Spanish Fashion Show Bans Over-thin Models

A major fashion show in the Spanish capital Madrid has excluded extremely thin models for fear of encouraging eating disorders.The Pasarela Cibeles show, which takes place from September 18 to 22, announced that models must have a body weight index - weight divided by the square of the height - of at least 18. A model measuring 1.75 metres, for instance, must weigh at least 56 kilogrammes. Lights and make-up will also be used to make models look healthy, according to organizers. The daily El Mundo said 30 percent of applicants were excluded from the show. "Thinness is not beauty, but shows some kind of deficiency," Madrid official Concha Guerra said.Even the Senate recommended promoting healthier-looking fashion images in 1999.
