Salinger would be pissed. It turns out the fashion industry may be responsible for sucking the innocence right out of teenage girls (or is causing them to throw it up). A new study shows that nine out of 10 teenage girls feel pressured to be thin thanks to the uber-emaciated models they see on the runways and advertisements. The majority of these girls would rather see untouched photos in magazines (wouldn’t we all?) and one-third of them have refused to eat in order to lose weight. More than 33 percent of these ladies knew someone who has been diagnosed with an eating disorder while more than one half have forced themselves to throw up food. Sad, sad, sad.

“I’ve always felt, in some ways, like an outsider. But that is the fashion industry. You know how that is. The creative one at the school, the outsider, the goth or the gay guy — whatever it is, they always get made fun of. I feel like they all got together and moved to New York City and made the fashion industry. And here I am. I feel right at home, very much accepted and very happy.”
— Plus-size model Crystal Renn tells V Magazine, in its “curvy issue,” she now feels at home in the industry she says once drove her to live on Diet Coke and sugar-free Jello-O to stay thin. [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »
