the great weight debate.

Does anyone really model, Allie, from Whitney Port's the City? Any thoughts on the picture above? We would be appalled if the model in this dress had a muffin top - no one would buy it for fear of looking like her or being considered plus size. But the second we deem someone too thing, all hell breaks looks. What are you thoughts on Allie's size? I find that for online shopping - a model with realistic proportions deems better than overtly thin (think runway model). She's a beautiful girl - I just find the ridicule so sad. It's always something isn't it...

Here is the info reported by stylist.com - you'll find the link above.

It seems that the skinny model debate has moved from the runway to the computer screen.

A model on the Revolve Clothing website has caused concern among several customers because of her ultra-skinny frame, reports Styleite.

The model in question sports a black leather and mesh dress by BCBG on Revolve's Website (and also appears in several other looks from the label). However, instead of commenting on the garment, the girl's super-thin appearance has caused furious and concerned customers to leave a slew of comments on the site, reflecting emotions ranging from disgust ("Absolutely gross. Her head even looks too big for her body!") to disappointment ("She is emaciated...why are you supporting this on your website?").

The model is reported to be Allie Crandell, who appeared on "The City," and was told by Kelly Cutrone that she was too thin in Season One of the show.

The backlash against Crandell's image has prompted the Revolve team to take action. They posted a message saying that they "are working closely with both the model and her agent to get her to a healthier size. She won't be appearing in any of our new product batches or in any of our fashion editorial photos moving forward until the issue is adequately addressed."
