Cindy Crawford, who once ruled fashion pages, is appalled by the onslaught of 'skinny models' that today's women have to face. She has advised female consumers to stop buying magazines featuring stick thin models because she believes they have the "power" to change the body image stereotypes that are currently being sold out to them.
The 43-year-old former supermodel had recently confessed that she wouldn't have made it big in the world of glamour these days because she had too "normal" a body to succeed in today's size zero obsessed fashion industry.
And now she has urged women to dump magazines promoting unhealthy lifestyles.
"We as the consumers, we as the women, have the power. If you don't like something, don't buy it. Don't buy the magazine if you don't like what it says. If you don't like the image a brand is putting out, don't buy it," the Daily Express quoted Crawford, as saying.
She added: "What I really don't agree with is people who complain about it but still support it. You're giving your power away. If people don't want skinny models, stop buying the magazine with the skinny model, and believe me those magazines will change fast. It's business."
