Allegra Versace Near Death

This picture of Allegra Beck, daughter of Donatella Versace, wearing a nasogastric feeding tube, sparked rumors that the $600 million heiress is near death. Yesterday, it was reported that Allegra is hospitalized in LA. Today, they say she is not hospitalized but rather getting treatment at home. Allegra, you are a strong girl and our hearts and prayers go out to you. This should be a wakeup call to the fashion industry that promoting this unrealistic ideal of women is dangerous and that we should have models who are of a normal body weight on the runway.

This holocaust/famine victim ideal is dangerous to all of the women who are subjected to it. We need to start showing womanly bodies as examples of fashionable women. Between the models literally keeling over from anorexia on the runway to Mary Kate Olsen, Kate Bosworth, Nicole Richie, and Rachel Zoe, girls in the spotlight are literally starving themselves to death. We need to rethink our values. Stop buying movie tickets for movies that promote this anorexic ideal. Stop buying clothes from designers who feature anorexic models. Then the industry that promulgates this misogynistic ideal will rethink the damage it is doing to women.

It just makes me sad there her own mother waited for it to get this bad to get her help. I think most of us will be paying attention to the models for Versace's next runway show...and hopefully it will be healthy looking women to promote a better body image.

Nicky:

She was so beautiful and what has she done with herself??!!

Anonymous:

She's not a model, she inherited a fortune, so there's not really much pressure on her to be anorexic for professional purposes, if you know what I mean. I think it's a combination of the fashion industry and Allegra's own personal issues as a result of having so much money and so little true friends, that have contributed towards her being anorexic.

sins:

Power to the people is, is not a good idea

Drivers who run red lights should be punished severly
