Fat is no longer feminine

"The prized 36-24-36 is now undergoing plastic procedures to achieve a distorted image called lean and ultra thin 'size zero'. Karena was the first such celebrity to join this bandwagon. The actress is believed to be so obsessed with her looks that she has slimmed down to a shocking 48 kgs. And to add to this, she's even proclaimed that she wants to look as thin and stylish as Victoria Beckham."

Babuna Biswal: August 24, 2008

Fat is no longer feminine, thanks to the size zero trend that is catching up. The fat that used to be flaunted has gone out of fashion and flat is the fitting fashion statement these days.

Courtesy, the current western fashion trend, the fever has also caught our celebrities back home. Since our own voluptuous Kareena toed that trend, an entire generation of youngsters wants to be reed thin, notwithstanding the risk. The vicious trend of shedding flesh to look beautiful by turning stick thin is such that we are in a process of redefining beauty sans a healthy body. The lissome lasses our trained eyes adulated all these years will cease to interest us. The curvaceous beauties, which we furtively ogled at, will never earn our plaudits any longer.

For ages we preferred our women with lot of meat on their bones, voluptuous figures, well proportioned with curves where it is required. Women having the prized statistics of 36-24-36 used to attract adjectives usually attached to feminine beauty. Evidences are aplenty in temple holes, sculptures from which our beauty takes inspiration. The literatures and panegyrics of beauty have always gone gaga over women with vital statistics but not without them.

Well-chiseled, top heavy, not so thin middle portion, figurines with ample love handles have always fired the imagination of feminine beauty lovers. Have a cursory look at the yester year heroines; it is hard to find a bamboo stick heroine whom one deems beautiful. There were some slim beauties but they were certainly not without their vital statistics nor can they be called skinny. Rather these yesteryear beauties were in close similarity with the beauties sculpted in temple terraces. Even actresses of nineties, be it Rekha, Sridevi, Madhuriwere well proportioned and curvaceous to be called beautiful. And take any beauty which had 'burnt a thousand hearts, or fired million mutinies' were in the healthier side and certainly no way 'anorexic' as per the current trend. However our age old concept of beauty is in a process of change. An ultra-thin size beauty is set to storm our past concept of beauty.

The thinner and slimmer versions just like our electronic gadgets are going to replace our curvaceous past. Since these “itty bitty titty committy” have showcased their 'flat as a pancake figures', and strutted their no stuff, an entire generation of youngsters are dying to fit into this unattainable - bust size: 31.5 inches (80 cm); Waist size: 23 inches (59 cm); hip size: 32 inches (82 cm).

The size zero craze already taken a few lives, and gained notoriety since the death of Uruguay model Luisel Ramos died after tripping on the ramp. The diseased desire has not ended with this lone casualties, rather an entire new diseased mindset has perpetuated since then. Some good souls, who can be called as redeemers of age-old beauty, have even put a ban on this figure obsession by keeping these models off from international fashion arenas.

Many a models have died of this mania but the manic obsession is yet to die among these models. Recently our own celebrities have been struck by this mania. The prized 36-24-36 is now undergoing plastic procedures to achieve a distorted image called lean and ultra thin 'size zero'. Karena was the first such celebrity to join this bandwagon. The actress is believed to be so obsessed with her looks that she has slimmed down to a shocking 48 kgs. And to add to this, she's even proclaimed that she wants to look as thin and stylish as Victoria Beckham.

The skinny obsession has a heavy pricetag too as most of us well aware of the news that Kareena Kapoor fainted on the sets of Tashan. Not only Kareena many fashion divas and goddesses are said to have gone wild in their race to get gorgeous, instigating a huge number of young girls endanger their lives trying to emulate their on-screen image. But the question is whether the obsession of fitting into a jeans size of 22 inch waist line will overhaul our age old concept of beauty. Will the mania kick start a range of beauty statistics?

Post 'Om Santi Om' there was a concourse of youngsters who went crazy to have a 'six pack'. But thankfully Tashan is not a big hit unlike “Om Santi Om'. Had it been so because we have found our adjectives for beauty overhauled? Instead of heaping panegyrics on those curves in traditional terms we would have been cursing on them. Our adjectives would have been smitties, titty less, chess boards, boners, flatties, beautiful anorexics, hip-less heroines, brittle boned beauties, varicose veined lasses, sticks. Thanks to the failure of Tashan, we did not have to overhaul our adjectival armory.
