The funny thing about today's cattle call casting was that the girls were all hanging out in the lobby of the Mondrian Hotel in bikinis. The girls were checking each other out, as well as guests and staff practically walking into walls with all these beautiful women half naked in the lobby. It was so random but so funny to observe and be part of! A teenage boy's dream!

Victoria's Secret wanted to meet with me -- I almost fainted at the thought! It was a girl's dream come true. I barely slept and I woke up with the world's largest pimple, probably the biggest one I have ever had. I was told to strip down and stand against this white wall where multiple photos were taken of me while these two ladies went through my portfolio.

Like the ancient Greek poet Sappho, I revere women. Rubenesque. Skinny. Tall. Short. Old. Young. Hourglass. Pear. Every woman. But when I contemplate fashion's cult of perfection and the rise of eating disorders and so-called "fat-shaming," I think beauty standards have become a form of tyranny.

Do Hair and Make-Up Models Need to Be Runway Thin?

I was recently at a beauty-related event where models were used to show off the product. Most of the models there were of the fashion variety -- very tall and extremely thin. I've always pondered on why it is. After all, the models there were present for beauty demonstrations, whether it be hair or make-up, not there to show clothing.

Why I'm Against Israel's "Too Skinny" Ban on Models

Israel's has recently banned "too-skinny" models requiring they must have a BMI of at least 18.5 in order to work. There are very strict rules about using models who fall below the magic number. However, this ruling is unfair. BMI is, after all, not always an indicator of health -- there have been many publications that have proven that. For example, people with very light bones and athletes are more likely to fall out of said number, and still be relatively healthy. In addition, one can meet these minimum requirements, yet still look extremely thin -- muscle, after all, weighs more than fat.
