When we saw Brooke Shields at the Cynthia Rowley party at Gagosian Shop last night, we asked her for her take on the whole overly thin models debate — and got a somewhat surprising response. “I’ve never been skinny, so I never fit into that category,” Shields told us. Still, she understands people’s concerns. “I think we keep needing to educate our children who aren’t models and inform them that the ideal is [to just be] healthy ... I never did runway, though. I was always doing the magazines when the girls were doing the runway.”
