"You go to a show and there's no food at all... I remember standing up in the bath one day and... I was so thin! I was never anorexic... I remember thinking, I don't want to be this skinny," she added. Other models have echoed Moss's comments. In Vogue this month Karen Elson, who has said that in the past she was "not eating, bulimic and taking laxatives", accuses the fashion industry of encouraging models to be unhealthily thin.
"I remember I came back from a job in Paris and the stylist said to me, have you been eating too many croissants, Karen?'' Elson said. "Fashion is obsessed with finding young, beautiful and vulnerable girls, bringing them into the fashion world, praising them, worshipping them but suddenly dropping them like a stone when they hit puberty and grow boobs and hips. It's so dangerous and can potentially harm the girls mentally and physically," the model added.
