paris doesn't want ali michael

"It's hard to imagine Miss Michael, a willowy, 5-foot-9-inch teenager, being told her legs are too fat. Last season, Miss Michael made herself sick keeping her weight down, said her mother. Miss Michael's reward was to be heralded as the next supermodel. "
--Wall Street Journal

Sigh. The rapidly growing story is that Ali Michael, 17 year old model du jour, was sent home from the Fall 08 Paris shows, because she gained five pounds. The only show she walked in over there was the Yohji Yamamoto show. Quite a departure from the Parisian runways she walked in last year, which included Dior, Chanel, Lanvin, Christian Lacroix. It's all sorts of heartwrenching, no matter how omnipresent concave models are. I mean, in the picture at left, look at the Lily Donaldson (I had to look it up on style.com to make sure) in the pink dress next to Ali, leaning over. Ouch.
