Dear New York Fashion Show,

I have a suggestion: Why not use girls from Third World countries for your runway shows? You wouldn't have to feed them any more than you do the current models, and you'd be giving them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You'd be helping impoverished girls, highlighting the troubles of their native countries, and holding an exciting, new kind of fashion show at the same time!

But maybe I just don't understand you and the position of utmost importance you hold in society, and your impressive dedication to fashion, culture and the body as art, and your benevolence to the fashion-ignorant among us, who can't grasp the subtle differences between a delicate, ethereal runway model and a gaunt, starving inhabitant of one of those poor countries over there.

  1. :) Love it, and I totally agree!!!

  2. i think italy or somewhere banned models that are too skinny because one girl fainted from having starved herself for so long or something.
