Some young people today are conditioned by the myth of appearing and by the fees imposed by newspapers, TV and the media that demand virtual beauties without originality. These young people think that having a beautiful presence is important to achieve prestige, happiness, love and success. All of this can lead to adopting incorrect eating habits, causing psychological diseases such as anorexia and bulimia. Eating disorders are much more widespread than you think: today they are still partially submerged problems.
At the top of the charts among the best sellers of recent years is Victoire Dauxerre’s autobiographical book-diary “Always more lean”, in which the supermodel denounces anorexia in the world of fashion, paying attention to thinness in an exaggerated way where it is ordered to go to size 36. Victoire says – no one asks you to stop eating but you simply have to be able to get into the clothes you are given. So the only choice you have is to lose weight. The purpose of the speech is made so that no one can be accused of inciting anorexia. She feels like a puppet in the hands of those who make up, comb and photograph her. No one pays attention to her person (no one asks her how are you?) But only to her body. This book tells about the difficult relationship with food that many women have in order to feel accepted by the context. Despite her young age, the former supermodel realized that she was dying because she had become anorexic and courageously quit her modeling job to start her life from scratch. She called herself “I was a walking dead”. According to Victoire, it is necessary to change the female image that society imposes, it is an aesthetic question but also a public health one because many young people identify themselves with the wrong aesthetic models. Unfortunately, still today nothing has changed and in the world of fashion they are all responsible and continue to kill the female body.
