly be attributed to males as well. Even in the 80s, the most powerful men in entertainment were muscular and strong like Arnold, Sylvester Stallone, etc. Now, we have boyish pussies like Justin Beiber, Shia LeBouf, etc. being the main idols. I'm not sure if it's because of increased marketing toward teenagers (teenagers will idolize those who look more similar to them) or what, but it's shocking to me how much preferences have changed and how they more mimic that of a homosexual male (not that there's anything wrong with that!) than of what is a heterosexual male would typically prefer. Homosexual males have much more power in the modeling world, so it makes sense for this preference to dominate there, however, as more actresses/actors strive to have a "model-like" body, this fascination has found it's way into more widespread/mainstream media as well.

Sorry for the rant haha. I've just always thought this topic is fascinating.
