This makes me sick whenever I see it, and it never seems to end. It ends up paradoxically rewarding the models who sell out, because press is what they're after. "No such thing as bad publicity," and all that rubbish.

The solution is simply to condemn the selling out, forcefully and unambiguously, and from then on to ignore the sellout's work completely (after all, they're now just regular skinny models), to deny them the publicity that they're after. And instead, to devote attention to models who don't shrink, who keep their curves, or, better yet, augment them, and who are legitimately full-figured.

Those videos are beautiful. I haven't seen them since back when they first debuted, but I still remember them, just as I remember the lovely screencaps showing Kailee looking so gorgeous in those dresses:
