Ali Michael makes a comeback in Paris

Last season, model Ali Michael was put on a plane from Paris back to the U.S. because she couldn't get casted for shows as a result of having "fat legs."

In New York and London for the S/S 09 season we saw Ali walk in many shows including Matthew Williamson, MaxAzria, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Luella and Burberry Prorsum.

Now she's in Paris and walking in many big name shows: Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld to name a few. This is huge for a young model who decried the fashion industry for its obsession with being anorexic thin.

I'm so glad to see that she is getting jobs and walking for the major shows, but I wonder at what cost? In her interview with Teen People she said her period stopped because she hardly ate. I wonder if she lost the weight she gained last season? Or are the casting agents being more forgiving this year and hiring models who wear sizes higher than zero?

Reports are saying that the average model this season is between a size 2 and 4 but it's hard to tell; they still look extremely thin.
I hope that Ali didn't sacrifice her period again to get work.
