At last! Designers have always desired models who look like adolescent boys so they can spend time partying instead of learning how to construct patterns, darts, seams and internal corsetry.
Now, Romanian-born model Ioana Spangenberg and her 20in waist means they’ll have their ultimate clothes horse.
While Ioana Spangenberg has been called a ‘human hourglass’, this isn’t strictly true. In the 1900s, my granny had an 18in waist, but this was mostly achieved by corsets. She still had hips, buttocks and breasts. Ioana is a human coathanger. Not even a wooden one, just one made of wire.
Ioana Spangenberg, a 30-year-old model from Romania, has a tiny 20-inch waist – only five inches bigger than a CD despite her having three square meals a day and applying no diet. Ioana Spangenberg weights a miniscule 38kg and claims that her diet is consistent with a woman twice her size. The Romanian-born model insists, “No one seems to believe it, but every day I eat three big meals and I snack on chocolate and crisps all the time” and “I just have a small stomach. It’s a bit like having a natural gastric band – if I eat too much, I feel sick”.
