Today the big story from the Golden Globes red carpet is not a daring outfit, or a hot new couple, but one woman’s weight.
You know what they say – there are three things that are certain in this life: Death, taxes, and a woman’s weight being the headline story of any big red carpet event.
Sometimes, a celebrity has dared to eat something. That’s what we call NEW CURVES!
Sometimes, a celebrity is carrying another person, but has decided not to tell anyone yet. Yes, it’s a BABY BODY!
[INSERT GG red carpet here??]
And sometimes, a celebrity will be TOO THIN.
SKIN & BONES.
Cue 25 images from 25 angles of jutting collar bones and twig-like arms.
Cue faux-concern from “experts” about the precarious mental health of the star in question.
Cue insinuations that the the star’s weight is not only concerning, it is irresponsible.
Today, that someone is Giuliana Rancic. To be honest, it almost always is.
Giuliana was on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, doing her job. If you’re not familiar, she is a reporter on E! News, a regular on Fashion Police and always, always does the red carpet report for E! for every big Awards show on the calendar.
And she’s thin. She’s always been thin.
She also is a breast cancer survivor, the star of her own reality show and a woman who has been outspoken about her battle with infertility (she’s mum to Duke, X, who was born via a surrogate. She and husband Bill Rancic say their surrogate recently miscarried their second child).
She’s also funny, and frank, and always looks genuinely excited to be asking Angelina who she’s wearing.
Today, Giuliana stepped onto the Golden Globes red carpet wearing this:
And yes, let’s say it again. She is thin. Very thin.
It’s not like she doesn’t know it. Every time the woman has her picture taken, Tweets like this happen:
