28 Year Old Model Dies of Anorexia
The use of seriously underweight models has been a pretty hot button issue in the fashion industry recently, a lot of that is due to one particular model: Isabelle Caro.
Caro made headlines when she posed nude in a series for the 2007 ad campaign encouraging designers to use models with a healthy body weight. The ads were created with the support of the Italian Ministry of Health, and were displayed during fashion week in Milan. Caro also appeared with Jessica Simpson on her show The Price of Beauty.
It was announced yesterday that Caro died from complications of her Anorexia at the age of 28. While the announcement was made yesterday, those close to the model say she actually passed away in mid-November.
