yeah, but my, how she wears them, eh?

Mitt Romney did the same.

And is unusually tall and has just the right combination of features. It's a genetic lottery. Hell, her sisters are hot enough, but they didn't happen to hit that outlier for height like Gisele did.

I, too, can wear clothes and walk but am I being paid that much money? Not even close.

However, from what I just read in the article, she wears clothes and walks AT THE SAME time! It appears that I've been bested.

I'm like the one person in the world who does not find her attractive.

Give me Claudia Schiffer any day over Giselle Bundchen. Hell, gimme Anna Nicole Smith in her prime over Giselle Bundchen. Compared to other super models, I really dont' find her hot.

She has a great body, but manface is a huge turnoff for me.

I don't think she's that pretty either but people hear the word "supermodel" and fall all over themselves. She obviously has business sense and/or good managers to make the money she does and she has that douchebag Tom Brady throughly pussywhipped so she's got that going for her, which is nice.

/would sell my left ovary to look like Adriana Lima though

Came to the thread for a bunch of women hating on her. Left satisfied.

I've often said that modelling is society's way of throwing money at beautiful people with no useful skills.

"Well, you're dumb as a post, and you can't sing, play sports, act, or write, but you're beautiful so OF COURSE we're going to give you a lot of money. Here put these ridiculous clothes on. Now, walk over there. Turn left.....no, your other left....no your OTHER, other left. Good, now walk back this way. Good job! Now here's forty thousand dollars. You earned every penny."

I prefer Linda Evangelista, because she's into penguins.

If I had her for a week, she wouldn't be able to walk very well.
 
2012-06-18 04:15:21 PM  
Imagine how much money she could make if she didn't wear clothes :P.

The big thing with models is height and shape, not face. And even with face, it's about having a distinctive "look"

Not especially CSB: I sometimes go to a restaurant that is often visited by Kate Moss. A couple of times, I've sat at the next table. I mind my own business and treat her like any other attractive woman at the next table.

And the thing is that she has a distinctive look, and a certain presence, but she actually isn't that pretty. I'd take one of the waitresses home first.

Then again, I never get the "FHM Hottest Women in the World" lists. What, a million guys all happen to find one of 100 women attractive? Anne Hathaway is truly, exceptionally beautiful, but you go to places like Chelsea and you'll see lots of women that are as attractive as Natalie Portman or Keira Knightley.

I was with you until you implied Natalie Portman was common. Maybe it's just me, but I think her face is perfection.

actually, you might be right. But a lot of actresses, go and sit in a cafe in Sloane Square in London and you'll see rich, beautiful women that are way out of your league.

Keira Knightley's face is perfection. Natalie Portman just happens to look like her sometimes.

I'd gladly take the job of brushing sand off Giselle's rear end, but I think that job's already taken...

I've worked on a bunch of fashion shows, and lemme tell ya, there are definitely skill levels involved in runway modeling. Crappy models can upset a whole (usually highly choreographed) show. For example: 150 amateur models who doublestep their way through rehearsals, when the timing is getting worked out but they want to get the hell out, will do an about-face when the audience, cameras, and spotlights are on them and drag their feet, milking their runway time for every second they can. (A crowd of them taking just a few extra seconds apiece can add up to a lot of extra time.) And that's on top of all the expected fumbles, twitches, and inability to stand still with poise and confidence. Maybe they remember the choreography, if it's been drilled into them enough.

I do music design for the shows, so that's just what I see from FOH. I can guarantee the stage managers (who really should be issued cattle prods) have a whole other set of war stories.

/45 million? I won't defend that, but I will at least give some credit where it's due

A few years ago I would have sharply disagreed with you but one thing I've noticed is that the older she gets the more, um......"German" she looks. Knowattamean? Something tells me ol' Tommy's gonna wake up one morning, roll over and think "YEEESSH! Time to trade this one in for a new model", (no pun intended).

I honestly don't think that's attractive. Tiny butt and not much by way of curves. Cindy Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, etc. THAT'S hot.

I'm sure whoever is doing it currently isn't using his face; I would use my face.

That is all.

dammit.... now im never gonna be able to look at Tebow without feeling ... peculiar again.

I think the point is that someone, presumably the people paying her, believe that they are making more money paying her to wear clothes and walk, then not paying her to wear clothes and walk. Presumably by the people who want other people to buy those clothes. Which is the point, that she's in sales, and probably being paid less than what she's seen to bring in. Which is apparently more than $45m in additonal sales, which is apparently impressive in the rag trade.

The highest paid piece of ass.
You know it's not gonna last.
Those magazines end up in the trash., yeah

What's the big idea?
None of that stuff is even real.
Wanna know how they really feel, yeah

$5000 123288 a day,
Is what they pay my baby
For her pretty face.

I came over as soon as she called.
'Cause she's a living doll.
And she's famous for nothing at all., yeah
She's living life like a dream,
With a false sense of self-esteem.
I wish she'd trade places with me,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

$5000 123288 a day,

For being just another pretty face.
