zzzzz....whoa, it's NYC fashion week time...where the parties are far more interesting than the shows and the models...and where the local fashion biz "pros" manage to "discover" more mediocre models than anyone thought could possibly exist...any news from the J-Lo show casting?


The NYC "pros" like them naturally anorexic...


THE U.S. will never follow Israel's lead and try to force fashion models to fatten up, say industry experts at New York's Fashion Week. Tel Aviv model agent Adi Barkan has joined with Inbal Gavriely, a member of Israel's parliament, to pass legislation requiring models to undergo health examinations, have their body mass index checked and be certified healthy by a nutritionist before they can work.
But model moguls here say the freedom-loving U.S. government will never infringe on a catwalker's right to starve herself.
"We don't set forth the notion that all girls should be the same size," said IMG Models Senior VP Ivan Bart. "What Christian Dior wants is different from what Sports Illustrated wants. To set a mandate is silly."
"Models are people, but they're hired for a job as mannequins," said Jessica Weinstein, who casts fashion shows for designers Kenneth Cole, Vera Wang and Narciso Rodriguez. "I don't think they should be ill or make themselves sick, but they should be thin."
Kelly Cutrone, who is overseeing casting for 14 shows at Fashion Week, said: "That's why they're models - they're natural phenomenons."


Freedom-loving my ass - wearing a tshirt with a political message can get you arrested in the "land of freedom"...

if the NYC DA - who is too busy attending FW parties probably - demanded that underage models couldn't work legally unless "certified healthy by a nutritionist", many of Ivan Bart's girls would have to look for another job...

"Starving yourself" is a right in freedom-loving NYC - but when the Dior people demand that a mod should lose 10% of her already low weight if she wants to be in their campaign, or when the "moguls" blacklist anyone who chooses not to "starve" herself, it's called something else...

Joke of the week - Mrs "family values" Bush loves the fashion shows...I guess to support the freedom -loving models in starving themselves...

There is about one new model from the NYC shows who I was impressed with. Im not positive of her name but I believe she is also with Brave Models in Milano. Speaking of Milano, Im certainly hoping for some new faces to sprout up during show time!
