A week or so before Fashion Week, the CFDA held a panel discussion on the body image in the fashion industry at Milk Studios. Entitled "The Beauty of Health: Resizing the Sample Size," speakers included Zac Posen, casting agent James Scully, and model Doutzen Kroes. Apparently the thinspirational size 0 or 00 models that are still working the runways scare designers, editors, casting agents, and fellow models. Panelists agreed that the trend of prepubescent, skeletal models needs to change, but said it’s going to take a collective effort by the entire fashion industry to do it. But I think the greatest quote from the evening came from Casting Agent James Scully who said, "I can open up any magazine or go to any show and tell you what girls are taking Adderall, how many girls are taking Vicodin, how many girls are throwing up — girls are really resorting to dangerous things," "I will applaud Anna Wintour and this forum, because it changed how I passed — it made me ask girls' ages," Scully continued. "You know, there are times when I will have to book a Karlie Kloss because she’s exceptional, but what makes me sad is the disloyalty in this agency and the way these girls are discarded as though they're meat. To me, for Karlie Kloss, what is to say what happened to Gemma Ward, what happened to Hilary Rhoda will not happen to her? We all love her today, but when she grows breasts and she turns 18 are we all going to turn on her?" Posen added, "I think we created a droid-like mold and … fashion editors or stylists or now even buyers are trained to look at that and say I can’t see continuity unless I see the same droid-like skeleton on the runway." Scully is also troubled by the ages of the top runway girls. "It will never happen, but I would love to see a minimum age of 18, and even that’s not old enough for some of these girls, because it’s hard, and I just think it’s a lot for some of these girls to psychologically deal with.” He continued, “It’s really sad to look at a room of 16- year-old girls who watch Lara Stone walk into a room and they all look at her and say, 'That’s who I want to be,' and Lara Stone looks at them and says, 'I feel terrible about myself.'" Doutzen Kroes made a decision to take her career in a different direction because she didn't want to starve herself. "I probably fit the sample size once, when I was eleven or twelve. It became a problem — I was always told lots of times that I should lose weight. It was a thing, ‘You look great, but you should probably lose a few pounds,'" Kroes explained. "That kept going on until I was about 22, and when I was like, ‘This is crazy,’ because I would look in the mirror and I like the way I look." So Kroes met with her agents: "What we called now a so-called 'ass meeting,' because I have one, I have one. It was there, and you know I could maybe get rid of it, I had a choice, not eat maybe for weeks." Unlike many models, Kroes had the luxury to choose which direction she wanted to take her career. "I think this is what a lot of girls don’t have now — they have to go back to poor countries if they don’t fit the sample sizes and I hope that after what I’ve done, I’ve chosen that I want to have a healthy lifestyle with the body that I have and work around it and I hope there will be more opportunity for girls to have a choice like that," she added. In fact, she credits food to her success. "When you don’t eat, you get grumpy, you don’t feel good. So how can you have joy in what you’re doing? And I have that joy and I think that’s what clients see and that’s why I work for two huge global brands. They like working with me, and it’s because I’m eating! There are naturally skinny girls, but not all of them and I’m not one of them." Check out Doutzen Below... that really is a weight gain..
Then Page Six Magazine contained roughly 2,500 words on Gemma Ward's fallout from the fashion industry is because she gained weight. The piece is a disturbing chronicle of Ward's transition from teenager to adult and how the industry views it. Now 22, Ward was discovered in Perth, Australia, at the age of 14. She appeared on more than twenty Vogue covers, landing her first American Vogue cover at just 16. She was super bone thin, and looked like a beautiful angel alien. But then in 2007, she walked the Chanel show in a denim bikini shocking Prothinspo to talk about her weight gain instead of how thinspirational she was… and another editor had this to say about her weight gain…"I almost didn't recognize her," says the editor, who confesses she was aghast. Compared to the other ultraskinny models, Ward looked as if she had gained 10 to 15 pounds, "big, almost bloated." A photo agent who worked with Ward said that for every model with staying power, there are twenty who don't make it past age 18 — that time when girls become women, and grow breasts and hips, and gain the weight that is a natural part of growing up. "It's an image-driven industry that doesn't take kindly to the girl who bucks the trend. Clients start saying, 'She's fat now, don't book her!' If you want to be cynical about it, looking that way was her job. She doesn't want to do what it takes, she's not going to get work. That's just the way it is." . But Ward could not grow up and gain the curves nature intended. She had a super skinny body and that is what the industry expected of her when they hired her.. Not this bigger 22 year old. But there is more to her weight gain… In the aftermath of Ledger's death, Ward retreated further from the fashion world. The supermodel put on a more noticeable amount of weight and gossips began to surmise that his death had been the trigger for her so-called "emotional eating." Another anonymous source offered: "Gemma's torn. In the last few years [her weight gain] was very much her f--k you to the industry. She's rebelling by putting on 30 or 40 pounds, so now going back isn't a straightforward option.

The world's top models flew to Brazil last week to walk in São Paolo Fashion Week. And as it came to a close, Paulo Borges, the event's creative director, said he was alarmed by how emaciated the girls looked. Though many of the models are Brazilian, they are based in the U.S. or Europe most of the year. The AFP reports: [T]he perceived new push towards skeletal models was a worry. "This situation cannot be ignored," Borges said, urging those in the fashion industry to stand up against the new trend. "We would like to propose a joint effort towards minimizing this issue and preventing the effects of this trend on models, on our industry and on society itself," he said. We perceive nothing new about the "push toward skeletal models." Every season the Brazilian event has seemed to employ models that were no meatier than those who walk regularly in New York, Paris, or Milan — even though three years ago organizers introduced minimum age requirements and mandated that agencies and designers issue health reports to help create "a positive message" about modeling. Maybe regulating model age and passing out pamphlets about health don't have any effect on the image the industry has of the ideal girl. Certainly when our CFDA set up a booth in the tents to provide information about eating disorders, no one went! CHECK OUT THIS BACKSTAGE PHOTO.. AND THIS IS NOT PHOTOSHOPPED.
ALI STEPHENS SAID SHE WONT STARVE HERSELF.. Backstage last night before Erin Wasson's RVCA show at ABC Carpet and Home, model Ali Stephens recalled fond memories of working with Alexander McQueen. She walked in his spring 2009 show. "He was amazing. He was so nice. You could tell he really cared about people, too, and that he cared about the girls," she said. "I don’t ever remember any bad experience with him at all, or anything like that. He wouldn’t be the type of guy who would be like, ‘Oh if you don’t fit that outfit, you’re out of the show.'" Does that happen a lot with designers? "Uh, yeah!" Stephens said. "I mean it depends [on the designer], but that could get me into a whole mess of trouble."
Stephens, who is very tall, very thin, and very gorgeous, said it has happened to her: "Oh yeah. Of course." She continued, "I’m not the typical skinny — I have hips. I love my body but I’m not one of the girls willing to starve themselves for fashion, so I do what shows I can but I don’t, pressure myself to fit into the sample sizes." Because of this Stephens only walks a few shows a season now. "I do good shows but I'm not a show girl. I was in the beginning of my career. But I grew up," she said. "I'm 18." We reminded her that's still young. "I know — I haven’t grown up. What am I talking about?" she said, laughing. "But it’s hard for these girls, you know? You start out when you’re 16 and your body is, you know, naturally a rail and then you grow up and it’s just unhealthy to make it a rail when it’s not."
Stephens has no current plans to go to Milan or London Fashion Weeks. She was hesitant to admit that European shows demanded skinnier models. "No, it’s true. It is. It makes no sense to hide it," she said. "You have to speak out about it. Europe is definitely, I think, skinnier. But it all just really depends on the designer and their aesthetic, which I respect. So I understand if I’m not somebody’s ideal. You know, so whatever works for them. But it’s always important to remember that models are humans. We’re not just ghosts." The Cut http://nymag.com
British paper The Independent says plus-size models are increasingly sought after these days. "[D] esigners, retailers and magazine editors demand women with curves," the paper trumpets. Their evidence:
• Mark Fast used size 12 and 14 models in his runway show in September. He says he will use models of similar sizes again next month. • Marks & Spencer will reportedly use a plus-size model in its lingerie campaign. • Asos recently used a plus-size model in some ads. • Catalogue company Boden is reportedly "thinking about using bigger models." • The head booker at Hughes Models, a plus-size agency in the U.K., says she added twenty girls to her roster last year, "which is a lot."
The paper quotes fashion commentator Caryn Franklin, who says, "There is now a real ripple of interest around models that are different from the standard catwalk model, who is too thin." She's right, there is "a real ripple of interest" right now, and V's latest size issue is just one indication. But does it signify a genuine desire on behalf of the industry to project healthier body images to the world? It is perhaps too soon to tell, but it seems like a passing fad. So often fashion spreads of plus-size women, who are quite frequently naked for no apparent reason, seem to be a vehicle for gawking at a shape that is so different from what our eyes are used to. Fast will get plenty of attention for using plus-size women in his show again next month. But why not use women who are size 8? You hardly have to look at Alexander McQueen's spring 2010 Alien shoes to understand fashion is all about extremes, and a girl twenty pounds heavier than most runway models isn't as extreme as a girl who's 70 pounds heavier. We'd so much rather designers embrace women of an average size who are not overweight (or within the healthy range but as close as they can be to overweight).

