Vintage Beauties: Betty Brosmer

smallest-waist - Vintage Beauties: Betty Brosmer

At request, the return of our Vintage Beauties posts!

Name: Betty Brosmer and later, Betty Weider

Also known as: ‘The girl with the impossible waist”

Height: 5’5” / 165 cm

Age today: 81

Occupation: pin-up model, author, trainer

Also known for:

  • being the co-founder of Shape Magazine
  • being the wife of famous bodybuilder Joe Weider

Before the age of photo editing, Betty stood out with her unique proportions depicting an hourglass shape with an impossible waist, measuring only 18 inches / 46 cm. But although Betty’s shape was admired by many and the beautiful blonde had a great career as a pin-up model (and later as a trainer and author), there was a lot of speculation at the time (1950s-1960s) regarding the methods Betty used in order to achieve her hourglass shape. While some say that corset training played a role in transforming her body, others say that the model opted for a waist reduction surgery, a procedure that alters the shape of the ribcage (and moves internal organs in the process).

“Cinderella” Lily James: “I naturally have a really small waist”

464932950_101 - "Cinderella" Lily James: "I naturally have a really small waist"

A few weeks ago, after Disney released a few images from their new movie Cinderella, there was a lot of talk about Cinderella’s (Lily James) super tiny waist. Here’s what the 25 year-old actress has to say about the topic:

On having a naturally small waist:

“I naturally have a really small waist. And on top of that, I have a corset that was pulled me [within an] inch of my life … The skirt’s big and the corset pulls me in, and that’s the point. That’s the shape [costume designer] Sandy Powell created.”

On not being able to eat when she wore her costume:

“When [the corset] was on we would be on continuous days so we wouldn’t stop for lunch or a lovely tea like this—you’d be sort of eating on the move. In that case, I couldn’t untie the corset. So if you ate food it didn’t really digest properly and I’d be burping all afternoon in [Richard Madden]‘s face, and it was just really sort of unpleasant. I’d have soup so that I could still eat but it wouldn’t get stuck.”

On the controversy about her waist:

“I think it’s all very hypocritical, and they contradict themselves, and they’re drawing more attention to it. I think all that stuff’s so negative, and you’ve got to let it wash over your head. I’m so healthy. I’ve got hips and boobs and a bum and a small waist.”

On promoting a healthy body image:

“For girls growing up sometimes I think they get the wrong idea for what women should look like. And I think it’s so important to be healthy and confident and natural. And not put too much stress on trying to be thin—I don’t get the thin, thin thing at all. I’m actually finding it really hard not to eat right now.”

Kim Kardashian’s Photoshopped Instagram Pictures

article-2533997-1A6C595C00000578-587_634x611 - Kim Kardashian's Photoshopped Instagram Pictures

After the Miranda Kerr photoshopped Instagram pictures controversy a while back , Kim Kardashian, who said that she slimmed down following the formula: ‘No carbs, workout and dedication!’ recently posted 2 very obviously photoshopped pictures of her figure on Instagram.

The proof: check out the way the door frame ‘bends’ in the background! This happens when the unskilled photoshopper uses the Liquify tool to make something smaller or narrower (in this case, her midsection) and distorts the surrounding objects in the process.

Kim Kardashian’s ‘Photoshopped’ Figure in Kanye’s New Video

Untitled-4 - Kim Kardashian's 'Photoshopped' Figure in Kanye's New Video

Kim Kardashian is a fan of Photoshop, as we’ve seen before here or here. This week, Kim is in the middle of yet another ‘airbrushing controversy’, as her figure (and especially her middle area) in the new video from Kanye West (where she appears topless) looks considerably slimmer and super flat. More details from Hollywood Life:

Kim’s post-baby body looked so amazing in Kanye’s ‘Bound 2′ that it left fans wondering if her figure was digitally enhanced for the music video. Now Kim is fighting back against the rumors, saying her body in the video is 100 percent natural, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Kim Kardashian, 33, has lost almost 50 pounds since giving birth, and she looks slimmer than ever in her topless appearance in Kanye West‘s “Bound 2″ video, which was released on Nov. 19. Kim may look to good to be true, but she worked hard for her rocking body and didn’t have any help from the digital editing team, a source close to the reality star tells HollywoodLife.com.

Believe it or not, Kim’s body really does look as beautiful in real life as it does in Kanye’s new video, in which she is shown topless and straddling her future husband on a motorcycle.

“She wanted to get in shape before filming,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Kanye had been begging her for a while to do something with him. She is not photoshopped!”

Kim told People magazine she lost 43 pounds between June and November. “This was the biggest challenge of my life, and I still have some to go, but I feel so accomplished that I did this,” she said.

Kim slimmed down by following the Atkins diet, eating grilled salmon, cheese omelets and grilled chicken, while steering clear of carbs and alcohol. She also takes classes at Barry’s Bootcamp and Pilates Plus to stay in shape and keep her curves.
