Thursday, December 30th, 2010

It’s difficult for most of us to get our heads round Anorexia and unless you have suffered from it yourself, then you are never really going to understand how it is that anyone can deprive themselves to such a degree that in some instances proves fatal.

Isabelle who became famous after appearing in a controversial ad campaign tagged as “No Anorexia” has sadly was recently reported dead by her family.

The campaign below for Anorexia was paid for by Italian clothing company Flash & Partners to publicize a fashion brand for young women called Nolita and the photograph was taken by Italian photographer Oliviero Toscani.

Flash & Partners said in a statement that Toscani’s aim was “to use the naked body to show everyone the reality of this illness, caused in most cases by the stereotypes imposed by the world of fashion”.

Isabelle Caro who suffered from severe anorexia nervosa had problems since she was 13 years old. Her anorexia was caused by what she called a difficult childhood.

She said: “I had a very complicated childhood, very difficult, very painful. My mother’s big phobia was that I would grow. She spent her time measuring my height. She wouldn’t let me go outside because she’d heard that fresh air makes children grow, and that’s why I was kept at home. It was completely traumatic.”

Below is an interview with Isabelle and Jessica Simpson where Jessica and others are moved to tears.  You will be shocked;
