France Officially Issues Ban On Models Deemed Too Thin

| Filed under: Legal MattersModelsFrancophiliaHealthEating Disorders

France issues ban on overly thin models.

The too-thin model ban is officially in effect in France.

We previously reported that French lawmakers were mulling over banning fashion models that didn't fit a healthy BMI criteria, and now a bill has been voted on and passed by the lower house of parliament!

According to the bill, any model deemed too thin according to the new parameters set forth by the law will not be allowed to work:

"…[M]odels would have to present a medical certificate showing a BMI of at least 18, about 55 kg (121 lb) for a height of 1.75 meters (5.7 feet), before being hired for a job and for a few weeks afterwards."

Moreover, modeling agencies and agents who refuse to follow these new standards will face up to six months in prison or hefty fines reaching up to 75,000 euros ($82,300).

And a second measure states that any website that promotes "excessive thinness by encouraging eating restrictions for a prolonged period of time, resulting in risk of mortality or damage to health" will also face a year in prison or a fine of up to 100,000 euros (approx $110,000).

Wow! France is not messing around with this!

Toss That Salad! Model Suing Restaurant After Allegedly Biting Into A Rock & Cracking Her Teeth!

Salads, when prepared improperly, can be a dangerous thing!!

34-year-old model Carolina Rommel learned this the hard way — or should we say the rock hard way? — when she apparently bit into a rock in her lentil salad and cracked several of her teeth on it while dining at Public in New York in 2011.

She's now suing the restaurant for an unspecified amount, saying the experience put her out of modeling work.

According to her attorney:

"Every time she goes to the dentist she's got a couple of days looking like she just got in a car accident. As a high fashion model, [Rommel's] physical appearance is essential to her ability to work."

Carolina's violent-appearing dentist appointments are allegedly a result of a condition called dermatographic urticaria, which is abnormal skin swelling.

However, the restaurant is surprised by the suit and isn't even convinced Carolina's story is true.

Restaurant owner Dan Rafalin points out:
