So, yeah, Nicky Hilton’s spring collection hit the runway last night, and it’s all good and well that she’s creating a viable career and working hard at something that actually contributes something substantial to our culture as a whole, but forget all that: let’s talk about her eating disorder.
“There’s no truth to any starvation, eating disorders, rumors,” she told People magazine at her show last night. “I think the press has been printing a lot of pictures of me from unflattering angles … My friends see the pictures and they’re like ‘Oh my god are you okay?’ And then they see me, and they’re like ‘Oh … ‘ It’s really not that interesting or true.”
I know I’m a part of the Big Bad Media Machine, but I have to look at this and laugh. I’m sure Nicky’s busted her butt creating this line, but the story we all want to write is about her potential eating disorder. We’re all so disturbed.
Oh, and also, Nicky: the angles that make you look anorexic? Most celebs would consider those the flattering angles, my dear.
