By far the highlight of Fashion Freak Week in New York were the Jezabel girls handing out barf bag kits as fashions finest stutted into their glamorous little pow-wow. Each attendee received their own slick vomit bag, tongue drepressor and mints for freshening up.
I know, I know we shouldn’t make fun of eating disorders. But how the hell else do we fight back against an industry that refuses to accept the magitude of the problem, much less pitch in on the solution?
We’ve got good ole’ Lagerfield saying the girls just have “skinny bones,” the CFDA going all out by providing the models with “healthy food. Why is it only the janitors seem t see what’s going on, since they admit “you can smell the vomit” eminating from the rest rooms.
Check out more great Jezabel work, in this video where some insiders admit they were told to keep an eye on the models, since they tend to faint as they exit the runway.
Next up, this dude decided to send a his message to the New York fashionistas in a very unique way and commendable way.
Let’s end on a high note:
Meet Magali, a supermodel who says it like it is when it comes to the fakery that rules the modeling industry. She even admits to having chicken cutlets stuffed in her bra on the cover of cosmo…gotta love her.
She fell victim to an eating disorder, and she speaks out about it in her new blog. Magali is a bit more forgiving of the fashion industry than I am, she chooses to instead fight for the cause by showing the reality behind all the airbrush-photoshop nonsense. Here’s how she delivers her message:
- 5 Resolutions to transform the fashion industry
- Inside Beauty, an outreach program dedicated to high schools, colleges, and conferences nationwide. Magali and Claire Mysko, a writer and on girls’ and women’s issues, combine their personal stories, in a presentation that encourages individuals to look critically at our culture’s messages about beauty.
