    i love her new hair! and she looks amazing, as always. I think shes one of those naturally skinny girls but living in hollywood means she still eats not much to stay even skinnier and works out for muscle tone. sigh

    • Mariedeparis

      I agree with you but i really think she is to skinny it’s sad she is truly beautiful …

  • KT

    I can’t remember her longer hair but I am loving her somewhat casual yet super sexy look!

  • Kaya

    love her outfit she looks great except for the fact, for me it would look better if she gained 10 pounds.

  • Jordan

    love the short hair and color, not so much the outfit

  • bec

    I think she looks gorgeous here. I really like the outfit. Although I loved the longer wavy hair style she always rocked (and was so jealous of it), I think she looks adorable with the shorter hair.

  • christina

    I’m sorry, I don’t want to sound bitchy, but why would anybody think she’s starving or at least on a diet?? Is that an american thing (and PLEASE don’t take that the wrong way). I just came back from kickboxing class and half the girls there are as thin as Shenae. Is that because I live in Europe? Do we have a different perspective because people are generally thinner than in the States?

    I really hope, I didn’t offend anyone. It’s just something I have been noticing for quite a while now.

    • laliloo

      i wonder where you live because in France (where statistics show that people are slimmer than in other european countries) she would be skinny.

      • christina

        I didn’t say she’s fat or overweight. Of course she’s thin. I think she’s at a perfect weight.
        I’m just saying that I know a lot of people (normal people: family, friends) who are also skinny – and it’s natural. The assuption that someone must be on a diet or starving just because they’re thin bothers me.

        • xo

          I agree.. my best friend is 5’9 and only 115-120 max.. she eats everything and anything and hardly works out.. its the metabolism.. hers is thru the roof.. lucky girl..

          • laliloo

            i’m not saying she is on diet or has ED. I’m just saying that i dont agree with u when u say “half the girls are as thin as her”, and that in europe (that u take as an exemple) she would be seen as skinny too (or very slim if u prefer ). That’s it. Btw, i think she is lovely, even if i don’t like her in 90210.

    • alisa

      well i see girls that are fit and thin like her all the time. the commenters on this site don’t like thin girls very much i’ve decided…. well unless they have a pronounced butt or big boobs…. they all like “curvy” girls with extra meat on them. (although not everyone can gain their weight in those places) everyone can have their opinion but shenae is not too thin. she looks good

      • Alias

        Haha Alisa I completely agree with you. So many girls are even thinner than Shenae but if you say a thin girl looks good on this site, you will get ripped a new one by 90% of the commentors on here. That is EXACTLY why I do not normally come to this site anymore, or even bother to comment on the beautiful skinny girls. Shame. And Shenae is not even close to too skinny, she is gorgeous!

        • Alias

          Also, to anyone who doesn’t want to be attacked for liking a skinny girl – head over to The Skinny Website, they are much more accepting of different views and most chicks on there prefer a the slender beauties!

          • Instant

            Correction, they are more accepting of slim and those that like slim. I used to go to that site, but got a bit tired of anyone that is bigger than, say, a size 6 being called fat and anyone that liked the “bigger” girls being torn apart. And there are plenty of people on this site that prefer the slim girls like Shenae(and looking at the comments so far, they outnumber the ones that don’t. I think the reason it seems that the haters outnumber the non-haters is because the haters comments always stand out more than the non-haters, so it just seems to be more), just as there are those that like fuller figures. They ALL get attacked for their views, I’d say it’s pretty even on that front on this site.

          • Alias

            ^^See what I mean! Hahaha

            theskinnywebsite.com

          • Instant

            How did I prove your point? I don’t get it. I haven’t attacked anyone for saying Shanae looks great and not too thin(mainly because I agree with them, while she doesn’t even come close to my personal preference, I think she is pretty and looks natural at this size), I just disagreed with your opinion that the psoters on theskinnywebsite is more accepting of others views than the posters on this site are. My perception of that site is that they overwhelmingly prefer skinny/slim and are quite unforgiving of anyone that doesn’t fall into the skinny/slim category even if they are healthy. Granted, it’s been a while since I’ve been there, but that view is why I left it. If I’m wrong about that, I apologize for that, but I really don’t see how I proved that theskinnywebsite is more accepting of others’ views, I just proved that I haven’t been there in a long time and missed the change in attitude over there. I’m just saying that neither “skinny” or “curvy” gets more love the other, or more hate than the other, it’s fairly even here 😛

          • Juliette

            I have to second Instant.

            Even on this site, if somebody says they think x-celebrity is too thin – that person is “obviously” fat.
            If somebody says they think x-celebrity is too big – that person is “clearly” anorexic.
            Likewise, if somebody says they think x-celebrity is unattractive, that person is both fat and jealous.

            You can’t have an opinion without either being fat or anorexic or jealous. I’m sure somebody here has managed to have been accused of being all three.

          • Kae

            Are you kidding? Accepting of different views????? The girl who runs the site calls people fat cows and is pro-ana. This is more of a pro-health website. That website is disturbing.

          • Versus

            You know, we have a policy about posting other websites in your comments with advertising purposes (and yours clearly was, since you are trying to redirect our readers)… and the policy is that we delete the links.
            But since so many posters already replied to you, I’m gonna let that slip.
            I just thought I’d mention that such a comment would be deleted on 95% of the celebrity sites I know.

          • jjj

            I’d have to agree with Alisa’s first point. Everyone who admires a girl with either a natural thing frame or a girl who worked hard for a thin figure is immediately attacked. That doesn’t really bother me that much, but the poor girls who are posted on this site, I do feel for them. I don’t understand why Shenae has been praised so much in this particular post, because generally she always gets attacked for being too thin. ALWAYS.. She looks happy and perfectly healthy, but she is too thin for people on this site.

            Usually if the girl has always been photographed thin, she is fine. But if she has ever weighed more and then lost weight to a size like Shenae, she immediately has an eating disorder or looks scary skinny. People talk about creating self esteem problems for women, what could be worse than telling a healthy girl who has worked hard for a perfect figure that she has a eating disorder or is scary skinny when she really has a awesome figure and looks great. You just can’t ruin someone’s self esteem more than that. It is sad..

        • well i for one agree with what you said. it’s like you say something nice about a thin woman and some people will think you’re crazy. i’m just giving my comment like everyone else and i think she represents the naturally skinny girls, not the ones who starve themselves.

          • Alias

            @bigvinmac Yes, thank you. I do not think the “anorexic” look is pretty, but people will say you are crazy if you think Jessica Alba’s skinny post baby body looks absolutely amazing! It’s absolutely ridiculous.

            @Instant – I think it’s apparent I wasn’t talking specifically about you, but I just feel that the majority of the people who comment on this site do support the curvy, full figured woman and generally think any skinny girl is unhealthy, anorexic and/or disgusting. When last time I checked, the Victoria’s Secret models were (and still are) the hottest things on the planet. And I do think the Skinny Website are more inclined towards the hot, tight bodied women, which is more my taste so I thought I would let other’s who agree with me know that there is another place where they can express their opinion on the skinny beauties.

            Bottom line, sometimes I think this site should be called “Curvy VS Curvier”.

          • liza

            Can we minimize on the drama? sheesh 🙂

          • Instant

            And the same is true for people complimenting non-thin women on here, they get treated like that by some people too. Every poster on here gets their fair share of people calling them crazy regardless of what body type they prefer. No one particular view gets more bad “press” than the other, this site is full of people on both sides of the fence. 🙂

            @Alias-I don’t think the majority of the posters here prefer curvy/full figured over thin/slim, I just think they prefer healthy more, and not all the thin/slim girls presented here are healthy(just as not all the nonslim gals are healthy too, don’t want people to think I believe only the slim gals can be unhealthy 😛 ), but unfortunately the bad comments stand out more than the good comments, to some it will look like skinny bias is more than full bias, and to some it will be the opposite(from my perspective, it seems the nonslim get more mud flung at them, but I think that’s mainly because I venture on more posts about fuller gals than I do on posts about slimmer gals, I just think it depends on which articles you look at more 😛 ). Yea, they could put their view a little better, I’m with you guys on this, it is getting a little old to see every slim girl called anorexic, just as it gets a little old to see every nonslim girl get called fat, regardless if they are unhealthy or not, we just can’t say for sure why a person is the way they are, just say they look unhealthy at their size and leave the insults in your head, please?

