She won the Elite Model Look contest 2011.
She's from Sweden and i think she must be 16 years old now. I will try to find some more pics, she reminds me a bit of Snejana.

After the ELITE contest she got a lot of ctiticism for being too skinny.

As the Montreal Gazette's Lens blog wrote: "Sweden’s Julia Schneider looks more like a "model" of anorexia than anything stylish that the fashion industry should be putting on a pedestal as a standard for emulation... Skeletons are meant jump out of closets not on to fashion runways. Why are only male models generally allowed to have an adult’s body shape?"

They called her skeletal and anorexic...

Well she is super skinny, look at that pic:



But some comments below those articles were just mean and very very hurtful.

I looked that blog up. Apparently the author Marcos Townsend deleted some of the stuff he wrote: "The popularity of this post is unexpected. After (very brief) reflection, I've decided to remove the harshest part of my original commentary. There's no reason that level of invective needs to be circulated."

You should have thought about that before you wrote that awful article and started bashing a 15 year old for her weight, Mr Townsend, your ugly quotes are still all over the internet.

Not every skinny person has an eating disorder.

Not every skinny person has an eating disorder.
And not every person with an eating disorder deserves to be trampled over in print for the way they look...

I wonder why people who apparently believe that they can diagnose anorexia via photos also think that castigating the sufferer, publicising their supposed disorder and inviting general despite is the most appropriate reaction - especially when the person on the other end of it is 15 years old :confused:

She looks skinny, but not in an anorexic way ( just my opinion). I think that she wears a dress wich is made for women with breasts and she clearly doesn't have any, so it makes her look even skinnier.
In pictures which posted @Skinny2012 she looks skinny and healthy :highfive:
