“But it never occurred to me that I had an eating disorder, because people with eating disorders were thin, and I was still the same size I had always been.” At the same time that people were complaining that Jennifer Aniston had lost too much weight, hers became the celebrity face that sold more magazines than any other at the time. Onlookers cringed at the sight of Calista Flockhart’s meatless collarbone jutting out over her dress on the red carpet, but instead of a creating a backlash against thinness, it made the socially ideal weight shift downward. So today, Flockhart’s body is no longer such an oddity in Hollywood. Celebrities are routinely rewarded by the fashion world for their weight loss. At the 2001 VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards, the Red Carpet Award went to Renée Zellweger, who proved her gutsiness when she showed she was willing to pack an extra twenty pounds onto her waifish frame, said the magazine. Would the Bridget Jones actress have won if she hadn’t lost the weight and then some? Doubtful. Our perception of body shape is seriously warped when it comes to celebrities. Jennifer Lopez, who won the 1999 VH1/Vogue Fashion Award for Most Fashionable Female Artist, has curiously been grouped with “larger” women, although at five feet, six inches, she weighs in at an unchunky 120 pounds.

I brought three pairs into the dressing room: chocolate cords with piping down the sides, gray pinstriped trousers, and a pair of dark stretchy jeans. I grabbed my usual size 4—and 6s as backup. Not one fit past my knees. able picks and went back out to try my luck at the next two sizes. The 8s fit, but more snugly than I had hoped. Could all the sushi I’d eaten the night before have gone straight to my thighs? I passed on the 8s and left empty-handed rather than face the 10s in my closet each time I opened the door. The next week, I tried my luck at the Gap. My thighs swam in 6s. The 4s practically fell off my hips.
