She is obviously anorexic, and no one seems to be helping her. I find it sick when people are that oblivious to an unhealthy person and say she looks "gorgeous". No, she once was gorgeous. You know, when she wasn't dying? Now she just needs help.

I think her style is wonderful regardless of her weight. The jacket is a gem, and the mix of colors is fantastic.
And his outfit makes me smile-- he has taken what my dad usually wears and makes it look supa fly (I cannot believe I wrote that) with the chain and cardigan.

i wish someone would help julia. she obviously suffering from an eating disorder...and using her raw veganism as her cover up. it is so sad to watch someone who is so intelligent, witty, and talented loose control - her days are numbered on earth.

she is so cute. i really hope she doesn't have an eating disorder. i don't think it's obvious because i would say i'm that skinny and i love to eat.

She's so skinny! Too skinny for me.

Anouk said...

poor girl

People with negative comments about Julia's weight, might want to consider: Julia is only 19...so she's still technically only a teenager. Your metabolism is high as a teen.

Oh, I thought she was 14 b.c I looked about that skinny when i was 13, and 14 and ppl thought i was anorexic (I wasn't). I am 20, and if anything I got fatter in my teens, not skinnier. That's about the time when you put on weight. But, everyone's body is different I guess.

Anonymous said...

She's also a vegan. Not an excuse, I know, but still a valid reason for her size.

sunni said...

julia is quite the breathe of fresh air during fashion week with her quirky, clashing-but-not outfits. though she does look severely underweight, it may not be an eating disorder. i know raw/veganism is beginning to look like a bad cover up, but considering her age, how much she travels, her busy schedule, it must be difficult to stick to such a diet and still be consuming enough energy to maintain a healthy weight. i do think she needs some help and advice, but not necessarily the type administered by an eating disorder clinic...she is a smart girl who seems to be very health-conscious, so i'm sure she is concerned herself.

Anonymous said...

Yes, she does seem underweight, but as the previous commenter said, I'm sure she can take after herself.

Nevertheless, she is absolutely gorgeous, and has an amazing style and attitude. And she's only 19! She has great things in store for her.

Markometeenk said...

Are you guys kidding me?
Why is everybody bitching about her being too skinny. While the bloke is too fat.

She looks very elegant. And it's so easy to hysterically cry out she has an eating disorder. Quite ignorant.

Megan said...

I sat behind Julia at fashion week and she is honestly the skinniest person I have ever seen, and there are a lot skinny people at fashion week. She is so sickly looking that it was actually hard for me to look at her. And even though she is 19, it was certainly not natural. This is not meant to be mean, but in hopes that she seeks help.

I know she's anorexic, she does absolutely EVERYTHING to hide it. She takes pictures of food to pretend she's eating it, is raw vegan so no one bothers her about what she eats, and she's been vegan for 5 years so she stopped growing as a teen at a young age before most girls even develop boobs and hips hence her 12 year old body frame. She's half the size of the models who are called anorexic! She has no fat on her what so ever, thats not normal. Why hasn't anyone said anything about her weight to her! She's putting a bad image out there. I know she's anorexic her dinners consist of plates of lettuce, that she posts on twitpic. I know many models that are bigger than her and aren't healthy which proves that this is beyond. Can someone tell her to gain weight!!

show me someone just as thin as her who's healthy?
Has anyone ever noticed how she crosses her legs in all photo's, only because her legs uncrossed are sticks that have a huge space inbetween. Also, her hair isn't that color naturally, it's light brown, she probably died it red so that she can be as pale as possible without people accusing her of an eating disorder since you become pale when you lose lots of weight. No one is naturally boney! No one has there spine poking you in the eyes naturally! STOP SAYING IT'S "NATURAL"! Being raw vegan makes you lose weight and that's not natural. She doesn't eat any beans, nuts or avocados which are basically the only source of fat as a raw vegan. She also covers up her anorexia by being super nice to everyone. She has also said she doesn't "google" her name, wonder why? Because everything that comes up has to do with her being sick!

This is the worst industry for a person with food issues to be involved in. Fashion people will lead you to the grave saying how beautiful and fabulous you look while you waist away to nothing. Really needs to stop. Seriously!

Anonymous said...

I love her style and I would love to see how stunning and beautiful she would look with some healthy meat on her body. She would look magical! Now she is just to bony.
I think she doesn't think about how much earlier she will age, as she does not have a layer of fat in her face which will make the wrinkles come faster.
Isn't there anyone out there that can help her? Her family? Mickey? Who is in the position of helping her? Please do something the one who can.
She is such a talented girl, but perhaps she is putting to much pressure on her self being a perfect girl.
It's hard transitioning from school life to professional work life, and clearly it's taking it's toll.
All the best Julia!

