I actually gasped at the sight of stylist-to-the-stars/designer/coiner of the ridiculous phrase ‘that’s bananas’, Rachel Zoe at the Warner Bros. And InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party at the Beverly Hilton.
The gal who dressed Kate Hudson and Jennifer Garner among others for the awards red carpet looked strikingly emaciated at the after party.
Now this one has fashion talent, but she clearly has issues. That collar-bone scares the bejaysus out of me, as do the stick-man arms, making me appreciate my underarm waddle for once.
She’s only 41-years old. Whatever she is doing to herself to maintain this glittery-corpse is ageing her into her 50s.
With a new season of The Rachel Zoe Project in the offing, I worry about the message she sends out to impressionable young girls trying to make it in fashion. Even though she looks terrible, she emphasises the importance of fitting a sample/runway size if you want to be a fashion industry player.
Israel might have enacted a law banning the use of ‘Underweight’ BMI models, but the likes of ANTM panel member and fashion Tw@tter prince, Bryan Boy’s, thinspo comment last week, shows that the fashion and celebrity machine is feeding on a glamorized, unhealthy body image.
I would hope that young girls look at this and see a person in trouble, and take in the effects of drastic measures to be skinny.
I’d have a better idea on my opinion of this dress if I was looking at it on an actual clothes hanger.
