48. There is good reason for it

Uruguayan supermodel Luisel Ramos was gaining momentum in her modeling career and strutted her stuff down the catwalk last month to rapturous applause from the audience and fashion industry.

The 22 year old thought she was "making it big" last month after her agency said that she had what it took as long as she lost a few more pounds, which she was doing. In fact, for 3 months she had reportedly eaten nothing but salads and greens and drank only Diet Coke.

Indeed, she did reach the elusive size zero that the fashion world so openly aspires for. But minutes after stepping off the catwalk, she complained she didn't feel well and dropped dead from a heart failure.

These aren't her, but it is what the industry has been demanding. Apparently Luisel Ramos who was tall and lean was told she'd get more work if she was thinner. So she starved herself to death.
