France has passed a law that prohibits “excessively thin” models. Italy, Spain, and Israel already have passed such laws. The irony is that France prides itself on freedom of expression. Being slender could be considered a form of self-expression. Where will these cadaverous, zombie models go to find work? One choice may be England who back in the mid-1960s welcomed Twiggy (real name was Lesley Lawson), a scrawny model who went on to be voted British Woman of the Year in 1966. A better choice, of course, is the USA where we have “right-to-work” laws and frown on discrimination based on appearances. In fact, the trend in the USA is to add more plus sized models to the catwalk. I predict that many svelte models will migrate to the US and find work in the modeling industry. I don't think even the Republicans opposed to immigation would mind.
