Speaking of Boden, who on earth chose this pic

for the website? Is it just me or does the model look like she just sat on a large spiked implement and her ears are Mr Spock-esque?
It's just totally unflattering in every way!

Oh dear me!

That looks like my pictures when the flash goes off early and I was still preparing my smiling face grin

If I was her I'd go mad for choosing that, surely they took hundreds of shots in that cardi. She's got a look of Cindy Crawford. I'm sure she's stunning but if that's the best shot they could find then maybe she's better as a runway model than a print model?

I know what you mean about preparing your face for the camera!

I reckon it was the best face she could muster having to wear an "embellished" cardigan. FFS, they are hideous.

SoupDragon Sun 14-Oct-12 08:13:35

LOL! That is fabulous grin

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Sun 14-Oct-12 08:18:15

Dollydowser Sun 14-Oct-12 13:17:29

Hilarious! grin

its the swing of ythe earring

had a photo of me like this and it made me very paranoid about my suddenly wonky mouth. Perhaps she was trying to look ironic in the embellished cardy and it backfired?

yousankmybattleship Sun 14-Oct-12 14:41:58

I'd make a worse face if I had to wear that hideous cardigan. grin

Ah brilliant, that made me laugh out loud. You do wonder what they are thinking when they are looking through all the shots they have taken, and choose that one.

Someone must have told her the price of that hideous cardi just as the photo was taken.

SoupDragon Mon 15-Oct-12 07:01:59

I have just reviewed it.

ALthough I suspect it may not get through their editing process...

I bought this in the hope that it would make me look like the model in the photo and it did! Immediately my ears elongated and the tips turned pointy and I discovered that people collapsed at my feet when I gripped them between the shoulder and neck. No more toddler tantrums in Waitrose I can tell you!

Fabulous. Worth every penny.

Live long and prosper!

Good work Soupy!

SoupDragon Fri 19-Oct-12 22:16:43

OMG! They actually published my review!!


ChablisLover Fri 19-Oct-12 22:31:11


Makes you wonder about the rest of their reviews!

Mintyy Fri 19-Oct-12 22:33:46

Roffle soupy!

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Fri 19-Oct-12 22:33:57

How in hell did that one get through?!

FunnysInLaJardin Fri 19-Oct-12 22:35:28

89 notes, jesus what a rip off, and lol at Soupy's review. Thats bonkers that is

Back2Two Fri 19-Oct-12 22:37:00

Vair funny. Just proves the ridiculous-ness of some model pics. Most of them we just accept, but in real life no bugger goes around looking so ridiculous.

Maybe she wanted to be unrecognisable?

I have a cardi like that that my mum gave to me. She was given it by a 99 year old friend of hers who got it from M&S a few years ago.