            “When last time I checked, the Victoria’s Secret models were (and still are) the hottest things on the planet.”
            Eh, some are, some aren’t, I don’t think they are the end-all, be-all of “hot” 😛

            “And I do think the Skinny Website are more inclined towards the hot, tight bodied women, which is more my taste so I thought I would let other’s who agree with me know that there is another place where they can express their opinion on the skinny beauties.”
            I agree with this, they do prefer the skinny beauties and those that like them at that site, I was just disagreeing with you stating they are more accepting of different views, when they aren’t, they are more accepting of the skinny beauty view and those that like and tend to degrade the non-skinny beauties and those that like them 😛

            I just wish all the insults would be toned down at the least. What is it, exactly, about this particular subject that prompts people to be so hateful with the presentation of their views? I think in my case, when I did present a more insulting and nasty view, it was because I didn’t think how much my comments would impact people and there was also the fact that I am anonymous on here and don’t have to actually look the person I’m being so nasty towards in the eye. But I’ve learned I am wrong, my comments do in fact hurt people, and being anonymous is no excuse to keep it up. Just because I don’t see the person’s pain doesn’t mean it isn’t real, and I sincerely apologize for my nasty comments in the past. I’m still going to present my opinion on this, but I will try to be more thoughtful about it.

            OK, sorry for the ramble, but I hope there’s a point in there somewhere 😛

          • DT

            Hey Instant… you certainly have a lot to say these days…. go get them girl !!

            I actually think she looks very nice and thin ( and so happy ) from the waist up…. but her legs are a little thick compared to the upper body for my preference.. you don’t see it as much in all black ( duh !!! ) . If she was all proportionate, many would complain anorexia, but I waqnt to see the total look……

  • machmalow

    I’ve never liked her face, but she has a GREAAAT body 🙂 so slim !!

  • Amanda

    It is because over half of the population of The Unites States is overweight. So anytime there is a thin girl they accuse her of an eating disorder or not eating enough and say they should gain weight. What if they don’t have an eating disorder? What if they have a thin body type and they don’t eat disgusting like the average American? American people and their eating habits disgust me beyond belief. Shenae looks great by the way.

    • alisa

      i agree

    • lacey

      i couldnt agree with you more!

    • b

      I’m so sick of this inflammatory critique which fails to recognize that it’s not just an American problem. “American people and their eating habits” –first of all, not all Americans eat like that. Second, everyone acts like obesity and problems with being overweight are unique to the United States. Wrong. The World Health Organization–even 10 years ago–deemed this a global endemic. Here’s a sample of some statistics. Now get over yourself.

      Great Britain: 75% overweight. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19114067/
      U.S.: 66% http://win.niddk.nih.gov/statistics/
      France: 40% overweight. Hardly a small number. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/03/world/europe/03iht-obese.html
      China: 25% http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/113857.php

      • Sam

        OK, but US has more OBESE people than any other country in the world. The overweight people in UK are much smaller than the overweight people in the US, that matters a lot. UK has many “slightly overweight” people, which is not that bad.
        I say all these and I am American, but seriously, I visited Europe and you just can’t compare, people in US are much bigger.

        • scarlett

          I must agree with B.
          As i said i do find her very thin but in this pictures she looks like she probably is naturally thin BUT pictures doesnt often show reality because of proportions. 7 months ago I saw Gemma Ward at LAX and when I first saw here before recognizing her i felt sorry for her because I thought she was some girl (or boy) recovering from chemotherapy (she had very very short hair, and she was wearing a brown sweater short dress and looking extremely thin) She was carrying a LV oversized bag and a teddy bear, and i was like aww poor little (rich haha) child. Than my friend told me she was gemma ward and 2 girls asked her to sign their purses, so yes she was Gemma Ward.
          May be she doesnt try to be that thin but than she should make an effort to gain some weight.
          Because it is true women come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but is not about country weight standards, is about an adult looking like a child, that can´t be healthy in any country no matter which possition it occupies on the obessity charts.

