Model from infamous anorexia ad dead at 28


Isabelle Caro, the French model who starred in a notorious anti-anorexia campaign shot by Oliviero Toscani, has died at age 28, according to the Associated Press.

She was interviewed for Jessica Simpson's show The Price of Beauty this past March. See that video below.
