Uruguayan model dies on the catwalk




A young Uruguayan model died of heart failure while participating in a fashion show during Fashion Week in Montevideo (Uruguay), according to officials at the hotel where the show was held.

22 year-old Luisel Ramos felt ill after walking the catwalk, fainted on her way to the dressing room and died in spite of the medical attention she received from a mobile hospital unit, sources told EFE.
The doctors who treated her diagnosed her with heart failure.

The young woman's father told police that the model had gone several days without eating.

@ that first pic..

I think if it were real, they would have photoshopped it abit.. since most models have eating disorders to keep their faces skinny, not their bodies

Is that for real?

It's just sick. You might as well be dressing up a skeleton.

Debate over Uruguayan model's cause of death

17:13 H | Topics: Controversia - Fashion - Health - Uruguay



Last week we told you about a Uruguayan model, Luisel Ramos, who died of a heart attack while on the catwalk during Fashion Week in Montevideo. According to her father, the model had been starving herself for days, but now others have come forward to dispute that allegation, including her boyfriend who had dined with her the day night before the fashion show.

...amongst the pain of yesterday, after Luisel's burial, her boyfriend Hairo Berrondo clarified that this [the starving] wasn't true. Berrondo said that he has known her for ten years, and that he's been her boyfriend for two and a half.

"The night before the fashion show we went out to eat pizza, with two friends of hers...she had a diet soft drink but ate well," he said.

In response to the different versions of the story being circulated by the media, the model's boyfriend confirmed that "[Luisel] was neither anorexic nor bulimic."

Berrondo also dicsounted the possibility of her doing drugs or being an alcoholic. "She didn't even drink beer," he said.

According to Spain's 20 Minutos, an autopsy proved that the model did not suffer from an eating disorder nor was she addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Well, having an eating disorder your face usually is like puffed out. I don't think it's for the face as much as the body, the body is what matters really.

Anyway, the first pic is fake.
If she did die from not eating that's tragic.

Meh♥

Regardless of whether the actual model has an eating disorder, why would anybody create a pic that looks like the first? Is that high fashion?
