She came. She saw. She turned Size Zero. She conquered. Yes, we are talking about our very own Bebo, who grabbed eyeballs with her ''Size Zero'' in TASHAN. Her hot bod made headlines in the media, bought her hours of air time, and created waves on the radio. While some gave tips on how to sculpt that much coveted body, others pointed out the health hazards associated with the ''Zero'' flu! But this borrowing from the global fashion industry was here to stay and how! Many B-Town babes followed suite to keep up with Bebo's new style statement. For all the men who waited in anticipation to check her out in a lime green bikini, the wait was....worth it? Hmmmmm...we are still trying to figure!

So what is this ''Size Zero'' craze all about? In layman's language, it is a women's clothing size in the US Catalog size system, to fit measurements of anywhere from 30-22-32 to 33-25-35. But Bollywood has given this concept its own colour. A sleek body, washboard abs, celebrating the absence of those sensuous curves which typically make many a men gasp for breathe on seeing those garam thumkas! While Bebo looked sweltering hot in her brand new avtaar, did the boys in the house go yeah????

Those in favour of this fad in Bollywood argue that skinny is attractive, and this global phenomenon is a great way to grab attention by moving away from the stereotype definition of a bombshell. This concept seems to have brought into Bollywood a breathe of fresh air, redefining a Sex Symbol. It seems to be riding on the mantra, ''If you have it, flaunt it'', giving a renewed sense of confidence to our heroines. Having said this, when talking about our global celebs, Victoria Beckham has been touted by the Indian media as being ''painfully thin'', Beyonce's well rounded butt still has many takers with Kate Winslet's voluptuous figure being a favourite male fantasy. There are many Indian men who still swear by plunging necklines and the orgasmic rush of a peek-a-boo! They can go to any length to preserve this definition of a true diva, who always has ''more'' to show.

Many actresses too have brought out their weapons stating that Indian men would not like to have a size zero woman by their side, and like women to be yummy. Metrosexual men have gone on record to say that size zero is a turn off and that this perfection that women like to personify can be quite intimidating at times. The babe's obsessive streak could be enticing in a fling, but could wreck havoc in an emotional link-up. While size zero can make a woman's body flat, what about her attractive assets?? So while the ladies can slog it out to achieve the enviable stats, are those who they do it for watching in delight? The Big Size Zero Debate still continues...
