They even plan to fine modeling agencies that will accept super thin models. Is this a big leap towards redefining the world of fashion? Tell us what you think by commenting below!

The best bistro in Paris is run by Pinay sisters!
Half-Filipino sisters Katia, 27, and Tatiana, 30 Levha (born in Paris and Manila, respectively) are making waves in the highly competitive food and restaurant industry in Paris. Their bistro, Le Servan whips up classical French cuisine, mixing it with different flavors from Asia, and is gaining popularity among locals and foreigners for being at the forefront of the city’s new culinary culture: unfussy and affordable food, made with the highest quality of ingredients. According to Bloomberg, both sisters did not have formal culinary training before opening Le Servan (impressive!) and that Tatiana’s passion and talent for cooking were first experienced by her college friends, serving them either hot Thai curry or the Filipino favorite, adobo. Here’s hoping that our cuisine makes it even bigger in the international scene! (PS: Want to know more Amazing Filipinas who will inspire you to go for your dreams? Head here.
