French model Isabelle Caro, who’s battle with anorexia was famously pictured in a shocking advertising campaign in 2007, has died at 28.
Her acting coach, Daniele Dubreuil-Prevot, has revealed that Isabelle died on November 17. She had reportedly just returned home to France after doing a job in Tokyo.
Daniele was unsure of the model’s actual cause of death, but added that she had struggled with anorexia since the age of 13. She did say that Isabelle “had been sick for a long time.”
Isabelle was most well known for a campaign she did for Italian photographer Oliviero Toscani in 2007. She posed naked for the ad, displaying her skeletal frame and facial bones protruding from her tiny body. The ad was featured in newspapers and billboards with the headline “No Anorexia.”
In 2010, she was featured on an episode of Jessica Simpson‘s The Price of Beauty where she discussed her body image issues. (You can watch her part of the episode HERE)
Such a sad story. Condolences to her family.