          So thats why i agree with B

          • Casey

            Scarlett, you said:

            “May be she doesnt try to be that thin but than she should make an effort to gain some weight.”

            I say, why? I agree with you in terms of Gemma Ward, but why should someone like Shenae gain weight when she seems healthy and functional at the weight she is currently at? Gaining weight does not always mean increased health for thin women. In fact, telling thin women to gain weight can sometimes make them resort to unhealthy measures in order to achieve that goal (after all, they are thin for a reason, meaning they can’t gain weight normally and eating normal food, so they have to resort to unhealthy food to gain enough caloric intake to gain weight).

            You also said,

            “Because it is true women come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but is not about country weight standards, is about an adult looking like a child, that can´t be healthy in any country ”

            Looking like a child is YOUR opinion of thin women. I don’t think Shenae looks like a child, or even Gemma Ward for that matter. They look like thin women. By your standards, you would think that I was also someone who looked like a child, but I can assure you I am in exceptional health. So yes, it CAN be healthy.

          • scarlett

            Casey =) when i said this “May be she doesnt try to be that thin but than she should make an effort to gain some weight.” I was still talking about Gemma Ward not Shanae Grimes. And i Do think she should do that, eating healthy food not mcdonlds ofcourse.
            I am also a thin girl, a year ago I was completely healthy but because of a personal decission i decided that i wanted to gain some weight, so in order to do that I went to a doctor (the one who studies the body glands im not sure what the name is in english endocrinologist or something like that) And with a nutricionist. The nutricionist show me that even thought i was feeling good during the day with my calorie intake and i wasn´t starving at all it was a bit low considering my age and height. The doctor in the other hand told me that even though i was healthy it was a god decision to visit him because a woman who eats the proper amount of calories should have a BMI above 20 despite the body shape, and when that is not the case it can be for a variety of medical reasons one of mines was polycystic ovaries and high prolactine levels what was giving me a childish shape.

            I clearly didn´t mean as an offense the “childish like shape” thing, no matter if your womanly body type is the “ruler” or even a bit “boyish” there should be a difference in the shape compared to a 10 year old slim girl, if theres not and you are eating healthy then there is a problem and you should go to the doctor.

            With healthy eating habits there is no such a thing as naturally over or under weght person (despite body shapes) if this happens really really look after your health and find medical attention.

          • Casey

            Sorry for jumping on you Scarlett, I didn’t realize what you meant about looking like a child. Many people on these threads like to use that phrase in sort of a derogatory way. I kind of agree with you regarding there being a medical reason for not being able to gain weight or lose weight; after all, these things are genetic variations in our population and therefore must have a biological manifestation. I don’t necessarily agree with the idea of having to change it unless you are nutrient-deficient or at risk of heart disease…etc.

            I’ve been checked for a lot of things and everything came up normal so my doctor told me to just to try to up my calorie intake in a healthy way. I’ve never heard of prolactine levels so I doubt I’ve been checked for that, but I will look into it. It wouldn’t hurt for me to gain 10 pounds, even if it’s just for vanity. 😛

      • Aka

        That is quite hilarious what you say there, B. You give different sources for each country, those are different studies. It is a fact that US has the highest obesity rate and overweight rate, YES, it is a global problem, but pleaseeee don’t try to convince anyone that UK has more overweight people than US. This is a good map, it shows clearly how it is:

          blah blah blah. youre welcome for wwII.

          • Aka

            Huh? “youre welcome for wwII”? What does that mean?
            You don’t even know where I’m from… and it’s a horrible thing to say anyway.

          • Gigi

            it means that america helped out europe during wwII. i was saying “youre welcome” as a response to all the america bashing (not saying that you specifically were bashing america; i was responding to it in general). how is that “horrible”?

          • Aka

            I know what it means, it just sounded way too out there to be true and I don’t see how it applies since I am not European.
            Why it is horrible? Because you personally had no involvement in WWII and you can not say “You’re welcome”, since you, personally, did not help me in or any country in any way.
            I find it absurd that I have to explain this, actually… and more absurd that you would say such a thing on a celebrity site, with no connection whatsoever.
            You sound beyond conceited.

          • Gigi

            haha oh so you knew what that meant? isthat why you asked “what does that mean”? and there was nothing horrible about it. you are WAY too sensitive if you were offended that i said “youre welcome” even though i obviously didnt have anything personal to do with it. no duh i didnt have any personal involvement, i meant it hyperbolically for humorous purposes but obviously that went over your head. go get some. the only bad thing i did was assuming that you were european (excuse me for that reprehensible error on my part). and thanks for informing me that ww2 isnt relevant to this website. please, give me a minute to let this colossal shock sink in.

        • Kae

          What I would like to know is why people always bring up America when it comes to obesity? Fact is, obesity rates are rising in most industrialized societies because of our addictions to excess. It’s about the individual, not the countries. You either decide to live a healthy lifestyle or you don’t.

          I wish people would stop making this topic political or geographical.

      • Gigi

        thank you, thank you, thank you. im not the most patriotic person in the world but people who act like fat people are exclusive to america are self righteous, ignorant, and they need to get over themselves.

        • Gigi

          i forgot to add that i think shenea looks fantastic. she looks healthy, thin and gorgeous.

      • friendlyme

        I am American, too. The problem is all over the world, it’s true, it’s not just our problem.
        But your statistics are not correct, we are, sadly, the biggest nation in the world. UK is lower than us, all the data I read said the same thing.

  • b

    It’s not that you sound bitchy, it’s just that it’s unhealthy and impractical to strive to completely minimize your hips/strive to achieve the body of a young girl. Where are her hips? That’s not good. Your head shouldn’t be larger than your waist. When looking at these pics I think “If she swallowed her head, would her stomach bulge?” Also, the thighs and arms shouldn’t be the same size, nor should the head and thighs be equal. More proportions: her shoulders are at least 2x larger than her hips…that doesn’t look right.

    • alisa

      wow how naive…… not every woman gains weight in their hips and some body types include wider shoulders

      • psycho

        Right? I’m overweight, and my shoulders are still wider than my hips!

      • b

        You’re naive if you think that was my point.

    • xo

      SHE IS A YOUNG GIRL?!? wtf. she looks like the naturally thin type.. doubt she works too hard at it.. just sayin.

      • Shena

        Exactly… when I was her age I was her size or a little smaller. I hardly worked out and ate whatever I wanted and still remained that size. Lol, now its a different story… But most people I know around her age are that slim and perfectly healthy.

  • Amy

    I agree that is kinda of a obssession in american people to say that thin girls = anorexic girls/girls with eating disorder because the avarage american people are really so fat that they’re known in the rest of the world for being SO FAT… Also, I thinks she is too skinny. And about the soulders being 2x bigger than the hips… that genetical, it’s called, people with large shoulders!

  • Alias

    Love her, she looks hot!

  • Anna

    I wonder how tall she is? Versus do you know her height? also what would her BMI be?

    • Versus

      Shenae is 5’3” / 160 cm. I can’t estimate her BMI, I don’t want to say something off.
      I also agree that her small bust is making her look thinner, she doesn’t look unnaturally thin to me.

  • Lucy

    She looks great and I love her boots & hair! 🙂

  • steph

    I think she looks really pretty, and I don’t know… I think she looks skinnier as well because of her boobs- or lack of. She looks good, I think that she is actually naturally thin…
    With the addition of Hollywood’s excersize requirement…
    I don’t think she’s one of the anorexically emaciated girls. She’s a naturally petite woman who probably devotes a lot of time to excersize.

  • georgette

    she has the cutest face, and i love the haircut. but her body… it’s kinda boyish… narrow hips, no bootie, wide waist… not my fav boydtype. yet as i said bf… BEAUTIFUL FACE!!

  • Lola

    She would look better minus the briefcase and that terrible hair.

  • Lola

    She would look better minus the briefcase and that terrible hair color.

  • bev

    her new hair looks soooo much better! no more ratty long !

