Gemma Ward has started to eat

*UPDATE* -- yes this is photoshopped. Gemma has gained weight but NOT that much. Thanks for all the comments with the heads up guys :)

I know there have been Gemma's-gone-fat rumours in the modelling community for months now...but I thought it was just pundits being dramatic....but these pictures made me rethink. Of course, the modelling world's fat is my skinny...

Thank GOD!! She looks healthy- slender but healthy and a shape that it's not unhealthy to aspire to for most women. She looks great in the clothes but doesn't overshadow them (catwalk models aren't supposed to be 'visible'- they're supposed to compliment the fashions being the secondary area of attention) which is perfect.

What a wonderful role-model. Let's hope this starts a new trend or she doesn't bulk up to an equally unhealthy size to make a statement and go the other way.

looks like something has been done to the first pic, her arms and legs dont look right, she looks awful in the top one, the second is better.

The first image is photoshopped to make her look larger. Who ever did it really needs to learn how to use he liquify tool properly.

What's wrong with me that when looking at that first pic (and knowing full well that her two thighs don't come even close to approximating *one* of mine) I think she looks chubby? I am a truly sick product of the media...

I find her highly unattractive at either weight.

hey elisa this site has got pics of Gemma in the same outfit and others from the same show, she was totally photoshopped to look chunky and lumpy, she has gained though just not so much. http://theskinnywebsite.com

The more people we see in the media with actual normal body shapes the better, looking toned, fit and healthy is one thing but when all we see are overly skinny people it just messes with our minds.

hey,
i'm a model and i've worked with gemma a few times recently... and yes, she has gained. that photo isn't photoshopped; it's simply taken at an angle that further draws attention to her shapeliness. i'm so proud of her for having gained - hopefully other models will follow suit! and hopefully, gemma won't crash-diet to lose the weight after everyone on the internet calls her 'fat'...

i think she looks great. a bit bigger, but more 'smoothed out' than fat... and lucky girl, her stomach is still flat as!

This particular shot though, the one in the blue bikini is def. photoshopped. someones used the liquefy filter, and not very well. No ones thigh would have those bizarre waves in it!

She is still very beutiful but she has lost that "it" factor. She's out but she had a good run I think that she would be a great plus size model! But yeah If she wants to do this fashion she needs to lose like 30 pounds!

obviously poor photoshopping to make her look wobbly, otherwise she looks great. and "zach" needs to shut up- losing 30 pounds does not an "it" girl make!

she looks fat. skinny gemma is prettier :)

I'm quite saddened to see so many people say she looked "prettier" at her emaciated weight, and people worried she will become overweight and "unhealthy".

Forget "fat" or "skinny" or any other of those terms, think of her BMI. She's way taller than most girls her age, and her weight now is probably (if not less) than what her BMI should be for her height.

I'm so glad to see she is now iconic enough to be able to model at a healthy weight and have her pick of the shows. Bravo Gemma!

Lets chase a view in the wind,
Lets reach a higher space as i plant a stairway for the meaning of silence,
Lets draw clouds with our soul using a tool,
Lets go through the revolved doors,
Lets ride the spiral,
Way down inside ur me and im u,

Anyone consider the fact that maybe she's finally hit puberty? That tends to happen when girls hit their teens, but with all of these models starving themselves half to death, it can be delayed for a while...

i dont think it is a good thing that everyone is happy that she gained like 35 pounds i doubt she is. she is a supermodel her job is to be that skinny. she could be a plus size model now. there is nothing wrong with being as skinny as she was. i am very skinny and i am healthy. it is her job, she gets paid millions of dollars to look like that i dont think she has it that bad
