:eek: @ 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

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.

She was beautiful. It's a shame.

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? :confused: :o

Aug 24th, 2006, 05:50 PM
can someone post something that explains whether or not the first pic is fake?
