another wow

just reading Tim's Take on Bravo's PR site (he's answering viewer questions since there wasn't a new episode last night) and i came across this:

Q: Alison's model is PLUS SIZE??? Is it numerically literal now? Is anything over size 0 plus now?
A: Well, you're close. Alison's model Alexandra is probably a 6. Regrettably, it puts her in the "plus size" end of the runway equation.
six? ridiculous

"Zaftig" was the word he used at one point that killed me. I can understand his explanation that "plus size" was referring to modeling standards, but zaftig doesn't leave much room for interpretation.

that icon is... ...i love you ;)

yeah, he mentions that, but i don't feel any better about it:
"I called her "zaftig," and I want to explain my concern. The success of Alison’s recycling outfit was dependent upon a very cinched waist. That wasn’t going to happen on Alexandra, given the particulars of her figure."

I'm a 4, but I'm also 5 feet tall.

so add a foot to that and not even an inch on the hips...but maybe she just doesn't have a small waist? I certainly don't! haha
