Kate Moss & The Boner for Boniness Effect

While there are many men who currently maintain that a full-figured–or at least mildly curvaceous–woman is their preference, those who are honest with themselves know that they truly prefer the emaciated, classic look of mid-90s, heroin chic Kate Moss. Her protruding hips, sunken in cheek bones and concave stomach combine to create a frail, yet vital look that no latently homosexual man seeking a boy’s body can resist.

Moss, who began her career at 14 after being seen at JFK Airport by the founder of Storm Model Management, Sarah Doukas, pioneered a revolution of thinness that had been negated up to that point by the likes of Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell. After her infamous Calvin Klein ad campaign in 1993, Moss single-handedly ushered in the era of heroin chic. So prominent was this new body image Moss heralded that even then president Bill Clinton felt the need to “weigh” in by commenting, “You do not need to glamorize addiction to sell clothes.” Though, of course, Moss has proved this statement wrong time and time again.

Her drug-friendly vibe only intensified post-90s, with a series of photos released in 2005 via the UK publication The Mirror that showed Moss to be snorting what appeared to be none other than cocaine. The scandal cost Moss the loss of three modeling contracts with H&M, Burberry and Chanel. Many speculated that her boyfriend at the time, musician Pete Doherty, was the influence to blame. Maybe that’s why Moss split from him in 2007. Nonetheless, her weakness for lead singers continued to prosper in 2011, after she married The Kills frontman Jamie Hince, one of many men who have lusted after Moss’ drug-addled physique. And so, Moss persists in emphasizing that the best diet to sustain allure is one that is delivered through a needle.
