Style critic Sarah Mower has always been one of our idols, so when she writes on anything - even the hoarse debate on too-skinny models - we're bound to listen. Her thoughts, as outlined today in The London Telegraph, start with '90s supermodels, who were considerably rounder than the Lilies and Sashas of now. Sarah asserts that when these women left the industry, so did the craziness and fun of fashion, "and that makes a less healthy atmosphere." Sarah also makes the most realistic statement yet about today's top girls: "The only thing that would put more flesh on models' bones is a worldwide shift in aesthetics." How do we get there? Mower's accompanying piece - on her teen daughter's obsession with shorts - might be key. As a new generation of style consumers comes up, their preferences will dictate the market, and influence the new iconography. If today's teens reject industry standards, the fashion world will have to follow them, or else lose millions. After all, the only reason those girls are so skinny is so they can sell you things...
