Supermodels stay 'Paris thin' by eating tissues
A former Vogue editor tells all the not-so-pretty details about the fashion industry in her controversial new book.
Ever wonder how supermodels stay ultra-skinny, like a walking clothes hanger? Former Australian Vogue editor Kirstie Clements exposes the fashion world's dirty secrets in her new tell-all, "The Vogue Factor: From Front Desk to Editor."
In her controversial memoir, Clements makes some outrageous claims, such as models eat tissues to stay full, starve themselves for days and spend frequent stints on hospital drips, reports the Daily Mail. She also writes that she once spent three days on a shoot with a model and didn't see her eat a single meal — and that on the final day she could barely stand or keep her eyes open.
Clements was fired in May 2012 after 25 years at the magazine.
Tell us: What do you think about the great skinny model weight debate and Clements claims?

Did anyone else hear wedding bells on the Oscars red carpet last night?
Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.

When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage. Here’s how she has elevated that look over the years.

We’re at the tail end of a jam-packed awards season, with the grand finale—the Oscars, duh—just a few days away. We can’t wait to see what our favorite nominees wear—we already know Jennifer Lawrence will step out in a breathtaking Dior, while we hope to see Lupita Nyong’o pick another brilliantly bold monochromatic gown. As for which designer she’ll select—Gucci? Ralph Lauren?—that’s anyone’s guess.