  • Mishka

    I didn´t like her at first, but now with this color and hair cut she looks amaizing! I think she is finding her style

  • i think her body is great and i think it’s crazy for people to assume just because a woman is thin, especially in hollywood, she’s has an eating disorder. can’t she be just naturally thin? so i don’t think she needs to change anything about her body and i’m glad she’s not one of those people getting plastic surgery to achieve that perfect look.

  • jess

    I love her style!!! Whoever said brown and black doesn’t go together?? And I love her hair cut too, I think it suits her more than the long, it gives her a bit more personality.

  • lola

    To me she’s just a naturally skinny girl…I think she looks super cute

  • Juliette

    Don’t know who she is, but I think she looks awesome.

  • keri

    i wish i had her body!

  • katkelly

    cute, she reminds me of finola hughes with the shorter hair. MUCH improved!

  • j

    She looks amazing. Love her hair and body.

  • Elle

    @ alias
    Is this the same Alias on skinnygossip? 😛

  • Black Essence

    I’m sure that’s her natural weight (I know a number of women like her), but to speak honestly….I would hate to be shaped like a boy. Don’t get me wrong, I mean no insult…but no hips, no boobs, no booty…nothing.

      psh try being shaped like a boy (no hips/boobs/ass) but also being 30lbs overweight.
      there are worse things in life than possessing this girls body.
      🙂

        LOL true, true. LOL

    • i don’t see her shape looking like a boy. i see a woman.

  • Alias

    @Elle you bet it is 😉

      small world ;P

    Such a cheap looking outfit.

    I think people should compare this pic, with the one of Jaime King to realise the difference between natural skinny and starving skinny.

    Shenae – has muscle on her thighs (which are bigger then her calves), her arms have a little bit of meat on them, her face doesn’t look aged, her neckline is soft. She is thin, with narrow hips, but you don’t see any bone sticking out painfully.

    Jaime – her arms are bone and skin, her thighs have that curve in at the middle showing muscle wasting, and they’re smaller then her calves, her face is aged by decades, her neck shows every sinew and tendon, her jaw is sharp.

    • Kae

      Agreed…there is a difference. I think Shenae looks perfectly healthy. It’s not my preferred body type, but she looks fine. Jaime, on the other hand, concerns me.

  • Susan

    I’ve always thought of her as gorgeous. She is. Beautiful from head to toes.

  • Kt

    i think shes stunning, i personally like a slightly thicker build but she looks healthy, cute and oh so pretty!

  • liv

    I’m generally not a fan but i have to say she looks stunning here!

    “You can’t have an opinion without either being fat or anorexic or jealous. I’m sure somebody here has managed to have been accused of being all three.”

    Whoever said that is 100% right.

    But anyway, I wanted to post on this thread in regards to the comments saying that Americans think that the majority of skinny girls have eating disorders or are starving themselves.

    I don’t think it’s a unique thing to Americans, nor do I think it has to do with being American or American diet. After all, most celebrities are American and have a strong fan base in America which means that someone is supporting all of the these thin girls.

    Based on personal experience as a thin girl, I don’t think people bigger than me are always jealous of my size. I think it’s mainly because they don’t understand that it’s possible to struggle to GAIN weight just as much as some people struggle to LOSE weight. Not many people are naturally thin/underweight. That decreases the chances they’re going to have a friend or relative who will be struggling to gain weight, and they’ll never see that it’s indeed a struggle. I’ve been trying to gain 10 pounds for years now. The best I got was 5 pounds on a 2700 calorie diet combined with lots of protein drinks and weight training. People who don’t know me don’t know I go through that. They assume my metabolism is similar to theirs and that if I ate normally, I would gain weight, and therefore I must be starving myself to stay thin.

    So it’s not because they’re fat Americans. It’s because they realize that if they eat a cheesecake, it will show, and because that’s true for 90% of people, people tend to forget the exceptions. It’s like a familarity bias.

