Conspicuous Cuisine

Blatantly showcasing food consumption in fashion photography
Implications - Over the years, the fashion industry has been under fire time and time again for using overly skinny models on runways and in advertising and editorials, with consumers accusing models and fashion industry players of promoting eating disorders and poor body image among women. Perhaps in response, more and more fashion photography is blatantly showcasing models stuffing their faces with food. Although the juxtaposition of a very thin subject with an alarming amount of food may simply be a sardonic attempt at humor, this glaring show of gluttony may also be a not-so-subtle effort to dispel the belief that models don't eat.
