i wonder if the gain was relevant to the gucci thing? Or she just used being labeled unhealthy as an excuse to blow up
I wasn't sure where to put this, and because her thread in the Models section has been inactive since 2016 I wasn't sure about bumping it.
However if anybody remembers the 2016 Gucci cruise campaign that was completely marred by HAES, then you definitely remember Avery Blanchard.
As far as I know, pretty soon after all the controversy she went silent in the fashion world (except for some subpar shots for H&M) and I just assumed that she'd let the nastiness get to her, but it appears she was/is suffering from hypothyroidism.
Here's her blog post dealing with the matter.
Even with this new spin on her disappearance, I can't help but feel as though the controversy and bullshit from the HAES movement contributed to her giving up. I'm not going to suggest she was incredibly unique, but I loved that Gucci campaign at the time and after the shitstorm about her weight, I wondered what she'd do in response to all the negative criticism.
