Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show featuring a very thin Tori Spelling

Celebrities walked the runway at fashion week in New York today for the annual Heart Truth Red Dress Collection, sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Working it for a good cause were Patricia Arquette, Susan Lucci, Amanda Bynes, Jennie Garth, Hilary Duff, and Katie Couric. 90210′s Tori Spelling looked the most like an actual, underfed model. Her arms are like toothpicks. Tori has admitted that she feels pressure to be thin, and is quoted as saying “They scrutinize you so much. You try to be the person who says, ‘Oh, I don’t care,’ but I feel the pressure.”

Compare Tori’s diminutive look to the other celebrities who look comfortable and normal-sized. I have a friend who is tiny like that and she says she’s hurt when people point it out, so maybe I should listen to her and be more compassionate toward Spelling. I’m not a fan of Spelling, though, and generally find her to be a self-absorbed twit.

Patricia Arquette is gorgeous and I love how cute Katie Couric is, she’s almost shy out there. Amanda Bynes looks incredible in that short dress.

Newsday has more details on the event as well as the designers responsible. Many of the dresses modeled will be auctioned off starting February 27 on Clothes Off Our Backs. The proceeds will go to the Foundation For National Institutes of Health.

    I hope that this isn’t due to some kind of eating disorder. Though I won’t assume because I’ve had people make that judgment call about me and it pissed me the f*ck off. But if she’s lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time, that’s really bad for her physically. I mean it’s one thing if she’s naturally that skinny, but I want to say that past pictures show that she really isn’t.

    Anyway, Amanda Bynes’s dress is CUTE. I want. :)

  2. Diva says:

    OH MY GOD!

    She needs meat on her bones. Her head and face are just wayyyy too big to be on that tiny, bone frame! She looks like a sickly drag queen. And I’m normally very kind to Tori Spelling.

  3. kate says:

    i agree with diva that tori looks like an anorexic tranny. she looked way better pregnant.

  4. Rio says:

    I fully admit, though, I want that dress.

  5. Ron says:

    She really looks like a drag queen in that picture. Like she just stepped off of RuPaul’s Drag Race!

  6. Megan says:

    It’s not so much her weight, she’s just butt ugly.

  7. mE says:

    Amanda Bynes has got some awesome legs. They look fabulous in that dress.


  8. guest says:

    put some weight back on, put some weight back on. she looks way too skeletal.

  9. Exiled says:

    If I remember correctly, she was only a size 00 when she was on the original 90210

  10. Jackie says:

    The whole weight issue thing is really annoying. I have Chrohn’s Disease and I cannot keep weight on. I hate when people make the comments to me about being too thin and asking me if I ever eat. I wish I could gain weight but, I can’t and it frustrates me to have people point out how thin I am. That is the same as pointing to someone and telling them they are fat. It hurts.
    But, I really think Tori’s is kind of scary looking. She needs to put on a little bit of weight. I wish people wouldn’t make such a big deal about people’s weight. It should be about how that person feels and if they are comfortable with their weight. There is too much pressure to be thin.

  11. aleach says:

    how do these celebs do it? i was a size 0-2 before i got prego, and now im a bit bigger, but my weight has totally redistributed around my body! im not fat by any means, i have a regualr womanly body now, with hips, boobs & a butt, and love it, but these stars that bounce right back to their tiny pre-baby selves are crazy. i just dont get it!

  12. Kate says:

    Exiled –
    I think that the way sizes are designed now is different from the past. A size 0 then is probably bigger than today’s size 0. Did they even have size 0 when the old version was playing?

  13. I know that some people are naturally tiny, but this seems highly suspect . . .

  14. ChristinaX says:

    Nobody deserves to have an eating disorder. Eating disorders normally require a very poor self esteem, and I feel bad for anyone who has one.

    I think Tori Spelling may be insecure about the way she looks, so I can believe that she has an eating disorder. Didn’t she also have one in the past?

    I have to admit, though, I like the dress.

  15. prissa says:

    I don’t care how thin she gets, she’s fugly.

  16. barneslr says:

    I didn’t think it was possible for Tori Spelling to be uglier than she already was.

    I stand corrected.

  17. Codzilla says:

    Jackie: I’m sorry to hear about your affliction. Two of my closest friends have Chrone’s and they’ve had a terrible time. Hope you can get to a place where you’re feeling better.

  18. Annie says:

    Jackie: I’m sorry to hear that, but I am glad to see it’s not getting you down.

    And I hear ya, I once had a girl ask if I was bulimic because “there’s no way you’re that skinny and eat that much.”

    I almost clocked her, but my friend held me back. lol

  19. Persistent Cat says:

    I want Tori’s shoes.

    I don’t think Amanda Bynes has great legs at all (but I admit, I’m hypercritical about legs).

  20. nita says:

    Why is Amanda’s face always puffy? It just doesn’t seem to fit. But she is very pretty.

  21. Goddess711 says:

    She’s such an unattractive person inside and out. I want to know who Mary Jo Eustace’s voodoo professional is ‘cuz they’re doing a damn fine. I mean, come ‘on, Tori is so naturally beautiful and brilliant, and Dean McDermott is SUCH a prize, it has to be the ex wife’s fault that Tori is FUGLIER than ever and neither she nor McPuke are in the public eye unless they’re being a**holes. Gotta be the ex wife’s fault.
    GO TEAM EUSTACE!!!! lol!!

  22. Shelly Shellz says:

    DAMN this is 1 oogly chick!

  23. ER says:

    Those dresses are gorgeous and while Katie C. bugs the tar out of me, her shoes are fabulous.

    Susan Lucci could stand to put on a pound or two along with Tori.

  24. Scorpiogal says:

    I covet all those gorgeous dresses now- there’s something about red.

