Visual Description:  Behind the runway.

HELIW  =  WHILE,  TAIRO  =  RATIO,  AAINUG  =  IGUANA,  CICINO  =  ICONIC   —   Giving us:  WHERTGNAINI

Clue/Question:  For the fashion model, always being on a diet and counting calories was – – –

Answer:  WEARING THIN

(Great pun!  No new clue words today, but we do have a few new jumbles, in “heliw”, “aainug” and “cicino”.  They are all new to me.  Nice answer letter layout.  The cartoon is sadly too true.  These poor girls basically starve themselves, to fit into this perverse media driven perception of “beauty”.  The funny thing – or, sad thing – is that it’s more directed to women than men.  Most men prefer the natural curves of real women, to the sallow stick figures that grace the fashion magazines.  It’s not healthy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
