Thin model scandal YSL Paris Fashion Week 2013

Yesterday a big online buzz started around the casting of some brands at Paris Fashion Week. This time however, the focus seemed to be shifted, from female to male models.

YSL was particularly criticised by some on the front row and in the blogosphere. Reason of the criticism was the model shown on the right side. Messages were posted that models this thin should not be casted, as they have a bad influence on young boys and girls that view the fashion shows.

Around 25% of all easting disorders is said to be diagnosed in Men. What is your opinion on the YSL casting, should they ban thin models from the runway?
