Modeling On The Cheap
On May 12, the Houston Chronicle, in a blatant bid to get more skin on its pages, published a swimsuit preview called "Grin and Bare It." The story included a set of photographs showing how different swimsuit styles can help out different body types. "What's Your Type?" it asked, and then offered shots of different physiques, labeled as "straight" or "wide shoulders, large bust, small waist" or something similar.
Except the models for the different body types, on closer examination, looked a lot alike. We initially thought the Chron was trying to fool its readers, but we now see that it is a lot more convenient to change labels rather than models.
