Thin models

1) The ban on "skinny" models performing in shows, instituted by fashion show organizers in Madrid after a model died during a show in South America last month, sent shivers around the world of haute.
2) BMI is a body mass index.
3) BMI resulting number shoul be between 18.5 and 24.9.
4) The average runway model is estimated to be 5 feet 9 inches tall and to weigh in at 110 lbs.
5) The show wants to project an image of beauty, elegance and health. The limits set by the World Health Organisation and they were persons above 175 cm tall and weighing less, or much less, than 55 kg. A decision was taken to exclude models who paraded gaunt, emaciated styles. The show also banned makeup that made models appear wan.
But many people in and out of the fashion world believe the new ban is long overdue, and should have been considered even before 22-year-old Uruguayan model Luisel Ramos died of heart failure after stepping off a runway during Fashion Week in Montevideo.
6) GAUNT- is excessively thin and angular .
emaciated- is to cause to lose flesh so as to become very thin.
wan -- is suggestive of poor health.
7) In the English system, it is calculated by dividing weight in pounds by height in inches squared, and multiplying that total by 703.

I like this article coz its very common problem in our world. Young girls look at this beautiful faces and ideal figures and want to be the same. Many gays want to have the same standard girlfriend and they like all this celebrities. Thats why gays look for thin and cute girlfriend but not all of the girls are thin. That couse a lot of problems in a girls mind. There is a big problem in Australia with boob jobs, very many girls, espesially young girls do it. After Big Brother show it has increased. Girls dont feel confidend abou them and their bodies. Girls!! Love your body as it is!!!
