In an industry which appreciates height and slimness, it's surprising that this doesn't happen more often. 

Alana Zimmer (sort of) appeared  on the Gianfranco Ferré show in Milan wearing a black V-neck dress which revealed her protruding bones, flat chest and oversized head. With dark eye make-up, pale skin and slicked back hair, the overall effect was jarring.

And scary. And ugly. And – probably most importantly – worrying.

It's a wonder she got the job at all, considering that in 2006, Milan banned models with a BMI of less than 18.5. Good move, I thought – until this?

I get that it’s difficult to keep track of each and every model's height/weight ratio, but I can’t see how someone as – dare I say – anorexic as Alana appears to be could slip through.

This is one model who has probably been eating cotton balls to feel full. Just looking at her makes me crave a burger.
