'America's Next Top Model' judge Twiggy: Too thin models "terrifying"
UPI News Service, 11/19/2006
Former British supermodel and current "America's Next Top Model" judge Twiggy has spoken out against the current trend of waif-like fashion models by calling the concept "terrifying."
Despite having once garnered notoriety for her own ultra-thin figure, Twiggy has criticized the "size zero" trend in the fashion world and placed the blame for it on Hollywood actresses, The Mail on Sunday reported.
"They go on about banning size zero, but I think Hollywood stars are the worst perpetrators," Twiggy said. "Most models are naturally long and gangly, while a lot of these young girls in Hollywood have gone on extreme diets."