OMG.... beautiful face. BUT SO ANOREXIC.

Im 175 cm. tall, and I weigh 120 lbs.... Im naturally thin, but you cannot see a single bone poking out..... I dont know how tall she is, but she is definitely less than 100 lbs. Prediction: she will die if she doesnt eat real food and get help now....

Seriously. theres a real difference between naturally lean and thin, and this.....

julia frakes needs help.

These comments about weight are super inapproperiate. She may have an gastro-intesttinal problem that makes her lose weight (seriously, look it up). Diagnosing someone with an eating disorder without knowing there mental state is impossible.

I think the moderater of this website ought to delete the posts about anorexia!

You are so right, I went to middle and high school with Julia. She is not anorexic- please consider the consequences of your words before you type them. Many people are struggling through hardships that you do not know about- so to categorize them as something that they are not is very sad. I'm sure she appreciates your concern because she is sincerely one of the nicest people I know, but anorexia is not the issue.

Interesting...I was searching for photos of Audrey Tautou when I came upon a skinny photo of her on an anorexic teen's blog. Upon looking around on the blog I noticed some photos of a girl named Julia Frakes. Funny...to first learn who Julia is from an anorexic teenager's blog. Just so happens the teenager says Julia is her hero. Anorexic girls are saying they want to be thin like Julia.

B'JAYSUS!

calm the f down. the girl has an ED--you know how miserable that is?

It drives me NUTS when people like you go on as if having an eating disorder is some crime against humanity. Having an eating disorder is a horrible way to spend your days--and I'm saying this from experience.

Maybe YOU should stop and reflect for a moment on why you're so riled up about her skinniness.

Clearly you have some issues with your own body.

Because there's no reason anyone should get so angry and so worked up about a stranger's eating disorder.

Julia's ED is not your business. Her mental health is her own private matter.

An eating disorder is no less personal and deserving of privacy than is a depressive disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and so on.

Those who are close to Julia and have a personal relationship with her are the ones who need to worry about her ED and encourage her towards a path of recovery--not you.

One last point:
You can indeed be "naturally" bony--whatever "naturally" even means. I am not making any claims about Ms. Frake's body (because frankly I think she does have an eating disorder), but you should know that I have--and have always had--a bony-looking chest and a spine that pokes out. And I'm quite self-conscious about them.

I actually call my stick-outy vertebrae "my stegosaurus spikes." ;)

oh leave the girl alone. She has admitted that she has Chron's desease. And as I know one of it's symptoms is dramatic weight loss. If you have Chron's desease it's recommended to stick to a healthy diet and raw veganism is the best she can do for herself (I mean healthvise). So please stop attacking her, she didn't choose to be that skinny!!!

twelve.dollar.soup said...

Actually, Crohns disease sufferers are advised NOT to eat lots of raw vegetables because they wreak havoc on the digestive system.

Anonymous said...

Yes. She needs help. I wish her the best, but she clearly is TOO THIN. And as someone said, Crohn's disease is not an excuse for that weight. My neighbor's boy has it and he is a perfectly normal weight. He eats poultry and rice and many foods that clearly this girl does not. She is starving herself by the looks of it. So whether it is anorexia or Crohn's, she still NEEDS HELP.

Anonymous said...

Julia is so beautiful, but she does need help. As an anorexic, I know an eating disorder when I see one. I've gone through a lot of treatment and to say it's hard is an understatement. People should not be so hard on her, it isn't her fault. Instead of being critical, someone should just lend her a hand.

Anonymous said...

I've known Julia since elementary school. She's always been super-thin (even as an elementary student.) She's got health issues that necessitate her raw food vegan diet. She's not one of those "Don't Feed the Model" type of girls. She eats food, albeit raw and vegan food,but food.

She's not that skinny by choice.

Unknown said...

she has crohns disease, so maybe that contributes to her weight. it could be why shes a vegan as well. maybe shes just that skinny from being vegan! lay off

Its not fair, I've suffered with anorexia for seven years and I've always been made gain weight then I lose it and made gain etc etc....she just seems to be getting away with it just because she is famous

Anonymous said...

I just saw that comment by some1 saying that they think she must be less than 100lbs,
hell she weighs about 65lbs, 70 max

Grigorios B. said...

She should be treated in a medical facility for eating disorders, preferably.

That poor kid is anorexic, don't you all see it?
