Says a friend of blogger Molly Knefel: "it's a combination of the camera, which adds weight to everyone, and the context she's in– on a red carpet full of abnormally tiny people, she certainly stands out." [True/Slant]
Anybody ever see the Rachel Bilson picture that was floating around a while back? She's with "normal" girls in swimsuits and her abnormal tinyness is remarkable.
It was striking. I saw it at a pretty body-unhappy time in my life and it was such a lightbulb moment. That the famous people in pictures just aren't like me. And that was okay.
I'll go look for it. It's such a clear demonstration of the "red carpet full of abnormally tiny people."
