    I wouldn't say that Giselle is curvy, she is a scrawny stick....she's a liar and shell keep lying. I bet you if she stop her work out routines she would start gaining weight, but whatever.

    The fashion industry should bring back average looking models, like back in the 90's. Cindy, Claudia, Rachel, etc....they were average looking women with curves, but yet, managed to be thin. Not sick looking like they do now. It's ridiculous and not attractive.

    But it's not like my family wasn't supportive...they were in denial and no one confronted me until it was too late...

    I'm not saying anything like 'Oh if you have a sucky family life you will most likely develop an eating disorder!'

    No...I'm just saying that it seems in a lot of eating disorder cases the sufferer has come from a dysfunctional family or has experienced trauma of some kind...whether it be abuse, rape, etc...

    But not ALWAYS...so don't get the wrong idea please...
    totally agree. it's too easy to blame the whole thing on the fashion industry. sure, it doesn't help, but it's overly simplistic to think it is the sole culprit. it's like blaming tv and video games for kids being violent and not looking at what's going on at home...

    I saw a snippet of an interview with Gisele right after the Colcci fashion show that closed the Fashion Rio event. She made some pretty good points and what she said there was more complete and consistent. However, it was a TV interview and I don't have the transcript.

    Didnt she end up getting a nose/boob/job. So she wasn't born with it either.
