Heather Morris

The Science Behind Mainsteam Sexy

I saw this cover of Women's Health in the supermarket today. It's great, fresh photography and actress Heather Morris looks good. What really struck me, though, is that this photo was right out in the open for all to see at the checkout stand. A woman in a bikini and not much else. This is hardly over-the-top in my view, but then again, I doubt we would see Bria Myles in a bikini on the cover of a national magazine like this either. So what is it, exactly, that makes this cover mainstream-acceptable where a similar photo of really curvy urban model would likely be unacceptable for this cover. I've got a couple ideas, but I'm interested to hear others...
