Isabelle Caro, Model, Anti-Anorexia Campaigner, Dies

Post to Twitter

Daniele Gouzard-Dubreuil Prevot, model Isabelle Caro’s acting teacher, announced that Ms. Caro died (Los Angeles Times obit) last month and was buried November 24. Ms. Caro, who suffered from anorexia, posed for the famous anti-anorexia ad labelled “No Anorexia” in 2007, urging young women to concentrate on a good body image rather than diet to the point of gauntness. She also worked against the campaign Pro-Ana, which maintains that anorexia is a choice. She published her autobiography in 2008. More here from CNN International and here from the BBC. More discussion of pro-ana sites and their impact here in a paper by Grace Overbeke.
