In her book, ''The Vogue Factor’, she has detailed disturbing methods fashion models use to maintain their shape — from starving models on IV drips to photoshopping models to “get rid of bones” and make them appear healthier.
Clements told Entertainment Tonight that some models even eat tissue to stay thin, even though they swell in the stomach.
Clements told the channel that while most people accuse editors of photoshopping images for the girls to look slimmer, on occasion, things used to turn the other way around.
Clements’ sudden departure from Vogue last year, after 10 years of leading the magazine, was part of a “cultural change” at the company. She was replaced by former Harper’s Bazaar editor Edwina McCann.
In the book, she discusses how eating disorders are rampant in modeling, but how editors never know what’s really going on with the models they work with.
“That’s the insidious part of eating disorders,” Clements told ET.
Clements insists that the book is “larger than just skinny models.”
“[It] has a lot of truths about what happens in fashion publishing,” she said. “It’s an honest account of what goes on.”
