Obsessed` teen girls starving themselves to get ‘thigh gaps’ like celebs

London - Teenage girls are being driven to eating disorders like anorexia by their desire to mimic the “thigh gap” of stick-thin celebrities like Cara Delevingne, experts have warned.

Images of the 20-year-old Delevingne, who has been romantically linked to Prince Harry, are circulating on the net – with hundreds of girls pledging to starve themselves so that their legs don’t touch above the knee, the Daily Mail reported.

The “thigh gaps” that is sported by supermodel Kate Moss and fellow London “It” girl Alexa Chung are also highly coveted by the teenage girls.

But experts have warned that this is not a healthy look and is often the result of malnourishment or photo retouching.

Websites dedicated to promoting the “thigh gap” have sprung up and hundreds of girls have taken to Twitter to share tips on how to get “legs like Cara.”

One teen has vowed to “starve” to “be at least a skinny size eight and have a thigh gap at the end of the year.”

Another person boasted that “Being sick and not eating for three days has made my thigh gap bigger.”

Other Tweets have mentioned One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson’s girlfriend Eleanor Calder, 20. One fan wrote that she wanted to meet her so that she could “get tips on how to get a thigh gap and boyfriend”.
