The Daily Mail identified the model whose "socially irresponsible" swimsuit photos were recently banned by the U.K. Advertising Standards Authority as 21-year-old Scottish model Amanda Hendrick. Hendrick, who has been working as a model since she was 14, had a pretty great spring-summer runway season: she walked for Balenciaga, Jean Paul Gaultier, Costume National, Temperley London, and Paul Smith, among others. She once said in an interview, "I still do sometimes think that I would be better off going to college and just getting a wee job somewhere…In Milan I would spend about 10 hours a day just running from casting to casting without getting a break." And models are under plenty of pressure to stay thin. "I remember going to one casting where a girl fainted through lack of food. Another girl I lived with out there for a while obsessed about food all the time." [Daily Mail]
