Re: Madrid banned super-thin models; Milan might be next
Doesnt sound like a bad idea to me..
Going back to your original post...If according to this Ricardo Gay, 80% of models would be too thin for the catwalk, I think it will be absolutely AMAZING how quickly the girls will put on those extra pounds.
Here's a picture of Christian Dior and his models some time in the 1950's.
All at a fine weight, on the slender side.
You know, all this obssession with low weight seems to have started in the 60's, with Twiggy. Truthfully, no one I knew of found her attractive at all....we would make jokes about how skinny she was....Looking back, this was a, what, 15 or 16 year old girl?
This is what Twiggy Lawson looks like today....
This comment is oversimplified, but it's not that far fetched....
Did we become so obsessed with weighing the least amount possible without fainting because of a 16 year old girl, who probably had barely started menstruating?
Who's decision was it to promote this back then? A few people who thought women should look like boys?
