After a one day trip back to New York to walk in Anna Sui’s show last night (backstage pics HERE) I’m now back in Paris for work today! A little tired…Can you believe today marks an entire year since I woke up to this newspaper headline at my front door? What a crazy few days where I was in the middle a media storm over this manufactured controversy. Some advised me to keep quiet and wait it out but at the time I decided to take the opportunity to speak my mind on the issue in an open letter I wrote a few days later. Its ironic, to say the least, that almost exactly a year later I’m now reading a series of blogs like THIS - again about my size, but now on the other end of the spectrum. One or two unflattering photos do not constitute an eating disorder. Neither does gaining a pound or two one season over the last constitute me “too fat”. I assure you, I am happy, fit and healthy as ever. I have to laugh though… its sort of ridiculous that the difference between being “too fat for the runway” and “unhealthily thin” is about 2 or 3 pounds these days. Its a bizarre world we live in…In case you didn’t catch it the first time, here’s my thoughts on models health issues. I’m still very proud of this piece and it remains at the core of my values.CLICK
