Whoa!! I love Ines and she looks great, but VOLUPTUOUS? I think she is just naturally tall and thin....if she's "voluptuous" you'd have to be half dead to be considered "thin!"

Have you seen runway models in their underwear? They look like beautifully madeup concentration camp survivors! Bones! They are sad and scary.

I agree she looks wondeful! But strong & healthy not the other adjectives the paper used.

when i think voluptuous, i think curves. she is lovely, but not curvaceous- at least in that photo.

She's a little more curvy and healthy looking than what you usually see on the runway... it's no secret that fashion models are supposed to be clothes hangers that you don't really notice, and she does stand out a little (in a good way!).

But she's still way thinner than a normal person, or even a lingerie model or something like that.

And wow, she looks awesome for 51! :)
