The fashion industry is more than just selling clothes; it’s about selling an image. A large part of that image for many in this industry is looking tall and thin, reallythin. Many girls think that the only way clothes will look good on them is if they are abnormally skinny. I myself, think that it is very sad when clothes come before the person. These models don't understand how serious this problem is , and how much they are risking. Well there are models out there who, well .. eat! These models take care of themselves and they look toned, fit, and beautiful. We should applaud these models, and girls like Hila Elmalich follow there footsteps.
