THE SKINNY A model at Max Azria At the Max Azria show Monday night, hot Parisian DJ Michel Gaubert raised a middle finger to the fashion industry's feeble attempts to encourage "healthy weights" by blaring a tune from British artist Mika.
Strains of "Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)" filled the tent as a troupe of ultra-skinny Flavias and Magdalenas did their thing, prompting laughter from the front row, where un-big It-girls Leigh Lezark, Tinsley Mortimer, and Olivia Palermo looked on.
Sample lyrics: "Big girl, you are beautiful / Walks into the room / Feels like a big balloon / Diet coke and a pizza please."
The song goes on to praise gals with "curves in all the right places."
After the CFDA essentially rejected an initiative to regulate models' weights, opting instead to ban smoking and provide "healthy snacks" backstage, perhaps it's the DJs who'll have to force-feed Snejana.
