A model of anorexia?

Is this the ideal of beauty? What do you think could be the consequences of having such a skinny young girl winning the most prestigious model contest? Do you think the industry should have regulations, like it was already suggested when a model died of anorexia?


  1. The model industry definitely need some kind of regulation. When I see pictures of models, sometimes I feel like I need to lose weight even though I'm not over-weight. And I believe I'm not the only one who feels that way. Models today are promoting beauty into a wrong direction.

  2. Being slender is one thing, but I think this model's frame is beyond slender. I actually feel worried for her health because she seems so thin. It's sad that the fashion industry perpetuates this idea that this body type is the female ideal.

    I liked a point brought up in the article: why are male models allowed to have buff and healthy body frames, yet female models are pressured to be as small as possible?