AND IF THE ENTIRE CONTROVERSY ABOUT SUPER SKINNY WASN'T ENOUGH, NOW THEY GO ONTO PHOTOSHOPPED SKINNY.. About 50 politicians in France are backing a proposed law to label retouched images as such to help fight eating disorders and body-image issues among young women. Kind of like how cigarettes come with a health warning. Advertising, press photographs, political campaigns, art photography, and images on packaging would all be affected if the law is passed. However, people in the glossy perfect-image business aren't having it.
“The camera has always lied and always will,” commented Tony Chambers, editor in chief of Wallpaper and a former art director of British GQ. “These things should always be taken with a pinch of salt. Fantasy and artistic interpretation are core ingredients in fashion, advertising and art photography.”
So, just to be clear: Shaving fifteen pounds off a girl's hips and thighs is "artistic interpretation." Marc Ascoli, art director of campaigns for Yohji Yamamoto, Jil Sander, and Chloé, among others, thinks the law borders on "comical," according to WWD.
“It’s so arbitrary,” he said. “It’s clear that there have been abuses. Sometimes heads are completely transformed. They’ll change the model’s eye color and hair. Sometimes I have the impression I’m looking at a window dummy. But there is such a global commercial pressure for perfection.”
It seems the aim of the law is to partly erase some of that pressure. But also, while these people work in the image business and know all the manipulation that goes into these images, many average girls don't. That said, even if models are retouched, they're not getting any fatter anyway.

Today the New York Times confirms something we've known and held sacred in our hearts for ages: We are the thinnest county in New York State. Probably one of — if not the — thinnest in the country. Whereas 67 percent of the nation's population is overweight, only 42 percent of Manhattan's population is overweight. And sometimes — okay, all the time — being skinny is all that matters, especially in fashion. Screw job performance, screw health, screw a general state of happiness — nothing is more important than showing up at a party and being one of the thinnest people there. Besides, being thin leads to things.
“My mom always says, ‘The smaller the dress size, the larger the apartment,’ ” said one lifelong Upper East Sider, who said she did not want to be named because she disapproves of the maxim.
Frankly, most of the rich people quoted in the Times article say equally obnoxious things. They all confess to being gym and salad obsessives, and their heights and weights are all listed in the article. But at least, unlike fashion models, these folks admit they put a lot of time, effort, and thought into staying skinny. Where as models "eat burritos and brownie pie all day" and "never exercise." Because that is even more obnoxious.

Usually when fashion magazines put forth these figure-themed issues, they make a show of placing extra emphasis on people with non-model figures But British Vogue put supermodel Natalia Vodianova naked on the cover of next month's issue, as if to remind the world of how perfect her figure is. Inside the magazine, she "talks about her body hang- ups." So readers are supposed to feel better about their own figure hang-ups, knowing these are shared by women who look like Natalia? "My agency thought that I might never do shows, because I was a bit shorter and not skinny enough," Vodianova revealed of her early career. "But what happened was; when I gave birth to my first son I was 19, so I lost a lot of weight. I guess the stress on the body was extreme and I suddenly just turned into this stick — just the way designers love models — and after Lucas was born that's when my career took off. I opened a lot of shows on the runway and that's where stars are made in my industry."
Lucas was her third child, born in December of 2001. She was back on the runway two months and 21 days later. So the woman is a freak of nature. A stunningly beautiful, gazellelike freak of nature, but a freak of nature nonetheless. Leave it to Vogue to make women everywhere feel better about themselves.... SO FUNNY...
There are three booths in this photo snapped inside the tents today. One booth is for BlackBerry; one is for Havaianas; and one is the CFDA health and beauty booth, which offers counseling and information on eating disorders to the fashion masses. Guess which two of these booths have seen 20 to 30 people lining up all day long, and which one is always empty, save for a lonely staffer gazing longingly at the crowds to the left and right?
Caffeine Supplements Today’s urban warriors are much the same. Ginseng, caffeine and Eastern medicine are still being utilized. Now as it was then, you are no where without the basics namely sleep, smart eating and exercise. First aim for at the minimum 6hours of sleep a night, for some a brief nap may lead to greater alertness and productivity. Pack in energy-promoting foods. The definition of energy is calories so make them count. Veggies provide fiber, vitamins and nutrients. Nutrition bars are a great source as well ... Caffeine is America’s most popular drug some 85% of Americans drink coffee or some type of caffeinated product. Americans usually are not the healthiest of the planets people there are better choices to make. South Central America they use a product called Yerba Mate and Guarana. West Africa the caffeine choice is kola nut and leaf. Caffeine works by stimulating the nervous system to speed up the heart rate, raise blood pressure and rev up the metabolism (helping the body lose weight.) It also heightens alertness and concentration...
