NPR recently aired a segment with Robin Givhan and Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive about whether the fashion industry should embrace fantasy or reality, which was really an excuse to talk about skinny models some more. Givhan noted, "I don’t think the average man looks at a male model who has the body type of a 12-year-old and thinks I need to stay at the gym and cut back on my meals to achieve that." Which is exactly where the controversy stems from for women. [BlackBook]
