I knew I shouldn't. I knew the snark would be too, too addictive.
And... it is.

Dual-sided nipple tape.
Oh, wait, you didn't actually want a real answer...
It is sewn on to her nipple rings.

/me hands that poor girl a sandwich.
This goes along with my body image peeve, honestly.
Frankly, if she's *healthy* (and I know several women that thin who are) and she is happy with her body image, I don't care if she eats a sandwich or not, more power to her.
But someone needs to tell her, point-blank, "That is not the dress for you because it does not flatter you. It's too 'fluffy' and the color is too drab, so it ends up making you look draggy and emaciated instead of graceful."
Strapless dresses look best on women with fuller chests than hers. I have seen her look absolutely, heart-stoppingly lovely in longer, more graceful, more elegant lines. I can't find it now, but there was one a few months ago where she had on a really lovely, very simple dress with a square neckline and a slightly flared skirt. I couldn't have worn it in a million years (because I have the Hips That Ate Cincinnati), but it suited her really well. It's not her body that's the problem. It's the fact that when she tried on that dress, she did not have a good enough friend standing by her to say, "Nah, try on something different."
It's funny, because I see a lot of people, mostly women, who have so unrealistic a perception of their bodies that they pass up chances to look absolutely *beautiful* because they never learned to dress to play up their natural assets.
This. Ms. Knightley is skinny, yes, but when I look at her facial features, upper arms, and high chest, I don't see BONES. At least not always. In this picture, she really doesn't look any thinner than a friend of mine I just had over for lunch today. My friend, however, knows how to dress for her body type.
Telling someone, anyone, even if they are anorexic to "eat a sammich" is such an insidiously sexist thing to do. It's no better than telling a chubby girl to "lay off the ice cream" or whatever. I mean, how many scrawny emo-guys in their nasty skinny jeans and tight tee shirts, are chided to "eat something already!" No, not many. It's always the women.
Skinny or fat, women are damned either way. =(

I agree with you that she's likely not 'too skinny' for her body type. And that the dress is totally wrong (but that was a choice). Beyond the problem of emphasizing her chest, it also seems to poof out over her stomach. (okay, and to my eyes, it seems to be a little low...)
Not sure why I still want to tell her to stand up straight, because her shoulders do not appear to be rounded in, and yet....

It is too low. It's making her look simultaneously flat and saggy. If the dress were up higher, it would not make her look nearly so much like a twelve year old. Low cut is really only flattering when there's some decolletage to make it interesting.
Yah, it's the "model slink".. Paris Hilton does this too.
Her back is straight, but her head is forward because if you could see further down, so is her pelvis.
Which also caves in the ribs... etc, etc. Find any video of Paris walking and you see a really good example of it.
And she does have a large head for her body, but I'm just envious. ;)
