Spare a sandwich?

Wow. I am not sure what is more amazing.

The fact that the woman - Isabelle Caro - in this picture is only 27! Or, the fashion industry actually cares about the underweight models they force into insane roaster dresses.

The model - of course - is an anorexic who weighs just 31 kilos (4 stone, 12lb - Love the british!), has been displayed on Milan billboards as the city celebrates its fashion week.

Caro indicates that her illness is a result of a rough childhood and she goes on to say that she has hidden herself - not hard to do - and covered myself - with floss - for too long. Now she wants to show herself freakishly - I mean fearlessly - even though she knows that her body arouses repugnance.

Cynic that I am, it would not surprise me if there's a feeding frenzy among elite couturiers to secure an exclusive modelling contract with this woman. They are no doubt salivating at the thought of how nicely, how elegantly their clothes will hang off her bony body. Women's curves are so nasty, they think, it ruins the line of the dress.
