Fashion and Eating Disorders in the News

More news on the fashion industry and eating disorders...

Miss England speaks out against super skinny models.

Zero tolerance for the "Cult of Skinny Models"

Even Forbes magazine is weighing in on the issue.

Updates (Feb 16):

Milan fashion week wouldn't include a plus-size show.

Another model dies, this time, Eliana Ramos, sister to Luisel who died last August. No word on the cause of the heart attack that took her life. Edit one blog suggest malnutrition was the cause, but I suspect that is just speculation (though it wouldn't surprise me if that's the case).
