In Memory Of…
Posted November 18, 2006on:
I was greeted in the papers with news that yet another model has died from anorexia. It’s really a sad and disturbing world, the fashion industry. And to make it worse, it’s usually the less well-known and less successful ones who are brought to light. This doesnt seem to make the situation any better, does it?
Ana Carolina Reston, a Brazilian, died at the age of 21. She apparently only ate tomatoes and apples. After this Armani shoot, crew members were complaining she was too thin. Indeed.
Luisel Ramos, a Uruguayan, died at the age of 22. She only survived only on diet Coke and green leafy veggies. Gosh.
I think it’s even sadder top fashion designers refuse to acknowledge some responsibility on their part when they make clothes in such ridiculous sizes most of the time. That’s my only peeve about the fashion world. Shrugs.
