Looking for skinny models…I beg to differ

May 4, 2009

This ad is looking for ‘two catwalk models’ for a gala dinner in Brunei. The ad says the height requirement  is 175cm and above.While I like the part where it says age does not matter but height does, one line did make my jaw dropped. It says ‘skinny frame’ as one of the requirements.

skinnyNow, now. Where did the campaign on not to use skinny models for shows go? I dont know if it just applies to the west but the east should not be of any different at all. In last year’s runway shows from New York to Milan and London, more models with the real curves (skinny does not count as curvy) were seen on the catwalks.

Skinny equals to eating disorder and this is unhealthy. Was it Kate Moss who started the trend when she entered the fashion scene back 20 years ago with her ultra thin frame? Two models who died from complications due to eating disorder in 2006 has made Europe starting their act by banning skinny models in their shows.

Okay so this modelling job in Brunei may gives the model RM3000 (Br$1,500) for a one day stint but skinny? I beg to differ.
