A Real-Life Barbie Doll?

This article on a Romanian-born model with a 20-inch waist has some people outraged. 

There are some interesting dynamics surrounding this article. On the one hand, people are repulsed at this woman's size and her negative influence on young girls. The article points out that she eats three meals a day and still looks like this, evoking the Kate Moss illusion that "it's easy for women to be that thin."

On the other hand, I question if this is her natural figure, and it may be a source of anxiety for her that she looks like this. Thoughts?
