The famished body is banned for Fashion Week in Madrid

This is an exciting development in the world of fashion. Perhaps the public is now willing to encourage healthier body images in women? What are your thoughts?

I loved this ban on un-healthily-skinny models! Check out my response from when the article first came out here.

I think it is wonderful because it is a step in the right direction towards portraying a healthy living style, as opposed to one of starving yourself to look "good". It is so nice to finally see our society speak out against the obsession with being ultra-thin, which, as we all know, is way out of hand.
