Size Zero

My Life as a Disappearing Model

by Victoire Dauxerre

eBook
Scouted in the street when she was 17, Victoire Dauxerre's story started like a teenager's fantasy: within months she was strutting down the catwalks of New York's major fashion shows. But when fashion executives and photographers forced her to become ever thinner, Victoire's dream became a nightmare. In Size Zero Victoire unflinchingly exposes the ugly face of fashion and details her personal battle with anorexia nervosa and bulimia with painful honesty. A shocking indictment of the pressures our society puts on young women, her story will give strength to anyone trying to overcome or understand the increasingly prevalent problem of eating disorders. 'Unique and persuasive ... bravely, Dauxerre names names – even the big ones' Sunday Times 'It is rare for someone to blow the whistle so spectacularly as Dauxerre. Hopefully her book will be a force for good' Evening Standard
