Sexy Lady?

Esquire has named Scarlett Johansson the Sexiest woman alive.

This is sexy? This is just fluff on a stick. She's a twig.



Thank God for Jlo, Shakira, Beyonce and others who taught Americans that a woman with a good derriere can also be sexy. Yes, I know it's Ramadan and I am not supposed to be thinking of sexy bottoms but it's after iftar and I was reading the news. The news, people.

I have never understood the Western standard of beauty that demands a woman be pencil thin. Curves add a bit of oomph to the woman. I have a secret theory that the fashion world and magazines that 'judge' these beauties are full of homosexual men who wouldn't know a real woman when they see one. Like this. Or this. Or this.Or even this.

ummmmmm scarlett johansen is not a twig. She's actually very curvy and not skinny. She may not be brown or latina but doesn't mean she's a paris hilton.

I concur with anonymous. She's not a twig. I just saw match point last night and she is a normal looking girl and yes I'm a heterosexual female, but I can easily attest that she is very sexy. I'm not surprised she got that label. Though most people might be shocked Angelina Jolie didn't take the cake.

Again, I like the way you think Mezba! Put on the list Vida Guerra and for South Asians, the late great Angela Devi.

Mezba, Aishwarya Rai stands an example of a "real woman?" Hmmmmmmm.

Need I say more? Samajdar ko ishara hi kaafi hai. ;)

By the way, I had really loved your post "Taraweeh Buggers." Two cheers for coming up with such a rich blend of humor and Mesbaesque style! Now, I just have to ask my dad on how he deals with the annoyance during Friday prayers in the mosque. :)

hmm... nah.. does nothing for me.. A google search for angela devi though...

btw I am amazed at how different scarlett looks in various pictures - it's as if it's not the same girl!

I agree. I like women with some flesh on them. I'd rather have a woman with a few extra pounds than not enough.

What is with fake women? Fake hair, too much make-up, plastic surgery?

For me the dream woman is dark haired, dark eyed, medium to dark complexion and doesnt wear too much makeup.

Dyed blond pencil thin plastic surgery guinea pigs? No way!

Mezba, I can't believe you didn't include any Bangladeshi women! o_O
I'm ashamed....

Especially when you can finds tons of Bangladeshi cinema actresses with a lot of weight on them! I'm sure you know what I mean. Don't go looking for the Natok actresses cuz they're all Scarlett Johansson like.

And like the person before said, "Aishwarya Rai is normal?"

Nuf said. (hehe! That's the first time I said something that "gangster"!) /d^_^b\
