Molly Simms Calls Models Too Thin

Gotta love celebrities who don't censor! Alice+Olivia designer Stacey Bendet flew Molly Sims to New York City walk in her show today. Simms told New York magazine that the models at Alice+Olivia are underfed, in response to the magazine's statement that high-end shows have well-fed girls and low-end shows do not. Does this mean in order to get your start in the big leagues you have to extremely skinny, and then once you make it you are allowed to gain a few pounds because you have a little bit of star power/authority/demand? I think it might...

Here is the article from The New York Post:

September 11, 2007 -- ALICE+OLIVIA designer Stacey Bendet, who is showing her collection today at her West 40th Street store, is a mite miffed at model Molly Simms. Responding to - which noted, "The lower-end shows have the thinnest girls . . . The better-paid ones look more well fed" - Simms replied: "Yeah . . . I see the same thing, too. Like the alice+olivia show last year, two girls should not have been walking." Bendet, who flew Simms in for her February show and gave her free clothes, fumed to us, "Before Molly calls us 'lower end,' maybe she should stop begging for free pants and a plane ticket." Molly will now have to mooch elsewhere. -NY Post
