Vogue Model’s Shocking 13-Inch Waist Causes Stir [PICTURE]

There’s been a lot of controversy lately over models whose photos are airbrushed to make them appear ridiculously thin, but Vogue Italia can at least say the cover of its September issue didn’t involve any digital tricks.

That’s Stella Tennant, an actual real-live model. In a corset. That gives her a 13-inch waist.

The photo is an homage to the late Ethel Granger, a Guinness record-holder for having the world’s smallest waist. She also had a thing for facial piercings, which explains the big nose-ring Tennant’s wearing.

As for the scissors, she’s just looking for someone to stab so they’ll be in as much pain as she is. See the full Vogue Italia cover below:
