STARVED FOR STYLE Eliana Ramos

The sister of the Uraguayan model whose death sparked the fashion world's current weight debate has also been found dead.

Model Eliana Ramos, 18, died on Tuesday, apparently of malnutrition, just six months after her sister, Luisel Ramos, 20, collapsed and died of a heart attack at a fashion show. "The girl would not wake up. I went into the house and saw her eyes blank and her knees tucked up," said the girls' grandmother. "This has happened to me twice."

Eliana's agent, Pancho Dotto, said of her death: "It is absurd that people are speaking about anorexia or bulimia in this tragic case. She had never had problems with her diet. It is obvious the sisters' deaths must be due to a genetic problem."