    • Kt

      best comment i’ve ever seen on this site 🙂

    • BlackEssence

      I have to agree…I have a handful of friends that are trying to gain, and the struggle can be just as taxing. One, in HS, she use to wear three pairs of pants just to have a bit of curve. Another, we also work together, dropped even more weight after having her baby girl and is miserable about it. She is 5’11 and 120lbs, her favorite weight = 150, but can’t seem to get past 125lbs. My sister-in-law is 6’1 (I know, tall) and 135 she’s hired a dietician and trainer to help her gain weight.

    • Instant

      That is so true Casey, thank you for reminding us of this 🙂

      • Casey

        You are welcome Instant. 🙂

        • scarlett

          Yes no problem casey i didnt feel it personal. I´ve seen how people like to say nasty stuff about other people bodies in this site =)

    • scarlett

      Casey on this comment i do agree with you cause i also struggle to gain weight but really, go check yourself may be is something with your prolactine levels that is very common but not very easy to diagnose, you need a lot of studies and stuff. That is my advice cause i know how it feels to be eating 2700 calories and gaining no weight at all, but that is not as normal as it sound for us thin girls. Something is not working right with our bodies.
      The same as overweight people who cant drop a pound even if they are eating healthier. of course that is because of their slow metabolism but here must be a reason why is sooo slow
      Im just saying weight (under or over) is a medical issue and should be trated even if you feel good

  • Lisa

    I don’t look the boots and the bag, it’s too big. She should have worn up to the knee black suede boots with a heel and a small envelop bag in any happy colour, to spice it up. Petite body, but yeh.. that prob how she is…

  • scarlett

    I think she is naturally thin, its shows.
    Im thin too, and i dont know if thats because im latin but i do like better the well rounded butts. Its funny because ive heard americans say that kate hudson has a fat ass and i think her ass is perfect, is it something with the culture??
    My ass is rounded and i think in the united states people would call it a fat ass but here im considered pretty thin haha, i wish could weight more.

    that is my site just to show you the the perpective in latin america

  • b

    My point wasn’t that she’s anorexic, but I’m surprised at the backlash. Have you all forgotten how 90210 producers instructed she and Jessica Stroup to gain weight? They got into some ridiculous weight loss war. She was very, very thin. She looks beautiful here, but a little google searching will show you that she’s not normally this light. THAT’S my point. I think she looked fine the way she was 10lbs heavier. She still looks beautiful here. I just think it too bad that she feels compelled to lose unnecessary weight.

  • Mike

    Wow!
    I tried to read everything that everybody said, you girls have a lot to talk about these issues 🙂

    So, women are more passionate/worried/serious about what other women think than what men think.

    Well this will be my second request today, but can the owner of the site make a category about this kind of informations, so guys would learn 🙂

    I guess I like this site

  • Miranda

    She’s so tiny and cute.

  • Natalie

    wow i’m so having her figure..oO
    No breasts, tiny upper body and quite slim but normal short legs 😀
    I really like it on her, not quite sure about me^^

    She looks awesome here, love her hair and she’s just so cute.

    word@ christina, I’m also from Europe and loads of girls here are what you call “slim” or even “skinny”. It’s not that they aren’t, they do have a great body but I guess in the States people tend to do much more sports so I’m not quite sure if it’s because of habits…

    but I think you already have disussed it quite a lot so I’ll keep my mouth shut 😀

  • neatlybroken

    I think that she’s naturally thin, she looks good here. She was always very thin when she played on Degrassi, sometimes too thin. This is her in late 2007 on TRL http://shenaegrimesonline.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=482&fullsize=1

  • eve from germany =)

    hey guys, i’ve read your conversation it was very interesting!!
    in my mind shenae looks very great und her body is very nice..she doesn’t look unhealty, look at her hair und face- everything’s great!
    in the past (when 90210 started) shenae and jessica stroup were veeeeeery thin- ugly thin! but now shenae is at a perfect weight and looks soo good- im jealous!
    and by the way… i like skinnyvscurvy more than the other sites (theskinnywebsite), because skinnyvscurvy is very objective and the commentors aren’t so “rude”…

    i hope i’ve choosen the right words..my english isn’t the best ^^

    xoxo

    She looks great. Her shorter hair makes her look more mature.

  • Banksy
