What happens when you get ousted as editor from one of the world’s most prestigious fashion magazines? Well, you write about it, of course, revealing — among other distasteful details — that models are eating tissues to curb hunger pangs.
Longtime Vogue Australia Editor Kirstie Clements was fired in May after 25 years of service at the magazine. Now, she has released a tell-all book called”The Vogue Factor,” an insider’s view that exposes, unashamedly, the cutthroat and chaotic facade behind the glossy covers of a leading magazine.
In her new book, Clements claims models still regularly starve themselves to stay super skinny and some resort to eating tissues to help them feel full. Clements quotes an unnamed Russian model who told her over lunch that her roommate was a fit model, “so she is in hospital on a drip a lot of the time.” A fit model, Clements says, is the body used by top designers and ateliers around which the clothes are designed.
