Hey BFFs — New York Fashion Week — the site previous years of outrage over skeletal models on the runways — is just around the corner.
Is that why Leo DiCaprio’s on-again girlfriend Bar Rafaeli, 25, tweeted moemnts ago on Aug. 30, “I get so sad when I see 15-year-old pale extremely skinny models at the agency looking all shaky and hungry…. when will it end?!?!?
We’re assuming Bar is referring to the model agency that reps her — One Management in NYC and that the 15-year-old skinny models are starving in preparation of their booking appointments with different designers — hoping to land runway spots.
Yay to you Bar for speaking out against the scary skinnyness that sadly still rules too many runways — god knows why. Neither women — who are supposed to buy the clothes — nor men — like that shaky, hungry look.
Bar’s tweets are repeatedly outspoken about the dangers of plastic surgery, drugs, alcohol and unhealthy living, “Some people are addicted to drugs and others addicted to alcohol. Me? I’m addicted to pomegranate juice,” she tweeted yesterday.
“Seriously… plastic surgery is not helping your impact on young women or your looks,” she also pointed out.
As for the Fashion World. How about your addiction to pin thin? Can we check you into rehab?
