French Fashion Industry Is Against Banning Extreme Thinness
Something ‘terrible’ is about to happen in the world. Seems like the French parliament adopted a bill that will make illegal for anyone to publish extreme thinness. This means fashion magazine, web site, advertisers and so on will break the law if they promote the skinny look?
The fashion industry in France is against this law.
Never will we accept in our profession that a judge decides if a young girl is skinny or not skinny. That doesn’t exist in the world, and it will certainly not exist in France.

The law came after Ana Carolina Reston, a Brazilian model, died in 2006 at the age of 21 from anorexia. She was 88 pounds and 5’8” tall.
I think this law could affect us too because you see names as Victoria Beckham, Katie Holmes, Anna Kournikova, Nicky Hilton, Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, etc are synonyms with anorexia.
So this law will affect us when we’ll post photos with them, because frankly I doubt any of them will start eating and gain weight to become weight legal.
What do you think?
