cara delevingne burgerOh, Cara Delevingne, you have nothing to prove. And while eating burgers is great, I feel like it’s odd that we live in a world where there is so much excitement over Victoria’s Secret Models tweeting pictures of themselves about to inhale an In-N-Out burger.

There is, of course, absolutely nothing wrong with eating In-N-Out burgers. They’re nice, they taste good, it’s probably healthiest not to eat them every single day, but cool, yes, of course everyone should have one now and then.

But t it’s a bit odd that approximately half of the profiles of beautiful women begin with the interviewer saying “then she tucked into a greasy burger.” Look, do you know what I would probably not do if I was being employed to maintain a certain body shape? Tuck into greasy burgers on a regular basis. That’s reasonable. Maintaining a certain weight, even if you have a great metabolism, can be tricky. It’s certainly something that you’d pay attention to if that was a large part of your job. I actually have more sympathy for stars trying to get in shape who have to avoid say, any foods with gluten, even if that makes them sound high maintenance.

Whenever I read interviews wherein Cara Delevingne is exclaiming:

‘I always get so excited cooking chicken wings. I don’t know, because it’s chicken wings! I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like chicken wings. You say chicken wings and everyone’s like “What, what? Chicken wings? I’m there.” Chicken wings and beer, chicken and beer. Perfect.’


‘First thing I do when I get to America… get a McDonalds’.

I kind of feel like this is being done to perpetuate a cool male fantasy that there are women eating entire buffet spreads and never gaining a pound. In reality, most women do need to… not survive off of burgers and chicken wings if they want to look a certain way.

And really, even if you are naturally thin, as Cara is, it’s probably a good idea to occasionally eat something a little bit healthy. Just because it will be good for you in the long run! But then, eating a nice salad probably does not photograph nearly as well as an In-N-Out burger.
