Anorexic model who appeared in shock fashion campaign dies at 28
Isabelle Caro, a French actress and model whose anorexic image appeared in a shock Italian ad campaign, has died at the age of 28.

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.
At 5ft 4in, she is reported to have weighed just 4st 8lb (68lbs) at the time.
Caro, who had her own blog site, said she had suffered from anorexia since she was 13 as the result of a 'difficult childhood'.
