I just found out that Former Vogue editor Kirstie Clements has released a book called “The Vogue Factor” and it exposes some pretty weird and crazy stuff about the fashion industry. You wouldn’t believe the bizarre (and incredibly unhealthy) tricks that size zero runway models use to stay so rail thin :s
“In her new book, Clements claims models still regularly starve themselves to stay super skinny and some resort to eating tissues to help them feel full. Clements quotes an unnamed Russian model who told her over lunch that her roommate was a fit model, “so she is in hospital on a drip a lot of the time.” A fit model, Clements says, is the body used by top designers and ateliers around which the clothes are designed.
Clements, who was Vogue Australia’s top editor for 13 years, recounts on one occasion she didn’t once see a top model eat a single meal on a three-day gig. Even worse…..