    As for Tori Spelling- yikes! Notice how she blames her thinness on “the pressure,” when in reality no one wants such a grotesque, emaciated toothpick. I think the pressure she speaks of is internal. She needs help.

  25. ChristinaX says:

    It’s not very often I say this, but some of these comments really disgust me.

    I think it’s a little bit tacky to point out how ugly someone is when they may be suffering with an eating disorder.

    Just a thought.

  26. Persistent Cat says:

    I think they mean her face. Her face has always been ugly.

    I don’t know what pressure is being put on her, what does she do?

  27. NotBlonde says:

    Tori Spelling is ugly in the face, not the body. People with anorexia are freaked out about their bodies, not their faces.

    Anyway, Tori Spelling has never been particularly large. She gained a bunch of weight when she was preggo, but she’s always been thin.

    She needs to quit with that crap about “feeling the pressure” to be thin. No one wants to hire her because she can’t act and looks like a horse, not because she’s “fat”.

  28. ana says:

    I know someone who is naturally tiny (5’3 and about 95 pounds) and she gets hurt as well when someone makes fun of her or says things.
    She can’t help it, her mom was the same way when she was younger.
    But Tori is not naturally that thin. She needs to get healthy and stay healthy for her two children and husband.

  29. Orangejulius says:

    I just want her dress and those shoes.

  30. Cinderella says:

    It looks like Tori is trying to reclaim her 90210 figure from years back. If she’s starving herself to do it, she is an idiot. You can’t take care of your kids when you’re malnourished.

    No pity here.

  31. vdantev says:

    Forget butt ugly, this is circus ugly where you pay 25 cents to have a peek through the tent curtains.

  32. Anny says:

    You know CB could have shown some of the beautiful African American Celebrities that were at this event as well (Nia Long,Vivica Fox( two beautiful Black Cougars) Saana Lathan, etc.)…..Just Sayin!!! :(

  33. gretchen says:

    Just goes to show that even a gazillion dollars cannot totally fix a face. I always thought Tory was pretty, but never a true beauty. Additionally, leaving her ex-husband and plucking up someone else’s mate so quickly didn’t help her to win any popularity contests.

  34. Celebitchy says:

    @Anny, These are all of the celebrity photos that were available on Splash photos at the time this post was published. I didn’t see photos of Nia Long, Vivica A Fox or Sanaa Lathan or I would have included their photos on the catwalk. Other sites have different photo agencies and/or they published their stories later when those other celebrity pictures were available.

  35. mojoman says:

    No matter how much weight she lose, she cant turn back time on her ugly nose job/boob job/scrambled face. Her plastic surgeon must either unqualified or blind.

  36. Summer says:

    Tori was always really thin without dieting. I think she looks pretty good because that dress hides her oversized cow boobs. She looks more in proportion and younger. Less cartoonish.

  37. Zoe says:

    Now she looks even more like one of Paris Hilton’s abandoned Chihuahuas.

  38. Hmmph says:

    … and very butt uGly!!!!!!!

  39. Ana says:

    I just saw a lifetime movie with her in it and she was very tiny back then. But she looked healthy.
    Now she has had two babies and is older but she is the same size and she doesn’t look healthy. Poor girl.

  40. orion70 says:

    sorry….but Amanda Bynes does NOT look incredible (or interested/awake for that matter), in that dress.

  41. Ned says:

    Amanda Bynes looks incredible in that short dress

    It’s not a dress, it’s a sleeveless shirt.

    This is the second time I see Amanda Bynes trying so hard to look like a Vegas prostitute.

    I am sorry. That would be an insult. Vegas prostitutes are usually prettier and would not be dressed like that had they had the choice.

  42. Ned says:

    I am not sure I understand why people are excusing anorexia by claiming that “but she’s always been thin”.

    Let’s say someone was overweight and then lost the extra weight- is that negative in any way?

    And let’s say someone had an eating disorder since she became famous, so people think she was always “very thin”- does it make it better, if she did it for a long time?

    I don’t know what is Tory’s problem, but something is wrong with her.
    Just because she might have had that problem for a long time, doesn’t make it better.

  43. Aspen says:

    My mother-in-law has the same body style as the one in Tori’s head photo. It doesn’t follow that because she is very thin that she is anorexic.

    Were she so, and had she been so all these years since 90210, I doubt she would’ve gained the healthy amount of weight she gained in her pregnancies. Someone with anorexia spanning two decades doesn’t “give it up” for pregnancies.

    I doubt seriously that she has an eating disorder. She has always been gangly with a bigger head than suited her frame. I see no reason to suspect mental illness for her current state of thin-ness.

    That said, I feel nothing but disdain for this woman. What Angelina Jolie did in her early relationship with a still-married Brad Pitt PALES in comparison to what this little hussy has done.

    And, yet, our largest concern about this poor excuse for a human being is whether or not she recycles her meals.

  44. barneslr says:

    “Someone with anorexia spanning two decades doesn’t “give it up” for pregnancies.”

    Actually, you are wrong about that. They DO “give it up” when it comes to pregnancy. I should know…I’m the daughter of an anorexic. She gave birth to 2 healthy children, and maintained healthy weight during her pregnancies, but post pregnancy went right back to her anorexic eating habits.

    Even now, at nearly 70, she still battles with it.

  45. barneslr says:

    Wow! Susan Lucci looks BEAUTIFUL! The woman just never ages. But Katie Couric…did she put on 30 or 40 pounds, or is it just an unflattering dress? She looks bloated and pudgy.

  46. Jag says:

    Tori appears to have anorexia because other photos showing her back shows the laguno or whatever it is – the excess hair that grows as the body tries to keep itself warm… I hope she gets the help she needs.
