    i think too many celebrity skinnies have distorted my view. i don’t even know what size that girl might be. is she fat? is she thin? she’d probably look thin if i saw her walking down the street but in celebrity context all i can think is “she has thick calves” and i feel terrible about that!

  2. meme says:

    @Vi – I’m with you. I have no idea what to think except are those cankles and why did she gain weight?

  3. Susette says:

    Vi – I know what you mean. I think in “normal people” appearance she looks good, but by Hollywood starlet standards she probably needs to loose weight.

  4. Stephie says:

    She looks totally normal. Gorgeous, but normal. Does every woman in Hollyweird have to look like a stick with a humongous head and massive mouth (plastic surgery does that, yikes)? I’d prefer more who looked human, and normal. Maybe that’s just me.

  5. Vi says:

    no it’s not just you stephie. i totally agree with you. my point is that i’m starting to forget what normal looks like!

  6. searching4grace says:

    Wow. I’m of the pasty white, glow in the dark variety myself, but this girl is seriously blinding me. Has she been hiding in a cave? I think she looks good otherwise, just not the wisest clothing choices for her new curves.

  7. Rachel says:

    Perhaps she’s enjoying the hiatus of her show and eating some bread and cheese. She may be larger, but look at that face, gorgeous!

  8. manda says:

    I know a Blakeley, it looks funny but sounds nice.

  9. Vingmuttern says:

    She looks lovely, it’s the styling that needs work. I like seeing starlets of a more normal weight. It’s the (redundant) fashion industry that really needs to get a clue.

  10. omondieu says:

    Man, she’s got amazing eyes!

  11. Sina says:

    Its weird, i’m so use to seeing skinny girls that it has become the “normal” for me.
    When I look at her I think “she doesn’t look right”
    But the reality is, she’s actuality.. normal.

  12. malame says:

    she’s so pale but her skin looks so flawless…agh how i wish i had flawless skin 🙁

  13. lucy2 says:

    She’s a very pretty girl. She may have gained a few lbs, but I bet in real life she’s still very thin. I actually thought she was wearing bluish white tights or something, until I saw the open toe!

    Blakesley is a mouthful. I bet the kid eventually goes by Blake or her middle name.

  14. CC says:

    Girl needs some Stacey and Clinton in her life though

  15. Green Is Good says:

    Team Michelle Trachtenberg. She looks great. Fabulous curves. She doesn’t look like a swizzle stick with a giant globe-sized head stuck on top of it.

  16. Scout says:

    @Vi – I totally agree with you – we have been slowly conditioned to think anything bigger than a size 2 (preferably a size 0) is too big!

  17. z says:

    She’s refreshing to behold I must say – gorgeous face! I think if the hemline hit just below her knee then her legs would not appear as thick.

  18. H says:

    If you click the link there are some other photos taken at a different angle and her legs look normal. Bad outfit though it attracts attention to the thickest part of her body and she’s not at all over weight.

  19. Jeri says:

    I watch Mercy which she’s in and she looks fine. Maybe a few lbs. heavier then her Buffy days but not heavy.

  20. Shannon says:

    She’s got the same body type as me now, and I’m thinnish by most peoples’ standards. She looks good, and healthy 🙂

  21. MingMing says:

    She looks healthy and HOT HOT HOT!

  22. Missfit says:

    Aww, she’s so freakin cute, I loved her back in the Buffy days and even when she was in Nickelodeon. I’m glad she has gained weight and that she doesn’t fit the Hollywood mold of what is supposedly “gorgeous and beautiful.” Not all the skinny bitches are hot and for what, to look like a 12 year old little kid? No thanks! lol She looks great!

  23. thegoodrain says:

    there was a blind on CDAN that people thought was michelle trachtenberg and her being pregnant. might be interesting to see if that’s where her weight gain originated from.

  24. ligeia says:

    she looks like your average art school student now. just meh, could walk by her on the street and she would blend in with everyone else. she was more striking looking before. oh and nice cankles.
    that article has some pictures of her from last year and she was never stick thin to begin with. girl needs to get her ass to the gym pronto, looking like an average female isn’t going to cut it in hollywood.

