To Alastair Macaulay: ANOREXIA KILLS
alastair macaulay's rabid critique of two new york city ballet dancer's physiques ferments into a much more pungent rot with the death of model/actor isabelle caro. perhaps the world's most visible anorexic, ms. caro stunned fashion world with her appearance in toscani's "no anorexia" ad campaign in 2007. her battles to overcome anorexia gained global attention in recent years as she graciously allowed the world to see the ravages of her disease with exceptional transparency and grace. she will be missed. she will be missed. perhaps, mr. macaulay and the new york times will see that anorexia kills and that frailty should not be a requirement to dance ballet.
