Nice legs! Is that her sister?

When your knee joint is ticker than your thigh, its more worrying than attractive.

Not to be mean but that’s not a knee joint. It’s called a patela.
And her legs look naturally slim. People have different aesthetics about what they prefer or not. Not everyone has to agree her legs are too skinny. I think they look great.

im sorry but i cant reply to the comment below this one. some im referring to the pictures of “old alexa” – thats incredible… esp the first picture. she used to be a lot heavier… looking healthy and fit. she clearly has some kind of unhealthy relationship with her body. maybe anorexic, mabye bulimic. it makes me sad to look at her with her cigarette in her spider fingers.. ugh. weightloss gone too far

The patella is the little round bone in the front of the knee, not the complete knee joint. If that’s something, it’s the inner part of the femoral or tibial epyphisis. Don’t be so presumptuous.

Wow im kind of surprised you like them. I like Natasha Polys legs, hilary rhoda, karlie kloss those are enviable to me and what i stive for because they’re very slender but look toned and worked out. Im “underweight” and to get legs like alexa i would never be able to workout, they don’t look very long either. Would not want her legs ever.

It’s possible for apple body shapes to have extremely skinny legs at a healthy weight.

But Alexa is not an apple, she is a ruler and she simply lost too much weight for her frame.

Horrible legs? If i said that about someone with chubby legs it wouldn`t been accepted, but when it comes to skinny girls all is allowed! LOVE AND FLAUNT YOUR SKINNY LEGS GIRLS!!! I really like her legs, they`re elegant and feminine. What I don’t like is the cigarette!

La la la la

Meh. I disagree. I think if someone had super fat legs that people wouldn’t jump on you for saying they’re horrible. Alexa has super skinny legs so using such an extreme adjective doesn’t seem out of place. I think they’re awful too and she looks like a starving child, and just looks sick. I don’t think people who look or are sick should flaunt it.

I know some women naturally gain more in the upper body than in the the lower one.
I am an apple. I have average legs. As far as I can remember they have always looked the same irrespective of my weight/loss gain.
However I don’t think that it is her natural weight. I know it is possible but she looks frail to me.

If this girl is just naturally this skinny, I don’t want to be mean and say what I really think. I don’t know who this is and what her deal is, but to me, her legs look like the girls I’ve known who are anorexic. It’s sad to see a body like this, because it doesn’t look healthy and natural. She looks frail and sick.

“she loves that shes so skinny ,she shows her legs all the time.”

Agreed! I don’t think that she has anorexia, i.e. a mental disorder, but rather starves herself to emphasise her status as a fashion icon (or whatever she’s famous for).

Mel

Well by definition, if this girl likes to starve herself she has an eating disorder which is a mental disorder. Considering I cant know if she still gets her period, her diagnosis would be Eating Disorder NOS (not other wise specified) according to DSM IV.

I know the comments here are what most people say behind or in front of me and I have endured many changes over the years. After 30, and countless money went into weight gain clinic trails and the unsustainable weight gain. I am tired of fighting my frame and size.

All you’ve done is substitute the word thin/skinny with scrawny. It implies the same point. I maintain my remarks about people who can be this “scrawny” naturally, underweight even. More to the fact, my mother has consistently become more and more “scrawny” as she ages, and drops weight when under stress or grief. I am not on any high horse. What exactly is it about claiming that some are naturally this way be categorized as speaking in a condescending way?

Darkred

And my problem is that no one seems to care if she truly has a problem here. I only read “eww” “ugly” or “i am happy to not look so scrawny”. I see she might have a problem, but whats going on here is body shaming. Double standards…[email protected] hope you dont get too offended, people can be ignorant sometimes. I bet you look beautiful just the way you are!

I am not offended because I have moved pass that now and I am comfortable and secure with myself. Me, my sister, my dad, my mom are all like Alexa’s built. She has the same kind of legs as my sister who is 5’9 with slight skin difference and body composition. I happen to be one of those naturally really skinny girl with a thyroid problem on going since birth. It’s ok, thank you guys, i can understand that most people find this disturbing.

carriee
Guest

I do however feel the need to cover up and that is personal choice because I think it draws bad attention. I normally wear really thick leggings and then layer them to appear fuller. My wrist is about 4’5” on a 5’8 person. But then again I am half Thai and I been around Asian countries a lot and a quite amount of girls and women happen to be this naturally thin. Isn’t Alexa part Chinese?

