Fat police target supermodel Karolina Kurkova

January 9, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Recently voted Sexiest Woman in the World by E!, Karolina Kurkova, has come under scrutiny and criticism by the Brazilian media for appearing too fat on the runway.

An article in a Brazilian paper about the leggy 5’11” Kurkova described how “shocked” the audience was when she appeared looking uncharacteristically chubby with “cellulite on her butt.”

The 24-year-old Czech was reportedly kept off pre-show press materials for the 2008 Victoria’s Secret fashion show because the final decision to let her strut her stuff wasn’t made until the last minute.

The fashion industry has been under fire recently for its promotion of skinny models and pledged to adopt a more healthy image for young girls who often force themselves to become thin in the battle to secure a place among the top tier.

Kurkova’s self admitted  diet is comprised mainly of fresh vegetables, salad and protein. But for several weeks leading up to last year’s Miami show, an inside source said that the supermodel cut carbs altogether, and worked out for hours in an effort to keep up with other super-slim model. Reportedly she became exhausted and didn’t get down to where she wanted to be.

According to an insider, Kurkova discovered she suffers from the thyroid disorder hypothyroidism, which interferes with the body’s metabolism joining the ranks of 27 million Americans.

So Kurkova may have put on some weight, but calling her “fat” is not a great image for impressionable young girls.

    c’mon everybody knows models can’t be fat and have cellulite and well to be fat and call her “skinny” isn’t good for impressionable young girls neither. Both extremes are unhealthy fat and anorexic…
