Topless protesters crash Milan Fashion week in demo against anorexic models
The protesters, from the feminist group Femen, wore jeans and handwritten slogans such as 'Fashion = Fascism' and 'Anorexia' scrawled across their bare chests.
The three attractive women - understood to be model themselves - chanted outside the high-end fashion show while holding aloft handmade placards with the same mottos and 'Models do not go to brothels'.
But Italian police forcibly blocked the protesters when they approached the entrance to the Versace Fall-winter 2012-2013 show during the

Donatella Versace's own daughter and heir to the fashion throne, Allegra, has been battling anorexia for years.

Femen is a Kiev-based provocative women's movement in Ukraine, founded in 2008 by Anna Hutsol.
