Topless feminists clashed with police as they protested against the use of anorexic models outside the Versace fashion show in Milan yesterday.
The protesters, from the feminist group Femen, wore jeans and handwritten slogans such as 'Fashion = Fascism' and 'Anorexia' scrawled across their bare chests.
The three attractive women - understood to be model themselves - chanted outside the high-end fashion show while holding aloft handmade placards with the same mottos and 'Models do not go to brothels'.