You said that, ‘I think as women 5’7 and over, we should be at least 120, not 98, 93, 104 or 106′ – in essence, judging me – I mentioned that I am 5’ 7″… Read more »

We are close in frame I’m guessing…….BUT, I agree, this BMI and all this crap…………I mean it has it’s place, but, if you eat normally for you, have no health concerns, and exercise regularly, I mean, we are what we are.

I just have a question….and you can answer if you like…..if there is a thyroid problem, does the medicine not fix it? Are you not at your ‘natural’ weight even after medicine? is the problem not resolved? just curious really…..and if you/your thyroid is fixed w/ the med., is it your weight still too low for your liking? I too know how the digestive system can feel stressed from too much eating, but mine was never on purpose, I just joined a gym w/ my family, and started lifting heavy b/c……….IDK just b/c the machines were there.

@ Carriee I have never been as small as you but I can relate because I was only a 108 pounds for over ten years and in my culture, that is smaller than some 12 year olds! I did the protein shake thing and that gets old fast plus it’s not healthy for the long term to have too much protein. So anyway I ended up gaining the weight I wanted by drinking shakes made with heavy cream which is 51 calories a tablespoon. If you drink the following recipe at least once a day I am certain you will… Read more »

Also I forgot to add that the best thing about that weight gain shake recipe I shared is that it doesn’t add pounds in the form of fat. It makes you solid. I didn’t get any of the weight on my stomach. I read somewhere that eating almonds actually burns belly fat too.

I also love the wide forehead of Tyra Banks, and the wide forehead and big eyes and heart shaped face of Gemma Ward, and her extreme thinness she used to possess.

Also, dark meat chicken, turkey, whole duck, lamb, w/ skin or without, salmon – are all high calorie. Like 6 oz of white meat chicken breast is only 120 calories….all that cutting and chewing is so tiring for very few calories…….that’s why I made the switch to high calorie game meats, and dark meat poultry, plus essential fatty acids. All proteins are acid, but you can’t really avoid that – the important thing is balance w/ alkaline vegetables and fruits and other alkaline foods. Tofu is easy to eat, you can eat a lot of it w/out much effort, also.

by the way, the pic is me a year ago with the immense weight gain through clinical help, 112 pounds, and I had b❆❆bs that’s slightly bigger than a cup. I think without the evil thyroid problem I should be 108 like my sister who is 5’9. To maintain 95 right now, I been eating 80 grams of protein in all shapes and forms. So much carbs and fats and everything adds up to about 4000-4800 calories a day. It didn’t use to take this much but the more I eat, the more body wants in order to sustain what… Read more »

You know what, there are high calorie foods that are easier to digest than some. Alkaline forming foods are easier to digest than acid forming ones. High calorie alkaline foods are wild rice, Japonica rice (Japanese rice), almond butter, vegetable spreads, olive oil, plantains, avocado (guacamole), sweet potatoes dripping w/ butter, or the vegetable spread – a large one can have 600 calories, Google ‘sweet potato calories 1 oz’ – I need calories in dense form too b/c I can’t digest a lot of stuff, so what I can digest, I scoop up in bulk.

Beyonce? Kelly Brook? Alicia Keys? All 3 Kardashians? Christina Aguilera? Minka Kelly? Even Barbara Palvin and Erin Heatherton get comments suggesting their legs are too chunky for modeling!

Anyone over size 6 is told to “tone up” because they can’t be healthy but Alexa chain smokes and does drugs and is apparently above criticism because we must adore all skinny models!

I agree Mara, if anything there are far more critical comments on this site of women with anything above stick-thin legs than there are of women with skinny legs. So given that there are plenty of girls on here who feel they can bag out Beyonce, Mischa Barton, Minka Kelly etc for having ‘fat, disgusting legs’ that they should ‘cover up’, I’m going to say that I think Alexa’s legs are unattractive and nothing at all to aspire too.

