Sandy Dumont flies to Hamilton’s defense with her comment:
Too many models have destroyed their heath to be abnormally thin for ridiculous, obsessive fashion designers.
When I worked as a model many years ago, I noticed that all of us models ate like truck drivers; yet we were all a size six – which is now a size four. Every model I ever met throughout the country and Europe said the same: Once you begin “starving” the body to be thinner than it should, the health suffers.
Sometimes the damage is irreversible.
I hope this matter with Ralph Lauren firing Filippa Hamilton will bring fashion designers to their senses so they will stop destroying the health of young women.
