The case for non-beautiful models

Landsend

Quickly: Look at these two.

They are the reason I threw out the Land's End catalog that came in the mail today ("Late Summer 2011").

Do high-fashion models actually buy this brand?

They could have saved a lot of money and just paid ordinary folk on the upper East Coast (Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, etc.) to submit their home photos to be in the catalogue. Not that they're not beautiful. But the pretension has got to go.

Just a thought.
