The Danes are the latest to come to the rescue of too-skinny models — albeit about two years after everyone else.
The Danish Fashion Institute, or DAFI — which includes the brands Noa Noa, Georg Jensen, Jens Laugesen and Elite Models among its members — has joined forces with an eating-disorder organization to draw up industry guidelines geared toward promoting the well-being of Danish models. Also, posters have gone up around Copenhagen featuring slogans such as "Eating Is the New Black" and "The Weight of Your Worth Is Not Measured in Kilos."
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
