PARIS: It was the stuff of dreams: walking down a Paris street one day to walking the runway as a top 20 model in the world's fashion capital. That's exactly what happened to Victoire Macon Dauxerre at 18 as she prepared to graduate from high school in 2011 .In just a few months Dauxerre was battling anorexia, eating three apples a day and sipping diet colas in an effort to maintain her elite model status.For Dauxerre, besides apples and Diet Cokes, she allowed herself one small piece of fish or chicken once a week.A healthy 56 kilos at 1.78 meters when she was spotted, Dauxerre went down four dress sizes to 47 kilos in just a couple of months.Dauxerre was so starved and exhausted at one point she fainted in the streets of New York during one fashion week.Dauxerre's memoir comes a month after French MPs voted through a law banning ultrathin models.Dauxerre applauds the ban, even though she feels it is "10 years too late".
