Should This Model Be On The LFW Catwalks?

22 February 2011

Sam Cam’s face said it all at Erdem’s show yesterday. Though in a prime spot on the FROW of one of her favourite designers, she couldn’t even crack at smile… and we think we can see why.

In the same year that Isabelle Caro, the French model, died of anorexia, you’d think designers would be even keener to cast "real women" – or not, by the evidence of Erdem’s line up.

The PM’s wife – and fashion week ambassador – who earlier this week said she is ‘passionate about fashion’ looked less than impressed by this shrunken size zero, who also walked for other designers during London Fashion Week this season.

Meanwhile, eating disorder charities have spoken out in criticism.

'There's a backwards step here, and it's a shame,’ said Susan Ringwood, chief executive of eating disorder charity Beat told the Daily Mail ‘We had hoped that the tide had turned, so this is a disappointing move.’

Do you think this model should be appearing on the LFW catwalks? You tell us…
