Catherine McNeil noshes on nuts...

Catherine McNeil has a boring, pretty face, and pretty boring diet too. New York Mag chronicled her week's worth of food in a rather humorously titled article "Model Catherine McNeil Finds Comfort in Chicken Burgers", even though she was nowhere near a chicken burger that week. An example of an entry:

"Wednesday, November 7-I worked from 11 am to 7 p.m., shooting for Another magazine. I had a handful of nuts and some fruit for breakfast on the job. For lunch I had some vegetables and salad. When I got home, I was so tired that I passed out, so I didn’t eat dinner. "

So, I learned that she frequently skips dinner, mainly subsists on nuts and salads and fruits, and that she eats. Provocative.

I guess that is not news in the modelling industry. Too many of them have recognized they don't eat as they must.

that is a tad over the top
i have nothing against people who want to watch what they eat but that is way too un healthy and people might copy that if it jhas been published
nuts are horrible to snack on anyway

Jeez, how awful:-S

she is typical, boring pretty i agree. folllowing a models diet must be boring, since they dont eat, so they need to make up meals, and since they havnt had a real one in a few months/decades, its hard for them to remember what those are like.


great blog! love your header.

haha- I read the article too. Hilarious! I mean, isn't the fashion industry trying to represent their models as healthy naturally thin girls as opposed to the skip-dinner-don't-really-eat-breakfast type a la McNeil?

Ha, funny stuff!

But Teresa, I thought you used to be a McNeil fan?

Damn, I missed your last post. The way I look at Daria had totally changed. I always used to think of her as one of the slightly blahhh US Vogue pretties and (ironically) one of the "older" models!

BUT, man her steamy shoots make me hot under the collar! (Well, the W one..) This one is less steamy, just gorgeously sexy, almost in a dreamy sleepy morning LA way.

ahhh.

Provacative, right. Not that nuts and fruit are unhealthy, but her portions probably amount to 400 calories, or less. Certainly that is not enough for even a model to fuction on.

funny how they try to portray models as naturally skinny girls yet this girl passes out and skips dinners.

Nuts? Really? I suppose you can't eat much anyway, if your appetite's been killed off by cigarettes first.

Jackie said...

I guess its time to realise that models aren't naturally thin... Well, most of the time anyways.

working from 11 to 7, i'd probably come home and pass out too. daria looks amazing in the numero photoshoot btw.

That's sad. Reading that made me hungry. I love your blog, especially the header. Wan to exchange links? My blog is pretty new and I just want to get the word around. Thanks :]

I think it was supposed to be ironic and sarcastic. New York Magazine usually has a reputation for sassy articles, so I don't see why this one should be different.

Whatever, McNeil will be yesterday's news within a matter of seasons (or one season). She should starve herself while she gets paid for it!
