She's needs a intervention.

Because this is not okay.  

Yes, of course we all know she has an eating disorder. But, unlike Mary Kate and others who try to hide their struggles underneath yards of loose, figure hiding fabric, Posh seems content to advertise her thinification at every turn. I am not a specialist on eating disorders, but I know enough about anxiety induced control issues to know that this is not "fine."  Not even close.  

And she's using fashion to aid and assist this behavior. Also not okay. Someone at Rock and Republic, please...don't continue to facilitate this.  No, she doesn't need our judgement. She needs help.

Black panneling that concaves inward on the upper thigh. Because, you know, all upper thighs should ideally curve inward at your pubic bone. 

Alexander McQueen. Shame on you. This isn't an illusion. It's an allusion to a sad truth.

And the even sadder truth is that, unless her brain dead husband starts spending less time on the field and more time trying to get her the help she deserves, it will only get worse. Because Posh has just been replaced as the model for the Armani Underwear ad-campaign by none other than another (albeit this time, self-professed) anorexic Megan Fox.  

A lesser of two evils?

And some of you still want to give birth to and raise children in this society? 

You are allowed to procreate only if you have the kinds of kids who shun this type of marketing and instead watch good t.v. and movies.  Like "An Education."  Will be seeing it. In New York. On Saturday. With wine and Alice. Will report back with details.

Initial buzz is that it's AMAZING. A story about the kind of girl you should want your girls to be. Brave. Flawed. Smart. Redeeming.  And Carey Mulligan is definitely not Posh but is still beautiful and so poised.  
I will take poise over "Posh" any day.

Oh. As a P.S....

This is Posh when she was a healthy thin.  This is Megan Fox at 18.  Yes, these are examples of how weight loss can change you.  But in the case of the latter...I don't think the decreased intake of food is the only thing at "work" here. No one changes that much from 18 to 23. No one. Period.
