Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels


Kate Moss is no stranger to controversy –  24 hour coke binges, crack-head rock star boyfriends, interrupting interviews…but is she really to blame for the rise in eating disorders in the UK?

Moss is a bit of a diva, storming out of the GQ awards being the most recent example of this:

In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily Moss made the statement, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels”.  It has since completely spiraled out of context and everyone with an opinion about models/fashion/eating disorders has jumped on the ‘we hate Moss’ bandwagon.

The Sun – a great beacon of righteousness –  called her a “shocker” and Denise Van Outen said: “Kate Moss is talking out of her size-zero backside.”

However the tabloid pages are full of skinny women and even though they actively promote this unobtainable body shape, The Sun has the audacity to try and blame Moss for anorexic women, everywhere.

The media loves talking about skinny women. Celebrities are condemned for being too thin, and on the next page scrutinised for their orange peel legs – and the public love it.

I am not a huge fan of the Mosster myself but this backlash is ridiculous. Yes the statement was very un-pc but what else do we really expect. Moss is successful because of her waif like figure and beautiful looks. Is she really going to tell us her motto is, “I love Carbs” or something?

The Sun said Moss’s statement was “everything that is wrong with the fashion world.” However we know models are skinny and most starve themselves to stay that way – this is not news.

The Sun’s hate campaign against Moss has even moved to Westminster.

Liberal Democrat MP Lembit Opik has ‘declared war‘ on Moss, according to The Sun, and intends to make her a case example in fighting against eating disorders in the country.

“It is madness to have an industry that promotes being dangerously underweight as a positive and eating disorders as a good fashion statement,” Opik told the paper.

Critics from all angles have condemned Moss’s comments. She’s been around for ages and knows the fashion industry inside out – as a role model she is therefore potentially influencing millions of young women across the world. Alice May’s blog, General Decay, details the reaction to this statement and the possible effect it will have on vulnerable women.

But is Moss really a role model? and are young women so naive that they would take something she says as fact?

Katie Green, a former Ultimo model, who launched the Say No To Size Zero campaign with Opik, said, “There are 1.1 million eating disorders in the UK alone.”

Eating disorders are a serious problem and more needs to be done.

Moss doesn’t do interviews for a reason – because she might say something as idiotic as this. It’s clear why she is famous for her looks and not her intellect but blasting her for this comment is pointless and clearly just a self-promotion tactic for certain tabloid papers.

    I don’t think women are that naive to adopt her lifestyle, and I don’t think that seeing a skinny woman makes an eating disorder. And yes, the fact that models starve themselves is not news, but does it make it healthy or something we shouldn’t speak out against?

    I’m also wondering if you’ve ever had an eating disorder. You might feel differently. I don’t know. Again, I think a combo of things – genetics, the enviroment, and a women’s mental health creates a disorder, not a model…but she ain’t exactly pushing women’s lib ahead 20 years.
