Australian model agency Chic Management took 23-year-old Stephanie Carta out of a show by designer Michelle Jank on Monday when it became obvious she had lost weight since moving to Paris last November.
But she was allowed back onto the catwalk a day later, after her agency was reassured that she was fit and well -- although her appearances were limited to about eight shows instead of about 15.
"She's been working for seven days a week, 11 hours a day, to pursue her dream of becoming an international model but she also contracted glandular fever so she had lost weight," said the agency's spokeswoman Kathy Ward.
"She is on a positive track now and is going to relax, take time out, not work as hard and have lunches and dinners."Bikin fashion, Beauty girl, Girl Beauty, Bikini girl, gai xinh, Fashion Designers
