It matches the tendency right now for everyone, including celebrities, during these times of hardship, to choose a less ostentatious lifestyle, preferring not to flaunt their assets – be they physical or material.
Excess and decadence have been replaced by a more responsible approach to life, and with it the way celebrities dress and present themselves to the world.
And this seems to have affected the trend for breast sizes, too. Gone are the days when the biggest assets to come out of Hollywood were Pamela Anderson’s breasts. Today’s popular actresses represent the smaller, more toned frame, with breasts in proportion to their slimmer physiques.
High profile celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Drew Barrymore and Sharon Osbourne have chosen to seek breast implant reduction surgery.
So, is this trend set to continue?
Recent media coverage has observed the increase in interest in less invasive cosmetic surgery techniques that help reduce signs of aging, creating more subtle changes rather than radical plastic surgery. This has been at the expense of more obvious surgery, such as breast augmentation and surgical face lifts.
Some stars have gone public about their desire for smaller breasts. Kelly Osbourne was very outspoken about her desire for surgery, as was Simona Halep, the Romanian tennis star, famed more for her large chest than her tennis prowess. The biggest stars of today like Keira Knightly, Natalie Portman, Lucy Liu and Gwyneth Paltrow, have all reached the top of the ruthless industry that is show business, despite having a smaller chest, so it would seem that casting agents are looking beyond the obvious when it comes to finding new female talent.
Yet there are web sites dedicated to the breast size of famous stars. Are we really that obsessed by their vital statistics or is this just to pander to certain elements of society?
While A-list celebrities of Hollywood are very much global trend-setters, we can see that the latest generation is more in touch with reality, in particular, the current economic climate, reflecting this in their lifestyle choices. Under-stated elegance is the watch word of Hollywood, as demonstrated by stars like Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett, and this has done nothing to diminish their careers.
Conversely, there is a flurry of interest right now, in the obvious assets of Christina Hendricks, star of popular TV Show Mad Men. Her fuller figure is natural, and is being applauded as the symbol of how natural curves can be attractive, too. She is heading a new trend in a 1960’s fashion revival, highlighting the hour glass figure with fuller skirts and chests, and small waists. Recent reports suggest she is triggering a fresh demand for plastic surgery, to create the fuller breast among every day people.
So it seems that big and natural is OK, and smaller breast implants are currently more desirable in the acting world. However, while large augmented breasts are not presently in favor with casting agents, they are certainly in demand on the ‘high street’.
