Memo to the magazines - anorexia is officially passe 


From Stacy Nadeau to the real catwalk. Credit Jeff Pope and Evelyn Erives for alluding to this September 10 story on KGGI-FM this morning:


Madrid fashion show snubs skinny models

Organizers of the pageant, known as the Pasarela Cibeles, used a mathematical formula to calculate the models' body mass index -- a measure of their weight in relation to their height -- and 30 percent of the women flunked, said the Association of Fashion Designers of Spain.

The association said Friday it wanted models at the show running Sept. 18 to 22 to project ''an image of beauty and health'' and shun a gaunt, emaciated look....

[T]he Madrid regional government decided to...pressure organizers to hire women who could be positive role models for girls obsessed with being thin and prone to starving themselves, said Concha Guerra, deputy finance minister of the regional administration.

Fashion shows, Guerra said, ''are mirrors for many young women.''

[Jesus] Del Pozo said this was the first time skinny models have been snubbed at a major international fashion show.



And KGGI is airing a parody of Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy," entitled "I'm Too Skinny." With the catwalk references in the original song, it's a natural.

I have visions of 80-lb models ordering dozens of large pizzas and scarfing down gallons of Ben and Jerry's. NOT.
 
"But I'm so USED to sticking my finger down my throat after dinner! How do I, like, stop doing that?"
