Madrid along with other countries have taken steps to promote a healthy and beautiful body. India, Milan, and Britain have also expressed concern about the health of models.

A lot of this has been brought about by the death of runway model, Ana Carolina Reston, who died in late 2006 from complications of anorexia nervosa.

Kate Ford, the chief executive officer of Ford Models, doesn’t buy into the idea that fashion models are creating a cult of thinness in the USA. Kate believes, “The biggest problem in America is obesity. Both obesity and anorexia stem from numerous issues, and it would be impossible to attribute either to entertainment, be it film, TV or magazines.” She says, “Societies throughout the ages have had different ideals for female beauty.”

Hey Kate, do you think that societies ideals for female beauty have changed as the images of female beauty on film, TV and in magazines have changed. In the 1950′s the alluring beauty, Marilyn Monroe, with her voluptuous curves and a generous pout was considered a sex goddess. Now young women open magazines, or turn on the TV to see an anorexic-looking Angelina Jolie, Christina Ricci, Mary Kate Olsen, Nicole Richie, Ashlee Simpson…the list goes on. For God’s sake, there are even Pro-anorexia sites out there.

Kelly Cutrone, owner of People’s Revolution, a company that produces fashion shows around the world say that women shouldn’t be comparing themselves with these girls (runway models). “These girls are anomalies of nature. They are freaks of nature. They are not average. They are naturally thin and have incredibly long legs compared to the rest of their body. Their eyes are wide set apart. Their cheekbones are high.”

Kelly’s justification for using thin girls:

“If we get a girl who is bigger than a 4, she is not going to fit the clothes,” Cutrone says. “Clothes look better on thin people. The fabric hangs better.”

Hey Kelly, are they naturally thin, or do they have eating disorders? People like you have this ( “Clothes look better on thin people. The fabric hangs better.”) burned into these girls heads.

I personally believe there is a difference between being thin and healthy vs. a person starving themselves to be thin. If anything, the people who host these fashions shows, and the agents of these models should do their best to promote healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. Of course these young women have free will, but if they naturally do not have the body to be a model without starving themselves to death, no matter how good they are, please help them to realize this about themselves.

Let the world not lose another talented young women to this horrible disease.

And…all the other men and women whose lives were taken away by anorexia

    Okay all you pro ana/mia people.

    It is fine if you want to kill yourself by destroying your body. Just remember to say goodbye to all the loved ones you know, because YOU WILL DIE. You don’t care that you are torturing your loved ones. But I supposed that doesn’t matter.
    You are all so selfish heartless bitches. You deserve to die for the pain you inflict on yourself and others. Why don’t you just cut out the suffering and kill yourselves and get it over with?
