I suffered for many years from the "lovely face" syndrome.
This is the way it works:
You go out to 'a do' having paid a fortune for the outfit and 'control undergarments' (guarenteed to 'smooth even the most challenging outline') not to mention the hair do and the shoes and bag.
You have done the Boots-7-day-detox diet and find it really helps with keeping the stomach tucked in right throughout the photos and even on the walk to the loo - (though that a becomes a bit more difficult after the dinner and a few drinks).
You chat and mingle (holding your glass delicatly in your newly manicured hand - more money!) and you are in no doubt whatsoever that you are at your most charming and vuluptuous (another term hated by the Possum) when over the murmur of voices you hear it ........ the comment - guarenteed to drive you to the desert trolley ........
"Oh yes, that's (add your name here), doesn't she have a lovely face"?
They may as well have said "Gawd what a fat munter"!!!!! It would be a lot more honest.
No matter what Vanessa Feltz or any of the other celebrity 'big girls' might like us to believe, BIG IS NOT BEAUTIFUL and it has never genuinely been acknowledged as such.
Having a 'nice (BIG) face' on top of a large body just isn't enough. FAT IS NOT IN VOGUE and never will be.
So let's keep stuffing those packs - who wants to be just a lovely face?
