PIC OF THE DAY: LONDON FASHION WEEK – FAIL!

Why does the fashion industry continue to encourage this madness???? Does it give them some sort of a thrill to put young women on the catwalk who clearly have eating disorders? I’m guessing that the model below just lives off a diet of lettuce and water. She looks terrible. Major fail LFW! Click HERE to view more pics…
