Karolina Kurkova is tall, vivacious and curvy and the all-around gorgeous lingerie model that makes million of dollars posing for photos in next too nothing for Victoria's Secret. But as she is not pin thin she has been ripped by some in the media as being "too fat" and they have slammed the way she looked recently in a bikini at a fashion show.
A report from the Los Angeles Times notes that some fashion critics have blasted model Karolina Kurkova for looking too fat in a bikini. Wait, what? Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova is being attacked by the Brazilian media for appearing too fat on the runway, the report notes. While that seems ridiculous many are now studying every inch of the models body in pictures both front and back that have been published on the Internet. A front look at the model is in the snap that is provided right from the runway during Sao Paolo fashion week in Sao Paolo, Brazil. She looks pretty good from that angle.
The media was ruthless and after the show during Sao Paulo's Fashion Week, a Brazilian paper noted that the leggy 5-foot-11 Kurkova "shocked" the audience when she appeared looking uncharacteristically chubby with "cellulite on her butt." Are they kidding? The Times has some detailed pictures of the scantily clad model here, there is no way she looks too fat to be in a bikini.
It is a sad fashion world we live in when someone with a body like that is criticized for being "too fat" and being judged for wearing a swimsuit on the runway.
