Description

The standards of beauty have drastically changed over the past century. What used to be socially acceptable in the media is now the exact opposite. The media tends to promote a negative body image to the public which is taking its toll on young people everywhere.

Quotes from the Fashion Industry… "I have a lot of A-list celebrities as clients, both actresses and models, and what they are telling me is that the pressure to be thin has never been greater. Why? Because whoever is thinner gets the job, and the competition is enormous.” - Dr. Ira Sacker, eating disorder specialist and the coauthor of Dying to Be Thin "This unnatural thinness is a terrible message to send out. The people watching the fashion shows are young, impressionable women" - Frederique van der Wal, host of Cover Shot on TLC “’ You need to lose more weight. The look this year is anorexia. We don't want you to be anorexic but that's what we want you to look like.’” - what the fashion industry told model Coco Rocha "The fashion industry's promotion of beauty as meaning stick thin is damaging to young girls' self image and to their health. Young girls aspire to look like the catwalk models. When those models are unhealthily underweight, it pressurizes girls to starve themselves to look the same." - Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell
