The other day I stumbled across a more recent picture of her:
Some of the change is obviously due to age, which LeBrock certainly can't be faulted for. But some of it is due to weight gain, which can have a weirdly masculinizing effect. When you look at the picture above, or this picture --
-- and then look at that famous Vanity Fair cover shot of Jenner --
-- you'll see a disconcerting resemblance. In fact, the only discernible differences are that Jenner has a thinner waist and arms, and perkier breasts.
Back then, you'd certainly never have mistaken her for the young Caitlyn:
I've heard that Europeans mock us for the way so many American women look: masculine, with big implants.
Some of that may just be a matter of perception. But Americans do tend to get fat at a higher rate than Europeans. That may be partly because Americans smoke less. But it's also partly our diet, especially after decades of our government-advocated "food pyramid," which emphasizes carbohydrates and low-fat foods. That, plus the high sugar content of many processed American foods, inevitably lead to more obesity.
People seem to finally be waking up to the fact that a more Atkins-like diet is the way to go.
In the meantime, the only upside seems to be that Kelly and Caitlyn will be able to borrow each other's clothes.
