H&M under fire for using model so thin she's been called 'corpse-like'
UK Daily Mail ^ | March 9, 2012 | Deborah Arthurs

High Street store H&M has come under fire today for its use of a model some have said is so thin as to be 'corpse-like'.

The model was used in PR material for the clothing giant's Marni campaign, the latest high profile designer collaboration to be launched by the firm.

But some have complained that 26-year-old Aymeline Valade looks 'ready to collapse'.

This may sound insensitive but I have had relatives die after a long bout with cancer... who had more weight on them than this model. I personally don’t know one man (or woman for that matter) that finds the emaciated look as anything but sick/sad. IMHO.

That outfit is hideous and cheap looking. The model has a very unhealthy appearance, and also seems at least ten years older than the 26 she claims.

I’m a great fan of thin (Think Gabrielle Anwar), but this woman doesn’t look at all attractive.

She WILL be corpse-like, as in dead, sooner than later.

The anexoric-bulimic lifestyle of skinny models takes a huge toll on their cardiac muscles and eventually they have heart attacks and die.

Gabrielle Anwar is RIPPED! She's gotta be 2% body fat, and that's all in her chest. I have a female cousin, Air Force vet, whose body fat is so low that they couldn't measure it, but she'd beat the living Hell out of anyone!

Matter of fact, funny story, she's going to be one my fiancée's bridesmaids. When they went to get measured for dresses, the tailor was flabbergasted when they measured her all around as a size 0... except her hips, which put her in a size 8! She's not emaciated at all, just blessed with child-bearing hips.

This model needs to go here:

Either that, or a publicity stunt. Or both.

It’s indefensible, regardless.

“YUCK! More evidence fashion is run by Homos who hate women.”

If they didn’t hate women they wouldn’t be homos. Whenever I hear a woman complain about fashion I tell them what you said.

By the way Twiggy was way ahead of her time.

“... it doesn’t help that the clothes are UGLY, too”

I am wondering if she was wearing a beautiful evening gown... if she still wouldn’t look sick. I don’t think the model could be dressed in ANYTHING and the viewer say, “that’s lovely”.

If you want thin and French but still attractive there’s Audrey Tautou.

Gabrielle Anwar is in great condition. I have no doubt that she eats well but I doubt she dines on lettuce leaves. You need to eat the right balance of protein and fats to grow muscles like that.

This poor girl has no muscles just skin stretched over bone.

I would assume that as part of her regimine in keeping employed as a actress she has a daily workout schedule that would make most of us fall over and puke.

I don’t care what they are asserting, I will bet everything that she’s not a day over 16 years of age. Most pictures of models you see in print ads are photo-shopped pictures of underaged girls between 13 snd 17. It’s child abuse.

Probably!

To be in that kind of shape you have to devote a great deal of time to it. That is not an "hour a day three days a week" body.

By the way Twiggy was way ahead of her time.

One problem about using Twiggy as a thin avatar is that the popular image is of the 16 year old, before she lost the baby fat.

(No. that's not right.)

OK. At 26 she was Emma Watson thin, not Twiggy thin. And for the last half of her life she has been English thin, not Hollywood thin (and seriously hawt)

As an adult, she's been eating right.

Thats how Twiggy got her start, but it didn’t last long..she also looked like an anoroxic...back in the 60 or 70’s. Don’t remember which I was busy raising a family..

C’est Amélie!

I fell in love with her when I first saw Amélie and thought she was great in Little Devils.

Gotta dust them off to watch with the lady.
