French model and actress Isabelle Caro, who has battled anorexia since the age of 13 and not long ago starred in a series of anti-anorexia billboards and advertisements, has died. ABC News reports: "Caro featured in an ad campaign by Italian photographer Oliviero Toscani in 2007 for an Italian fashion house. Under the headline "No Anorexia," images across newspapers and billboards showed Caro naked, vertebrae and facial bones protruding. In later interviews, she said she weighed about 27 kilograms, or 59 pounds, when the photos were taken." [ABC News]
