"I've hidden myself and covered myself for too long. Now I want to show myself fearlessly, even though I know my body arouses repugnance. I want to recover because I love life and the riches of the universe. I want to show young people how dangerous this illness is."
French Comedienne Isabelle Caro
, 27, an anorexic who weighs just 68 pounds, was displayed on Milan billboards (NSFW)
for fashion designer Nolita
as the city celebrated fashion week. The prevalence of eating disorders within the fashion industry

has complained that since Caro isn't a model herself it proves "even people who take no notice of fashion get anorexic."
