Adrianne Curry on the skinny model trend

Adrianne Curry, winner of the first series of America's Next Top model, has spoken out on the demands the modeling industry makes on young models. On her myspace blog she writes:

Me on the Big Story. I just recently appeared on The Fox News Channel's Big Story. I gave my opinion on the CRISIS that has been going on in the fashion world AND the entertainment industry. Woman are starving themselves to the point of what looks like near death. I have heard some fashionistas are blaming how thin they are on how young they are. If this is the case, then we need to regulate and unionize this industry! Every other industry that involves CHILDREN is regulated by the goverment, why not this one? Is fashion important enough that we will torture and starve beautiful women just to please it? I cannot even tell you how many times I have been asked to lose weight by my old agency. I am skinny as hell! I was told that my muscles were fat. What is so appealing about skeletal women? Correct me if I am wrong, but most of the greatest Supermodels to date were WOMANLY. They have/had curves! When I would go on go and see's, I would try to shove my "fat ass" into clothes that couldn't even fit a 11 year old! I am 5'10 1/2 and 134 pounds. My waist is 25 inches, hips 35, bust 34. THIS is what the fashion world sees as too big. Now it's spreading to entertainment, and real life. We as a nation need to rise up and make this stop. Thanks for reading my rant! Sadly, the fashion world is littered with problems. I hope the goverment will step in and make sure that they crack down on them.

Edited Note: There are many great people in this industry that also agree with me. There ARE naturally skinny models. Though many models are not skinny by natural means. This is why I love LA. The fashion world of LA appreciate women who are not anorexic looking.

Very refreshing.

Tip c/o Seriously OMG! WTF!
