Tyra Banks Asks: What Is Too Thin?
Former model and host of “America’s Next Top Model” Tyra Banks discusses the problems that arise when young girls are bombarded with images of anorexic models.
It’s common knowledge in the modeling world that if you’re bigger than a size 4, you need to either lose weight or find a different job. Tyra Banks is trying to change that. She says that when models are anorexic, they aren’t just hurting themselves; they are hurting all of the young girls who look up to them and aspire to be like them. When companies hire models that are obviously too thin, they are sending the message that emaciation is beautiful, and this leads to eating disorders. Watch to see what else Banks has to say about the fashion industry today.
