In a Today Show segment on vanity sizing, More editor Lesley Jane Seymour described the lengths fashion editors must go to protect the fragile egos of celebrities: "When we go to shoots it's all about the ego. If a celebrity says she's a size 8 and we know she's not we cut the sizes out because we know she won't put it on if it says it's a 10."
Remember: The six covergirls shown at left are but an arbitrary sample set. It's possible Seymour was talking about ladies who weren't on the cover! Like the women of Chernobyl. The superficial size queens have got to be the women of Chernobyl, right? [Today Show via The Cut, More]
