    Wandering Eye: Coercion in the modeling world, 'smart' toothbrushes, and more
    New Republic published a piece this week by Jennifer Sky, who starred in the campy science-fiction series "Cleopatra 2525," on some of the coercion she experienced as a teenage model. "When I was 16 years old, I was brought to Mexico, given drugs, and was coerced into being photographed topless. I had been hired to model for a successful tanning product company called California Tan. I was a teenager alone in a foreign country," she writes. This experience wasn't an isolated one: Sky wrote an article for New York magazine back in 2013 that detailed the traumatic working conditions she experienced during her two years as a teenage model that led to her developing complex post-traumatic stress disorder, which she still struggles with now, 20 years later. Her New Republic piece focuses specifically on nude photos of minors that are all too common in the fashion industry: "Kate Moss, too, was only seventeen when she was infamously photographed nude for the 1992 Calvin Klein Obsession campaign. In a recent video interview with Nick Knight, Moss spoke about the abusive way her then-boyfriend Mario Sorrenti, a darling of the fashion world, forced her to strip and be photographed nude even after she had expressly said no." She writes that "young fashion models are particularly vulnerable to predatory behaviors and child abuse because the fashion industry falls under the umbrella of 'art,'" and argues that it's time to extend the worker protections that protect other child performers to fashion models.
