Do YOU like size zero models? Do YOU think that women look good when clothes hang on their skinny bodies just like they’re clothes hangers? Last fall controversy erupted over the bird-size frames of the skinnier-than-ever models on the runways of NYC’s Fashion Week.
And after skeletal 88 lb. Brazilian model Ana Carolina Reston , 21, died in 2006 after appearing to suffer from anorexia, there were loud demands for a minimum weight/size requirement. But despite the huge controversy over the super skinny size zero models, it looks like this Mercedes Benz New York Fall Fashion Week is bringing out the same teeny tiny frames.
This season, 21 year- old top model model Coco Rocha told The New York Times that she’s “not in demand anymore ” at several Fashion Week shows because, at a size four, she is considered too big! The New York Daily News quotes Steven Kolb, executive director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, as saying, “Fashion shows are fantasy … and to be a model you have to be thin to begin with. There are healthy models that genetically have thin body structures. So [thin models] will always be on the runway.” However, strangely designers samples which used to be size four, are now size zero!
Ok … but do they have to be SO thin? Not really! As a matter of fact we saw plenty of celebrities on the runway who look healthy and happy! It’s so refreshing to see figures like curvy Kim Kardashian‘s walk a runway in a gorgeous gown, mom- of-four Heidi Klum step out just months after giving birth or Olympic athlete Dara Torres rock a frock!
