Fashion icons battling eating disorders? Stop the presses!
Allegra Versace (below, left) is the latest to be completely consumed by anorexia, says her mother, Donatella Versace (below, right). Collectively, we just have to say, after looking at this pic: yuck! Lindsay Lohan calls herself a skinny bitch, but she's got nothing on these corpses.
On Wednesday, Donatella Versace described her 20-year-old daughter's situation, saying Allegra "is very ill... anorexia is consuming her and we are very worried. However, the doctors are doing all they can to snatch her away from this cruel disease and we have faith in them."
Hey, doctors did a pretty good job snatching Britney Spears from insanity, bulimia, depression and alcoholism earlier this year, so there's hope yet!
Of course, the Nicole Richie death watch is picking up steam.
Allegra Versace, who inherited half of her uncle, Gianni Versace's $600 million fashion empire at the age of 18, had been studying fashion in New York and was planning to follow in her father's footsteps.
That is, until she appeared to look like
Kate Bosworth rail thin in recent photographs. She is currently being treated in a specialist clinic.
Pleading for respect from the press, Donatella Versace claims her daughter has suffered from the eating disorder for years.
"For some time the situation has become worse and that is why we decided to place her in a designated specialized clinic where she is receiving the best possible treatment," says Donatella Versace, who never fake tans and hasn't had any plastic surgery at all.
"Please think of us and respect our pain. Many mothers will know well what I am going through and what my daughter is risking."
We suggest they call Keith Richards for a consult ASAP.
