More Evidence Of The Pressure To Be Stick Thin

Petra Nemcova:

NEW YORK -- Petra Nemcova knows what it's like to struggle to stay thin and continue modeling.

"I'm naturally more curvy, so I always had to lose weight," the 27-year-old Czech supermodel says in People magazine's Oct. 2 issue, on newsstands Friday. "I took laxatives. I went through all of it just to be able to model."

Nemcova would not have faced that problem at this year's Madrid Fashion Week, where models deemed too skinny were banned from the runways...

Nemcova appeared on the cover of the 2003 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She has appeared in magazines including Vogue and Marie Claire, and has modeled for Victoria's Secret.
