Shrinky Dinks

A few years ago, the Zone Diet and its accursed egg whites turned the formerly comfy Jennifer Aniston into a walking stick slathered in bronzer. The trend caught on as horrified Americans found themselves counting Renee Zellweger's vertebrae in Chicago and wondering why Nicole Kidman looked like an alabaster Blow Pop.

Now, the Skeletor trend has resurfaced in the Teen Vogue set. Lindsay Lohan has gone from millennial Sweater Girl to, well, read the T-shirt. The rapidly shrinking Nicole Richie is reportedly down to 97 pounds. Obviously, there's nothing wrong with naturally sylphlike women, but these actresses used to be noticably thicker. Clearly, extreme dieting is afoot--or at the very least, extreme chainsmoking and Red Bull abuse.
