Lily Cole was photographed yesterday in her costume as Polly in the remake of the St Trinians movie. But the reason I posted this pic is because dear Lily fills her smashing tank top admirably.
During London Fashion Week the Evening Standard has run front page photos of Lily showing her sticky legs with a screamer along the lines of “Super thin model shocker”. Lily may indeed have the legs of a daddy long legs but she’s no bag of bones – as any editor who has seen her splendid bosom on show on the catwalk can testify.
I was a super skinny, thin legged, large bosomed teen who ate like a horse (sigh) so I find this persecution particularly irritating as I know you can be shaped like Lily & be thoroughly healthy. Gah. There really is no hope for a sensible debate on eating disorders in the fashion industry when the media itself fans the flames erroneously.
