Yves Saint Laurent used to receive a lot of “stones” for using models that were too skinny in his show.
Yves Saint Laurent is one of the most famous and high-end fashion brands in France. However, each Fashion Week season, Yves Saint Laurent attracts attention, not only with the perfect designs but also in the use of models that are too skinny.
Yves Saint Laurent has been criticized for using super skinny models in the Fall – Winter 2019 show. The image of models with tiny bodies has caused a great controversy for the French fashion house. In the photo is Kaia Gerber, she is 1m75 tall but weighs only 40kg.
The models performing in the Yves Saint Laurent show have a very tall figure, but the waist is extremely thin, perhaps less than a hand. Moreover, the costumes are so sophisticated that they seem to be swallowed up in costumes.
Even male models have thin bodies like rice leaves. This made the worldwide fashion-loving community angry with YSL.
The company’s priority to use models with too thin bodies in general will create a psychology of wanting to be selected, long legs will have to fast. Many people even use negative ways such as stitching their tongue, swallowing cotton balls, drinking water throughout the day to get a “standard” body.
The “addicted” beauty originates from Kate Moss. In the 90s, the British long-legged rocked the fashion village with a super-thin body and zero clothing size.
After a lot of struggle, the French modeling committee decided that models must have a BMI of 18 to perform. That means if the beauty is 1m75 tall, they must weigh at least 50kg to qualify.
However, regulation is one thing, and enforcement is another. High-end brands that aim for elegant fashion still favor ultra-thin models. This problem will still be a never-ending underground wave in the world model village.
