In the UK, the British Fashion Council (BFC) has refused to ban size-zero models from the runways at next month's London Fashion Week. On the other hand, edgy fashion magazine Pop has chosen singer Beth Ditto of The Gossip to model in a couture shoot, reports The Independent. "Beth Ditto has become an accidental size hero for the size-zero age. She has become a generational icon, confounding the tedious stereotypes of what it is to be a wonderful 21st-century woman," says editor Katie Grand. Yay! Although Ditto's not on the cover — it's Lindsay Lohan. Boo.
