1. Victoire Macon Dauxerre
Dauxerre was discovered on the streets of Paris and quickly thrust into the high-pressure vacuum that is the modeling world. Within months, her diet consisted of a meager three apples a day and diet soda, and maybe a small piece of chicken or fish each week. Though she says that she was never instructed to lose weight, the inference was clear. It was only months before she’d shrunken four dress sizes and weighed in at 103 pounds, though she measured 5 feet, 9 inches tall. In her early twenties, Dauxerre even had osteoporosis. In the midst of it all, she quit the industry and went on to write a book about her experiences. Dauxerre is back to donning a size 8 (US) and trying to prevent others from reliving her experiences.
2. Zayn Malik
According to his book, “Zayn,” the musician began skipping meals as a consequence of his hectic schedule. The disorder wasn’t related to concerns about his figure, he assured readers, but it did become a serious point of concern. We’re happy Zayn seems to be doing much better!
