Last week, the Madrid Fashion Show banned overly thin models from walking their runway.

Now people are questioning the message ultra-thin models are sending to our young women. Linda layman has owned a Tulsa modeling agency for years. She says she's glad Madrid took a stand.

The News on 6 talked with Layman and two of her models that say there's a line that can be crossed from thin to just unhealthy. Linda Layman: "they just get too thin in their arms, their legs and under their eyes and their skin. You can tell when they're just not looking healthy. Its not attractive."

Madrid was the first fashion show to ban unhealthy models. So far, no others have followed suit.
