Curves N The Newz: Saint Laurent Ad Banned for “Unhealthily Underweight Model” – Yahoo Style

Saint Laurent Ad Banned for “Unhealthily Underweight Model”.

I am not sure where to begin on this one. Obviously the lighting had quite a bit to do with the “otherworldly” thinness of the model’s body but this image is intense. Thankfully the Ads have been pulled but they again fuel the our fashion industry’s distorted idea of an “ideal”.

…the model’s pose and lighting paid “particular focus to the model’s chest, where her rib cage was visible and appeared prominent, and to her legs, where her thighs and knees appeared a similar width, and which looked very thin, particularly in light of her positioning and the contrast between the narrowness of her legs and her platform shoes.” – Yahoo!
