Waifs Deemed Sick in Madrid


Good news arrives via Ed.

"Madrid's fashion week has turned away underweight models after protests that young girls and women were trying to copy their rail-thin looks and developing eating disorders."

"Organizers say they want to project an image of beauty and health, rather than a waif-like, or heroin chic look."
(...)
"The mayor of Milan, Italy, Letizia Moratti told an Italian newspaper this week she would seek a similar ban for her city's show unless it could find a solution to "sick" looking models."