Some of these comments are way too harsh – ‘disgusting’, ‘she should cover up’, etc? I definitely think she’s too thin, but I don’t think she’s disgusting. If I had her body shape (at this low weight), I would probably not see my legs as a feature to highlight like she so often does – but that’s up to her. I haven’t really followed her career, but to me she has always looked very thin and quite frail – I don’t find her appealing face or body-wise and I think she may possibly have an unhealthy approach to food, but… Read more »

yes, saying that someone looks disgusting is always too harsh. you just shouldn’t do that.

but knowing that she used to be heavier.. and, at least to me, she doesn’t look really healthy anymore. not only body-wise, but face-wise aswell. so it’s concerning, but not disgusting

Agree. Body-shaming people like that is never okay.
She doesn’t look what I would consider ideal, but “disgusting” is an inappropriate exaggeration. People need to grow up and consider how hurtful their comments can be to anyone with a similar body type reading them.
You wouldn’t call her disgusting if you knew she had a terminal illness or metabolic disfunction causing her to look that way. Just because you *assume* her weight loss is self-induced and setting a bad example or something, harsh words are okay? Um, no.

Please tell me you are joking right? I can’t quite believe what I am reading here. Yourself and e-rica have so many times made nasty snide body shaming comments about women on this site using words like “masculine” and “ugly” before. I can’t believe what an utter hypocrite you are.

I’ve been to Auschwitz year ago, now I’m reminded of this trip…..the photos of her stick legs correspond with those of holocaust victims.
Disturbing…especially when these pics scream “eating disorder”…and as for her seemingly healthy hair – well, special treatments, keratin and other can prolong the hair quality…
when I’ve began recovering from ED my hair started falling out and growing fresh after I’ve been 7 months through, at the heights of anorexia, severely malnourished, I still got luscious locks – it’s a delayed process that will catch up on her eventually.

Erica

I’m sorry about your ED and I’m glad to hear you are recovering – but comparing Alexa to Holocaust victims is extremely insensitive and quite ignorant, tbh! She’s very thin, yes, malnourished though? That’s debatable (and unlikely, imo) – but she is certainly not on the brink of death! She has very skinny legs, some people do, it doesn’t necessarily mean she’s starving!

I understand if you were turned off by the above commenter, though I do not think she said so with the aim of being hurtful. Sadly, when I saw her legs, I too thought (unintentionally)about the many photos I just saw (again) for Holocaust Memorial Day. I’m sad to say that bc I like Alexa, her style and even thinness in general (though I prefer skinny-fit), but really Erica…her legs…they look like somone who was forced to starve. Saying “it reminds me of” sounds like an unitentional comparison…though yes it is harsh but look at her legs…they’re more thin than… Read more »

C’mon there are really double standards on this site.. It’s ok to assume that a chubbier person is constantly eating and thus chubby. But not that a skinny person is not eating? We know that she was not alway that thin.. same with emma stone. They do follow at least some kind of diet. And actually I agree.. she seems like someone who doesn’t eat enough.. which is a shame.. considering there are people who have no other option than to starve And for most of people this thinness is not normal.. aswell as for most people obesity is not… Read more »

Ramona, i disagree with your idea of a double standard. It is certainly NOT the same to compare Alexa Chung to a starving concentration camp victim as it is to a chubby girl who is accused of eating a few too many cookies.

Saying this woman looks like she’s been forced to starve and comparing her to the genocide of millions of helpless people during the holocaust…one of the most abominable periods of 20th century history is ignorant, disgusting, and unacceptable on so many levels.

Mary, please check yourself…it is NOT ignorant to make the comment “her legs look like someone who was forced to starve”…bc they do look like that. An informed person who understands semantics and pragmatics of language can understand from reading my full quote that Im not saying she is starving herself nor that someone else is forcing her to starve. I thought it was clear that I was defending the prior commenters remark, which is an opinion and stated as such, without nastiness. It would not be incorrect to say that of many possible reasons this young girls legs are… Read more »

she’s too skinny. I know hollyood women want to weigh the size of a five year old boy but damn those are some chicken legs. When your above the age of 14, you she start taking some shape the way women are supposed to. even some skinny women still have curvy hips and thighs, but I guess If you want to be famous you should be stick skinny.

Actually not on this site. I mean some people called Emma Watson, or Blake Lively “heavy”, “too big”, or “chubby”.. and THIS is simply ridiculous.
Just to make it clear..I do know that being underweight doesn’t have to mean that someone is unhealthy. But with Alexa I’m seriously not sure about her health..

