"Help, I'm falling and I can't get up..."

I'm really really tired right now from teaching what is normally a semester-long graduate course in just six (very long) days. But I don't think it's just tiredness that's making the models in these pictures look all crooked.

Is it?

Is it just me, or does someone need to explain to these poor women how to stand up straight -- or draw in a little bookcase or column or something for them to lean on?

Looking at these photos makes me wonder whether I would have to stand like this in order to look this good in these shirts. Because honestly, I don't think it looks very comfortable.

Sassy, maybe.

But not comfortable. And once you look at a whole bunch of them all together like this? Really, I think it's just more weird than anything else. Seriously: who stands or moves like this ever? Am I just too tired to get this?

Now that you mention it, I am getting a little sea sick.

Oh, it's the "broken down doll" thing that is all the rage.

No worries - I'm sure the top will be fine in "real life." It's just that the model is trying to escape her "commercial" bounds.

Did I use the "" too much? :)

The blond looks like her left arm is paralyzed, the brunette is actually one shot - but photoshopped color makes the difference, and the black girl is essentially telling the blond girl - "anything you can do I can do better". And she does.

Looks like they really need a good chiropractor. I could recommend a couple.

I've been wondering where you were! Glad to know you're surviving, if just barely.

Oh no, I totally stand like this all the time.
As opposed to leaning over a chain link fence in Old Navy bermuda shorts, a Gogurt-stained tee, and a baseball hat yelling "Good eye!". Do you suppose the photographers find that attractive? Oh well. Guess my lopsided days are over.

Really. Who teaches posture to these models? Do they keep a chiropracter on contract at photo shoots?
