Veruschka Didn't Like Modeling in Giles's Spring 2011 Show

Veruschka Didn't Like Modeling in Giles's Spring 2011 Show

>> 71-year-old Veruschka modeled for Giles Deacon's Spring 2011 show last month, but it sounds like she didn't much enjoy it: "I didn’t like the makeup in the show, and didn’t think much of the dress." She says she felt like a gimmick, and added that designers no longer have the skills to dress women who are not children with bodies that look like ironing boards. When it was pointed out that her star turn in Blow-Up perpetuated the super-thin model look, she replied, "I was in my 20s when I made the movie and found success. We were women, not children. [Yes,] I was tall and I was thin. But just before shooting started I had been on a fashion assignment in Mexico and became terribly sick from drinking the water. I lost so much weight and was really ill and weak when I made the movie." [Daily Mail]
