South Korean supermodel Daul Kim — who was a regular on catwalks in New York, Milan and Paris — was found dead after an apparent suicide last week at her luxury flat in Paris. According to the Daily Telegraph of London, her death was discovered after she left a series of messages on her now closed Blogspot blog — I Like to Fork Myself – saying she was lonely and depressed.
So sad. What a beautiful girl she was. Do you think the fashion industry puts too much pressure on its young models? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about Gemma Ward, who announced last week that she was taking a break from modeling. The press has been relentless recently in posting unflattering pictures of Gemma, who gained weight following the death of her boyfriend, actor Heath Ledger. The girl is gorgeous, no matter how much she weighs.
I guess this is a dark subject for a Sunday evening. But it was on my mind, so I thought I would post it.
