Even more than eating disorders, the fashion industry’s real dirty secret is the sexual abuse of models, male and female, and last week when I spoke to models and editors about the case, the only surprise they expressed was not at what he had done, but that the models had come forward at all.

Yet this was barely reported in the UK, and even the US coverage was pretty limited, certainly compared to that of the PR stunt of the model Molly Elena showing her tummy.

It is impossible to say how common assaults on models by people in the business are because so few are reported, partly for the usual reason assaults often go unreported (a sense of shame on the woman’s part), but also because of some factors specific to the fashion industry: models are often very young; they fear they won’t work again if they “cause a fuss”.

Alberta Molinari è polemica per la modella italiana Elena Molly troppo magra: «Le si vedono le ossa»«La salute è bellezza -commenta qualcun altro – non si dovrebbero pubblicizzare modelli di taglie troppo piccole». «Bellissimi vestiti, ma starebbero meglio a una donna rotonda», scrivono le donne.
