The latest trend on Instagram is women posing their feet as ‘Barbie’ feet. Crazy. As if multiple implants and starving yourself isn’t quite enough, now models want feet that resemble Barbie. I have Ken feet complete with big toe nails that look like Brazil nuts.
Seriously, since Barbie’s toes point downward to accommodate her shoe collection,that’s the desired look. Forget about the damage that will be done to these ladies feet by standing on their tip toes for extended periods of time.
We all know the price you pay for modeling. The only time I walk on my tip toes is when my wife is mad at me and taking a nap. We need only take a glance at the wonderfully talented ballerinas who have been around for a while to see what kind of damage they sustain by staying on their tip toes for extended periods of time.
Bone fractures, stress fractures, back problems… The list goes on. I wish there weren’t so many pressures put on our young people in order to look a certain way to feel acceptable. It’s just wrong. When I think of the pressure I went through to attempt to look like David Hasselhoff. Ha!
