Have you heard about this book? A longtime Vogue editor wrote this book about the dark practices of models she worked with over the years. She tells stories of models eating tissues so they could feel full and being on set with a model for 3 days and not seeing her eat once. This stuff is crazy!
This is a quote taken from the book:
“When a model who was getting good work in Australia starved herself down two sizes in order to be cast in the overseas shows … the Vogue fashion office would say she’d become ‘Paris thin.’”
This is just ridiculous. I have to say, I’d rather be fat.
I wrote the other day about self esteem, and I think this goes right along with it. I would never stand a chance being compared to these models. I hate that crazy skinny is considered beautiful.
