Twiggy To Starlets: Start Eating

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Twiggy is known as the stick thin supermodel of the swinging sixties, but the fashion icon thinks today’s celebrities have taken the “thin is in” philosophy too far.

In fact, Twiggy is “terribly worried” about starlets like Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan and believes they owe it to their public to eat.

Says Twiggy: “It’s affecting all the young girls who want to look and be like them.”

She says its only natural for teenage girls to worship their idols and that “at some point every girl wishes to be a model like Kate Moss” which she says isn’t good for “the health of the Western world.”

The notoriously slim model says while she was famous for being thin she “was always healthy” and never binge dieted, pointing out “it’s in my genes.”

Twiggy begins her second season as a judge on America’s Next Top Model on September 20, and is quick to add that show host Tyra Banks makes sure to “keep an eye on the girls and what they eat” throughout the entire process.
