Isabelle Caro dies

French model Isabelle Caro, whose shocking billboard ad warned of the dangers of anorexia, has died at age 28. Daniele Dubreuil-Prevot, Isabelle Caro's acting teacher, said that Caro had been ill for a long time. The billboard, shot by Italian photographer Oliviero Toscani, is pictured here.

Isabelle Caro had been battling anorexia nervosa since she was 13 years old, and had been hospitalized twice. At one point, she slipped into a coma from which doctors predicted she would not recover.

Isabella Caro passed away on November 17, but those close to her were able to keep the news secret for over a month.

(and lots of webs)

From wikipedia: "Isabelle Caro died on 17 November 2010 in Tokyo, Japan, of causes related to her anorexia. Her family only reported Isabelle's death to the media on December 29, 2010."


How do you feel about her death?
I hope this helps us all understand that it is impossible to maintain a low weight for a long time.
There are only two possible ways: recovery or death.

Please, lovely members never give up ♥
