I was googling images of Karima Adebibe and found two I've never seen, which were apparently from a movie premier of "Independent Blues":

She looks gorgeous, oh my goodness! Here's a trailer of the movie. It's very slow paced, so if all you're interested in is seeing Karima, you may want to skip ahead to 1:40.

The movie looks very slow paced and easy going. I'm actually very fascinated about it and would love to see it. It's great to see that Karima is doing more stuff, as well. Maybe she'll land some bigger roles down the road, that would be fantastic. :D

omg I would loooove to see her portray Lara in a movie. <3 Too bad it probably will never happen, though. :/

Has she lost weight? She looks bonier than she did as Lara.

She certainly looks thinner, but I also noticed her bustline looks a heck of a lot smaller, too. She looks very small chested in these pics, which I'm not used to seeing because her bustline looks ginormous in her Lara modeling, and even her regular bikini photoshoots. I know she was heavily padded and taped when she played Lara, and definitely taped up with the bikini pics as well, but I wonder if she had implants removed? Maybe? Either that or she lost weight and they got smaller.

Either way, I personally love her sleek and slim look. She looks like a goddess. :eek: Just beyond stunning, I can't believe how beautiful she is.

I'm a huge fan of her and I wish her the best as well. I wold love to see her make it really big. :D

I don't think she looks old. Not a single wrinkle in site, her face isn't gaunt or skinny, she's go plenty of healthy meat around her face. I also think her makeup looks hot. It's a bit much for an everyday look, but for a premiere I think it's very sexy. :)

She has hugely uplifted breasts - in some photo's you could see the brown of her nipple, because her boobs were forced so high.

lol yeah, they were taped to the max. :vlol:

Allison Carrol is very tiny chested, she looks like an A, yet when she's in her Lara costume she's so taped and padded to look like a D or a DD.

It's amazing what you can do with some tape and cotton. :p

What is it with you thinking that your only beautiful if you are thin.

Ugliness on the inside is a far worse trate to have.

Not everyone spends hours powdering their faces with white crap.

That is just wrong, having a BMI smaller than 23 is wonderful.
When a women keeps her body in shape, that is a sign that she loves her body and that she is ambitious towards herself. That are wonderful inner values.

He's not saying that there is anything wrong with being thin, he is merely saying that you don't have to be skinny to be beautiful.

There's nothing wrong with what he said, not at all.

I don't think you have to be thin to be beautiful, slim is just my personal preference (with women). I don't like unhealthy skinny, but slim looks so whimsical to me. I love how Karima looks when she's slim, but then again, I also oogled over how hot she was when she was much thicker than the average model as well.

I also think Fluvia Lacerda is a very beautiful woman, and she is plus sized:

http://20.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kr0p1dJEIE1qzo3b4o1_400.jpg

I think people of all different shapes and sizes (as long as they look healthy) are beautiful, but my personal preference as far as women go is slim. Just like some people like short women, some like tall, some like blue eyes, some like brown eyes, etc. It's nothing more than a preference, and I am sorry you got offended by that.

This is completely off topic though, but if you feel like I'm out of line on anything, please PM me and we can discuss it. I'm more than willing to see other points of view. If I'm wrong in this, please show me, and if you're right, I'll change. :) I personally don't see anything wrong with having a preference, though.

Maybe that's one reason why I loved those pics so much, because I really like Selma Blair as well. Keen eyes there, I didn't even notice. :p

I acknowledge this a 100%.


This forum is really a kind of twee, women having my hardcore heterosexual opinion and men tell some crap about the most desirable women on the planet.

It looks like she's caked on the eyebrow pencil in those pictures. That combined with the blue-red lipstick makes her face kinda harsh.

I love her eyebrows. Mine are very thin because I was tweeze happy as a teenager, and I with they were fuller. Karima's eyebrows are well groomed and gorgeous, I love them. <3

19-11-09, 22:27
Her eyebrows are wonderful. The fact that she doesn't pluck them indicated that she loves her body. That makes her adorable and desirable.


I don't think her eyebrows have anything to do with how she sees her body. Anyway, I'm going to agree to disagree. She might have looked better without the overwhelming lipstick color, but with both that and the eyebrows, she's sort of overboard.

Sweetie, I'm trying to be hateful just to do so. :) I've always liked Karima, and she's actually my favorite Lara model. I'm just not so blinded by my admiration that I will stand by someone's fashion choices even if I don't like them.

I'm not saying that you're doing this, but I'm saying that I am allowed to dislike certain looks and actions and not just be "hating" on it because.

Yeah, I definitely see your point. Personally, it looks like she may have had implants before and had them removed. In which case, I definitely prefer her more natural look as opposed to all the tape an padding, even if she didn't have implants. Well endowed or small chested, women just look far more beautiful when they're natural and not so taped and padded, imo.

One reason why I think she looks so elegant and classy in these pics. <3 Her makeup is definitely over the top, but for a premiere look, edgy is in, and I think she's working it just fine. :tmb:

VB is allowed her own opinion, char. Not everyone agrees, and that is ok, there is nothing wrong with that. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We may think her eyebrows look gorgeous (which I do), but others may think they are ugly. Its not a factual thing, it's all opinion, and we should respect everyone whether they agree with us or not. :hug:

Well Karima is hardly a star now, she cannot afford a personal stylist and make-up artist. Probably most flinging these insults could not look any where near as good.

A B maybe but she never looked like a C unless it was a trick of the camera, the padding or some other gravity defying trick. You do not have to have to be naturally endowed in the breast department to dress up as Lara Croft.
