Althouse: “What has happened to the beautiful people? Did some disease just strike Hollywood? Seriously, they look ill or corrupt or desolate.
Are they all somehow dying? Is this the return of "heroin chic"?
(Heroin Chic - was a look popularized in mid-1990s fashion and characterized by pale skin, dark circles underneath the eyes and angular bone structure. The look, characterized by emaciated features and androgyny, was a reaction against the "healthy" and vibrant look and reflected the appearance of “high class” heroin addicts. The trend eventually faded, in part due to the drug-related death due to a heroin overdose of prominent fashion photographer driving the trend.)
Did the picture-of-health go out of style? What's happening?
