It has been said that Supermodels are nothing more than genetic mutants. Really, how else could someone end up that tall and that thin with such perfect hair and skin?
 I have my own theory. They are really just aliens from another planet sent here to force us all to try to attain some unattainable standard of beauty. 

Take Giselle for example. She's been quoted as saying that she doesn't have to wear foundation or even brush her hair. Guess what she gets for all that "effort"? Yea, to look like this.

And then there is Allesandra Ambrisio who looks like this 5 months after having a baby. I put in the "before" picture because I too do not believe it.

Hedi, yeah well she's had three kids prior to this photo being taken. 

The reason that I am mentioning this is that the word on the street is that Giselle has joined my gym. Now that she is supposedly engaged to Tom Brady (which of course she denies) I imagine she will be spending quite a bit of time there during football season.

OK, if I have to run on the treadmill next to this? Hmmm that's going to do wonders for a girl's self esteem. Really, shouldn't "these people" have their own gym. A gym for people with the same "abnormalities" as they have? 

I'm just saying, if I see her in my Yoga class I may just have to trip her.

if you see her, let me know! M-F I'm just down the street on Boylston- and I'll stop by your yoga class and put bubble gum in her abnormally long perfect hair!

Watch out Giselle, this town is only big enough for ONE BostonBride- and I got here first!

that girl? said...

Hey come on... you can hold your own next to her! And if she looks too perfect then you have my full permission to trip her. Just make a good job of it! x

You make me laugh YM! I love it...and yes, if she decides to go out and use a public gym, versus staying at her posh hotel/condo and use their gym, she totally deserves to get tripped...having said that, I agree with can totally hold your own Yummy!

Ps Yum, I saw your twitter...I did not receive my Gilt invite - snif snif! I checked Spam and I don't think it's there - I hope it did not get deleted. xo

I prefer to think that they've got lots of make-up, air-brushing and personal trainers-shoppers-makeup-artists etc. to look like that. And just to be a bit more bitchy, a friend of mine once saw Kate Moss in London and she did not recognise her so bad and wash-out she looked. Mmmm, could it be that maybe she wasn't Kate Moss at all?

oh wow. make sure you walk out of the gym when she does so a paparazzi snaps a photo and you end up in US Weekly as 'unidentified gal pal'


alliwilli said...

HA! Yeah, I don't think that aliens such as these really work out at the gym. She'll probably just stand in a pose on a treadmill.

i think id rather be hit by a bus than have to run on the treadmill next to her.

beyond US Weekly's unidentified gal pal,you don't want to be unidentified lady in the background wiping her sweaty face with a towel or dribbling water down her shirt. You better what out for those flashes.
