Katie Green calls Jourdan Dunn a poster girl for anorexiaDecember 13th, 2008 - 4:12 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 13 (ANI): English model Katie Green has launched a scathing attack on fashion model Jourdan Dunn, calling her a poster girl for anorexia.
Green, who had once been told to lose weight if she wanted a modelling career but refused, was angry at the decision made by the British Fashion Council in naming 18-year-old Dunn as Model of the Year at a glitzy London bash.
I think it is disgusting that Jourdan won, the Sun quoted her as saying.
What kind of message does this send out to young girls, aspiring models and even us normal women.
Jourdan is seriously underweight. I was looking at pictures of her and she looks like a bag of bones. Her legs are like two twigs. I was horrified.
At a size 12 and 5ft 10in I am at the bottom of a healthy body mass index, so if I had lost any weight when asked I would have become medically underweight.
But this girl is 10 times smaller than me so would therefore be seriously unhealthy and underweight.
I think its thoughtless that the British Fashion Council would “crown” a stick-thin rake as their Model of the Year.
Its almost like they are asking for young girls to have eating disorders.
I want to march Jourdan down to her local restaurant and shovel some food down her throat.
Men just don”t find this attractive and neither do any of us real women.
Ultimo would never consider hiring a girl of her size. Its a shame other companies cannot follow suit.
I”d prefer to not be named model of the year if it means being this unhealthily thin, she added. (ANI)
