"I think it's outrageous, I understand they want to set this tone of healthy beautiful women, but what about discrimination against the model and what about the freedom of the designer," said [Cathy] Gould, Elite's North America director, adding that the move could harm careers of naturally "gazelle-like" models.
Gould is outraged by organizers of Madrid's fashion week, who plan to turn away models falling below a certain skeletal body-fat rating as determined by on-site medics. So far, they've kept out 30% of the waifs from last year's anorexia fiesta. First Australia, now Spain! The fatties are battering their massive bulk against the spindly gates of fashion! Won't somebody save the gazelles!
