Model news that caught my eye


Hey Girls, This is from a 2007 billboard featuring French model Isabelle Caro in an anorexia-awareness targeted campaign.  Shot by shot by Oliviero Toscani.

This model news caught my eye of course. You may remember this billboard of Isabelle Caro, it was also in print ads I think, the NY Daily News shares that she has died of anorexia and you might have seen her on Jessica Simpson's show called "The Price of Beauty," And the LA Times shares that  Isabelle "Caro herself spoke out about her anorexia and her efforts to recover, and the menace of eating disorders on the fashion industry...Isabelle suffered from anorexia since she was 13. She wrote a book published in France in 2008 titled "The Little Girl Who Didn't Want to Get Fat."

Jessica Simpson said on a segment on The Price of Beauty while meeting with Isabelle and hearing her story, "I think it's important for women to know that the skinnier you are, doesn't make you more beautiful." http://www.nydailynews.com/lifestyle/fashion/2010/12/29/2010-12-29_anorexic_model_isabelle_caro_is_dead_at_28_french_models_nude_no_anorexia_billbo.html
