"The more fragile figurine"

Indiatimes begins a slideshow with this remarkable intro:
Actresses make pretty pictures. And these days, even more so, as the dress has come back in vogue! Dare bare acts are passé. Our ladies, these days, prefer to ‘dress’ up. ‘Smart’ has been replaced by the ‘dainty’, and the tom-boyish image and well-toned frame that was famous once, during the Dhoom 1 phase, has been swapped with the more fragile figurine. And even a well-toned Bipasha Basu in Dhoom 2 , has made sure to add a frill or two...
Sigh. No doubt the guy who wrote this excerpt thought, possibly in Marathi or Hindi, that this was exceptionally well-written. I just want to know what his editor was thinking.

Or maybe there's no editor?
