About Time Somebody Spoke Up

Finally somebody with some common sense in the fashion world:

MADRID, Spain - Spain’s top fashion show has turned away a slew of models on grounds they are too skinny — an unprecedented swipe at body images blamed for encouraging eating disorders among young people.

Organizers of the pageant, known as the Pasarela Cibeles, used a mathematical formula to calculate the models’ body mass index — a measure of their weight in relation to their height — and 30 percent of the women flunked, said the Association of Fashion Designers of Spain.

Runway models like that have never been attractive to me. My wife and I watch Project Runway, and the models are all way too twiggy for me. I prefer a bit more meat on the bones of my women, thank you.
