Lisa's picture.

This is NOT a slam at Lisa Robertson, I actually like her and generally enjoy the shows I've seen her host. Smile This is about her picture posted on the Community's first page.

Lisa always states she wears her skirts just at the knee because she doesn't like her knees or thighs. In the picture, there's lots of leg showing and I think her legs look pretty darn good. So, what gives? If my legs looked as good I'd be wearing short skirts and shorts all the time!

Opinions?

I think you are talking about the picture where she is sitting. Standing, that skirt probably is knee length. Lisa is a bit self deprecating but I would agree that her legs are not her best feature. I think we all have "parts" that we don't love and she's no different.

Yes, Debbie that's the pic I'm referring to. You're so right, we all have parts that we don't like. I just saw a film about models from the past and they mentioned something they didn't care for.

I didn't notice her knees being bruised, but now that you mention it I see it. Could it be from self-tanning? Self tanner looks darker on the elbows and knees, but this does look more like bruises. Geez, they should have air brushed that out!

Not the best picture I've seen.

That skirt probably does hit her just above or at the knee. It's not a short short skirt. We're women. We all have "issues" with particular parts of our bodies. Usually, no one else sees the "flaws" that we see. Sometimes they even become obsessions with us, so when we look in the mirror that is ALL we see. It's my thighs with me. To me, they are huge. I was saying as much to my daugther the other day and she just rolled her eyes at me and said "if your thighs were as big as you think they are, you wouldn't get them into slim leg jeans" even if you went up a size. I know she's right. They still look like thunder thighs to me......

I don't think it's a flattering pic of her. Her legs look like she hasn't got the tanner blended well and I don't like the hair.

Her arms are definitely much darker than her hands. Looks like she forgot to self tan her hands.

She does a lot of exercising. Probably slightly bruised from training. Camera/lighting/photograph, etc. etc. Sometimes slight imperfections show through.

I think she looks pretty darn good. Go to Walmart , then come home and take another look. Wink

I have heard her mention her thighs being heavy. I think mine are too heavy as well, but I am never going to have the pencil thin build- I wish for. {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

You'll find my heart at the Rainbow Bridge. :(

Yes, very darn good! Many of us (including me/myself) can only wish.............. BTW, which word is correct?: "me" or "myself"?

I think from her knees on up, her legs are a little chubby....BUT they still look way better than my own.

I agree with you, DebbieDD. I have to agree that her legs are not her best feature. And yes, we certainly do all have parts that we don't love.Smile

I'm guessing that all/most of those slim models have body "imperfections" in their own eyes/mind.

No one's perfect..I'd love to look as imperfect as Lisa though{#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}. I think she looks fabulous and fit.

What the he**ll are you all talking about???? {#emotions_dlg.ohmy}

Chubby W H A T ?? {#emotions_dlg.w00t}

I will take her knees/legs ANY day of the week.

You don't even have to go to Walmart. It doesn't make sense.

When I saw the picture, I thought she looked pretty darn good! Loved the skirt, the top, and those shoes...... and her legs are not bad.... by the way, I am not a big Lisa fan, but I thought this was such a cute picture of her.. Who does have perfect legs???? Name one.

I think her legs are one of her best features. It all depends on one's standard of beauty which may have a lot to do with cultural standards of beauty. Lisa's thighs are thick and very toned due to all her exercise, which is ideal IMHO. In my culture, if you have thin thighs or legs, it's rather unattractive. Thank goodness for diversity when it comes to ideals of beauty!

I'm not bragging, but my legs looks like hers. Actually, I think my legs and hers looks pretty good! JMHO, Lisa does tend to be self deprecating. It seems to come out a lot on her shows. Don't care for the leopard print cardigan, but love, love the shoes!

All this nit-picking about physical attributes is curious to me.

What is the ideal of "perfect" legs, hair, or anything?

"Chubby knees"? Really?

I think Lisa looks great, and her legs are great too.

Beautiful doesn't come in one size fits all. We are all different sizes and shapes, regardless of weight or height.

I usually hate all of the extreme threads on the hosts -- people go overboard with bashing/ worshipping comments.

I don't normally get involved but I have to say, some of these comments are ridiculous. 'Her arms are tanner than her legs', 'her hands aren't tan', 'her legs are chubby'. Are you kidding? What kind of microscope are you people using? Do you look through the same one when you examine your own pics?
