The modeling industry has a terrible reputation and it seems a legion of finely tuned, hipster publicists couldn’t correct that.
What with serial airbrushing on covers of the beautiful people, only a certain — shall we say, homogenized-type person — has a future on certain publications and whatever the hell those people wear during “Fashion Week.”
However, the most detrimental stigma to the world of modeling is eating disorders. People to need a waif, or possibly a refugee, to fit in and get noticed. Like I always say, “Stereotypes become a type for a reason.”
And then a model gets caught lifting food at a NYC bodega because she had the munchies. However, it’s what she stole that made news.