No, no, no. I mean when someone says about, hm, let’s say Melissa McCarthy, “She’s so unhealthy she must eat a ton and eat junk no- stop blah blah. She is so unhealthy, she’ll have a heart attack soon”. People hate comments like that. Soo why is it okay to assume Alexa doesn’t eat, and is on her death bed? Yeah just doesn’t make sense to me.

Well on the Melissa McCarthy thing I’m totally with you!

@Lc I have no problem calling Melissa overweight and similarly I have no issue calling Alexa underweight. Just like Melissa gained a lot (she was much smaller in Gilmore Girls) Alexa has lost a lot of weight, I see it especially her knees, wrist, jaw area. She smokes constantly and is on drugs too. Some girls like Karlie K you can tell are naturally thin, Alexa not so much. Likening her to a Holocaust victim is going too far though…

overreaction over her legs… check. They don’t look super unattractive to me. Perfection imo would be something like Doutzen Kroes’ legs, but i guess i’m really not up to SvC criticism level, since i can look at cellulite or Alexa’s bony knees without feeling uncomfortable at all. Biodiversity is fascinating, actually.

I feel the same about this sort of figure like I do with really overweight figures: I wonder how much they’re physically capable of doing. Can she do vigorous physical activivty (skiing, climbing, etc.) for any length of time? Somehow I just can’t believe this sort of body is capable of doing something like hiking with a heavy backpack like I like to do (but in all fiarness i’ve thought that about several overweight celebrities)

Ok let’s pretend Alexa is reading the comments on this blog – she would see some people like her figure while others suggest she’s too skinny. Do you think this would shock her? Alexa is a model. She lost at least 20 lbs and smokes cigarettes constantly to curb her appetite. Her behavior is dangerous; pointing out she does it is not. Additionally you should realize there are many pro-ana sites online that nearly worship Alexa and her figure, using her as “thinspiration” to fuel their own body obsessions – I find that a lot more troublesome.

Candy M.
Guest
Candy M.

She could definitely use the weight room. Im sure some people are naturally look like this, I’m about 5 lbs “underweight”, but i don’t think alexa is one. You just have to google her early pictures to see she was bit fuller, who do you think you’re kidding alexa. she’s known to do drugs, alcohol, cigarretes, her styles way overrated to and i find her quite annoying.

I actually find shapely/thicker legs to be more attractive on women, though that is simply a matter of opinion/personal preference. Yes, everyone has a different idea of what attractive is… but when someones health is in jeopardy to fit their personal ideal of what attractive is – clearly there is a problem. Health should be what is most important, and clearly she has some type of disorder in regards to her eating habits. Prior she was slim, but slim in a way that looked as if it came natural to her. Now, its clear this isnt her natural state.

Agreed! I never gotten the attraction towards thin legs either I get long legs but overly thin legs just isn’t attractive to me, but that seem like a minority opinion here because when there is a post on someone like say Beyoncé’s or whatever most people always rag on her legs yet I think her legs are perfectly fine so…but Alexa is looking thin I hope she is well personally I think she looks much better with a bit of more weight on especially facial wise.

Candy M.

Everyones ragging on alexas legs too. To me Beyonces legs aren’t good nor are alexas. Karlie Kloss has good legs, candice swanepoel has good legs, gisele has good legs. Alexas look like she couldn’t do one squat, she just looks plain weak and frail which is a major turn off to me.

No idea who she is, and therefore cannot say if she looks like she is embracing her body type and is healthy, so on and so on. I can only say that I think……..that being lean w/out having a good amount of muscle, is not attractive. I think she would look more attractive, in the body, if she took up weight lifting………and no, it doesn’t look like she lifts weight. But……..at least she’s not fat, so…………I guess, I find her somewhere in the middle of the attractiveness scale. Also, average as far as height, hair, face, etc.

Do I like her legs? No not really?

But are they disgusting? No.
Everyone needs to calm down. Is a thin girl on your computer screen THAT big of a deal? It’s her body, not yours. You don’t know if she’s healthy or not. Regardless if she is healthy or not you don’t need to call her legs disgusting. THAT itself is far more disgusting than any pair of legs could ever be.
