Have Times Changed? Is the Super Skinny Fad Over?

Okay, so we all remember the skinny (border-line anorexic) unhealthy days of the stars that graced the covers of every tabloid. I think it all started back with Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen circa 2005 but anyway, we looked up to these fashionistas with stick thin figures. Was this just a fad?

Sure being naturally thin is great, but embracing your body and being healthy is the most important thing. Pushing yourself to skip meals or even go as far as drugs to keep up with the skinny trend? I personally know so many girls who acted on this epidemic.

I think it was only a matter of time before Hollywood needed to see a change. The past year we have seen celebs embrace themselves for who they are. Kim Kardashian (as much as we are all sick of her) has done amazing things for boosting girls’ self esteem and helping them accept their curves.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE NEW OUTLOOK? I would love to hear from you about this topic!
