Grexit sign

I happened to find these two pictures of model Anastasia Perraki, who turns 30 on Monday, and somehow they seem to bracket the ongoing financial crisis in her native Greece. The first is from a local Vogue pictorial, shot in and around a classic Cadillac, circa 2012. Note the invocation in the corner:

More somberly, an official photo of Perraki from her modeling agency:

You can almost read it: “Yeah, fine, austerity. Whatever.”

    Her legs in those shoes on the 1st picture trigger images of dystrophic children in blockaded Leningrad. Or of victims of Spanish Inquisition.

    In any case, nothing as healthy as parasite living beyond their means.

    It would take at least three of her legs to make one of mine, girthwise.

    Is it any wonder American women have such a screwed up body image?
