Grace Jones: ‘Size 0 is like the walking dead’

wenn32225835-680x1024 - Grace Jones: ‘Size 0 is like the walking dead’

On how models are too skinny these days:

I’m glad I’m not doing it now. I’d probably be dead. Everybody’s so skinny. Size 0 is like the walking dead. Not sexy at all.” She went on to add “When I modeled, I would normally be a model size 6, 8, though my shoulders are wide, it’s hard to make them fit into things. Now I can’t get into model sizes, because they’re really small.

… says the 69 year-old supermodel.

I think many models look healthy and normal.
This person, on the other hand, looks like a man.

woah…ouch. I don’t think she looks like a man at all. Androgyny is common in modeling, but saying she “looks like a man” is a little over the top.

its was the 70s and 80s when the look was key;
If she were styled differently for today (ie loose long curls and eyelashes, ultra browns and pouty lips) she would be stunning.

Rock and androgeny were king in this time for modelling, as was the aerobicized look.

She rocked the short hair. I hope that plucked eyebrow trend doesn’t come back, though (most of my eybrows luckily grew back after my teenage years :D). Too much make-up doesn’t suit her, I think she looks better with less. I can’t believe she’s 69, she looks about 20 years younger, wow!

Skinny shaming is just as bad as fat shaming BUT I’ve yet to see a size 0 model that doesn’t look at least a little bit underweight. I know people who are size 0s and look perfectly healthy, while thin obviously, but we’re talking about girls that are 5’1, 5’2 etc. To be 5’9 and up and a size 0 means that you have to have an impossibly small frame and not that much meat to cover it up. I don’t know, I’m not going to say they’re all necessarily unhealthy but it’s not my aesthetic either. Grace was amazing… Read more »

A 6 or 8 back then in the modelling world is probably a lot closer to a 2 or 4 today.
2 isnt that far from 0; grace was still very slim in her days

Yes, I agree, the sizes don’t completely correspond. And so Grace was probably more a 2 in today’s sizing. It kind of irritates me when models of the past make comments like these about current models. Reeks of ‘it was better in my day’. And doubly so for Grace as she was one of perhaps only two black models of the time and not one who was a conventional beauty, so she was an outlier. Things are much better now for black models, notwithstanding body shape, in number and being able to be just as ordinary as models of other… Read more »

Actually the difference isn’t that big. When I was at my slimmest I only wore vintage and 70s and 80s clothes were perfect for my figure. They weren’t considerably smaller, just cut for someone wih more waist definition. At measures 86-64-95 I wore 70s-80s 6-8 and the clothes fit like a glove. They are smaller than now, but mostly around the waist. On the other hand I have friends who have modeled in central Europe. They are really slim, slimmer than me at those measurements and are amazing-looking beautiful women who just are tall with really small frames. The catch… Read more »

She really was so unique looking. I miss models of these times.

She looks like a man. She is not beautiful.
