  1. I don't. I'm confident in my OPINION. I will say that she does look healthier in this editorial. Which, I'm sure wasn't shot at the same time as the one she was too skinny in. I'm just guessing?

  3. She IS too thin. These were retouched really well. The bags under her eyes were nicely removed, her joint bones smoothed out, and a healthy glow to her skin.

    • totally agree with basement. i do professional retouching too and a lot of softening is often done to the bone structure. hard, sharp edges are usually rounded to make the picture more natural-looking. not very nice to look at skinny girls with bones the stick out in all places!

      that being said, fashion is fashion, and am totally loving this series!

    • It could have been, but it depends on the art director, editor, retouching house, etc. All I'm saying is don't be fooled by her shape. Models are retouched all the time to look less bony and poky, and less gaunt in the face.

      BTW, for the record, Numero does not have a large retouching budget, AT ALL.

        • Yes, a very established one. Retouched for Vogue Nippon and for Numero Paris, even. I know how they work.

          Love Anna's posing, but she is probably gaunt and far too skeletal in person. The camera makes you look thicker than you really are. There is a difference between being model-thin and being skin and bones. It has nothing to do with being used to seeing "European" and "American" physiques. She's gotten more skeletal as her career has progressed.

          In the second pic, notice her knees. They have been de-boned and most likely pushed in a bit. Sorry, thin is fine but I prefer girls with a couple more pounds, like Daria, Natalia, Anna J, Ali S and M, those types. Natasha Poly, Magdalena, Anna S… they are all far too skeletal for my tastes, even if they are very good at posing.

          • Ok. Go treat yourself to viewing the latest video of her. Tell me it's retouched too.
            You can find it on YouTube – search "Anna Selezneva Model Talks" and I'm sure you'll find it.

  5. i think she's gorgeous. and not too skinny. models are models for a reason.

  7. Models are skinny. Body builders are overly muscular. People on the biggest loser are fat.
    All extreme but we still watch them all.
    If you do not like it, do not come to these sites.
    If you are comfortable with who you are, then there is no need to complain.

    • That is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard.

      For one, there's a difference between being 'skinny' and being malnourished. You can be naturally skinny, but even if you have the fastest metabolism, you will not look gaunt in the face with no flesh on your arms. I should know, I grew up very, very thin.

      And being comfortable with who we are is not the point: These girls are KIDS! They shouldn't have to be starving themselves to the point of malnutrition. Like I said, thin models are one thing. Malnourished, starving models striving to get thinner and thinner are another. This industry grabs them, wastes them, then throws them out. It doesn't care about these girls.

      And frankly, if you're making excuses for why it's okay, then you don't either.

  9. she looks much better when she is clothed. she has such beautiful cheekbones and eyes, i hope to see more of her in the future, really.

  11. great ed! love the styling and she's great too. i love fashion, but i don't think she should be this skinny. it's simply not pretty. and it's a shame, cause she's beautiful. and this ed would have been better, if she look a little more normal.
