Monday’s Cut: New Top Model in Britian to Challenge Fashion Boundaries

Posted Jul 03 2008 1:13pm

britains missing top modelDid you see this post on NY Mag’sThe Cut? Britian has a new Top Model reality series called, “Britain’s Missing Top Model.” The premise is that the entire cast of models competing have a disability, which producers hope will challenge and push the boundaries of the fashion industry.

But what floored me is Marie O’Riordan, editor of British Marie Claire’s statement:

“When I first heard about the programme, my immediate thought was would it all be women in wheelchairs,” she says. “And I knew that if it was going to be some sort of freak show, I didn’t want to be involved.”

Women in wheelchairs are freakshows? Are you kidding me? That has got to be the most ignorant statement that I’ve ever heard. Do you agree?

Read it all for yourself atThe Cut.