  25. Anna says:

    thegoodrain … was just thinking that!

  26. poiup says:

    She looks like a black girl with white makeup caked on. She’s got that full booty figure now.

  27. Anj says:

    Beautiful as ever!!!!!!!

  28. anon says:

    She has total Misha Barton legs…inverted triangles! Not fat but kind of fat for Hollywood (which means, NORMAL for most of the world..)
    Michelle’s mother is quite obese btw… many photos of them together so fwiw could be genetic and harder to keep smaller due to that? She’s nowhere near obese here though. She has odd leg shape like Misha..

  29. Dhavy says:

    I think she looks fine, I watch Mercy and she doesn’t look fat at all. Jaime Lee Kirchner is another beautiful girl on the show but sometimes she looks like a lollipop because she’s so thin!

  30. Jag says:

    I just don’t know what Oprah is thinking anymore. Why is she having all of these people on that we’ve moved past already, like a long time ago?

  31. Mistral says:

    Agree. “Blakesley” is a stupid effing name. I hate this trend where chicks name their daughters boy/last names (i.e. Addison/Madison/Taylor) or these stupid made up names like frickin “Blakesley”…

    That picture of Michelle could be a bad angle. It’s pointing down her body in a weird way…

  32. neema says:

    She needs to watch out, she’s dangerously close to developing some cankles! =/

  33. Jerk says:

    Yes I think she looks absolutely gorgeous, I also think she’s a Vampire.

  34. bb says:

    She looks good here but I hope she doesn’t gain anymore or she’ll go the way of Mischa Barton.

  35. ziggy says:

    ha! you know, we have come to think anyone over a size 2 is too big- but the reality is, most american women hover around a size 12. what a bunch of hypocrites!

  36. canadianchick says:

    She looks great-normal, curvy and lovely.

  37. danielle says:

    I think the picture was taken from a bad angle. She looks good, but her calves do look wide in this pic.

  38. Miss Bitch says:

    PREGNANT. CDaN blind item.

  39. ESDTGF says:


  40. Patrice says:

    Michele is absolutely stunning! But she definetly has NOT gained any weight. Even back in her “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” days (whoa…remember those? lol) she was one of the curvier girls on that show when she was just a teenager. As a 5ft 5 size 8, I am so thrilled to see women of ALL shapes and sizes being celebrated in the media now : ) especially girls like Michelle who I can now relate to (figure wise at least) Let’s hope we keep it up.

  41. Paula says:

    Somewhat pear-shaped but she looks attractive overall. A woman with a striking face can carry a little extra weight and still draw admiring glances. Glad to see her display her pale legs without a hint of fake bake.

  42. Lilias says:

    Cankles…those are some serious cankles. And she has definitely not always been fatter as evidenced by the link when four months ago she was quite svelte and didn’t have the cankles.

  43. Lukie says:

    Well, she was always rumored to be doing drugs. If it is true, it looks like she gave them up.

  44. B says:

    Why is she in the news?

  45. MissyA says:

    Michelle and I go way back . . . like, Nona Mecklinburg back. (I feel like we’re half-sisters, and Iggy’s our “ol’ pop” . . . *sigh*)

    Suffice it to say – I love her, and I think she looks better than she has in years. Yea Michelle!

  46. Richi says:

    She looks pale! but not bad….she has to get her calves toned!!

  47. Mello says:

    cute chick, just needs more sun…

  48. ladycrow says:

    she beautiful like this!!!!!Very feminine!!!!!!Aaaw, such a beauty!

  49. orion70 says:

    Poor choice of outfit

  50. Someone says:

    To all those saying she is “pregnant”:

    Get a freaking clue. Not all weight gain is due to pregnancy.

  51. Anne says:

    Not the best outfit choice and odd picture angles but other than that I think she looks great!

  52. Missmilly says:

    She looks great….very pretty–but is this the casting call for “Breaking Dawn”?? A little sun would help?? huh?

  53. original kate says:

    i think she looks great – such a pretty girl.

  54. Aims says:

    She’s not fat, she average/curvy. There is a difference between that… but she could get larger if she’s not careful. Beautiful skin regardless..
