Posted on December 30, 2010


Isabelle Caro, a French actress and model who has struggled with anorexia since the age of 13, has died at the age of 28. In 2007, she was featured in an anti-anorexia ad campaign by Italian photographer Oliviero Toscani and was working to get legislation passed to prohibit models from working if they become unhealthily thin.

Caro once appeared on Jessica Simpson’s “The Price of Beauty.” Read the article from the Huffington Post and view the video clip from the Oprah show and a photo from the 2007 shock campaign here.
