Caro said on her blog and in interviews she had suffered from anorexia since she was 13. She wrote a book published in France in 2008 entitled “The little girl who did not Get Fat.”

The campaign came as the Italian fashion industry has a spotlight on anorexia exceptionally bright, according to a model 21-year-old died in Brazil from the eating disorder. Her agent, Sylvie Fabregon, told AP he was destined to “show what it means to be anorexic.”

Some groups working with anorexics warned, however, he did a disservice to people with the disease.

Caro images appeared on so-called pro-ana or pro-anorexia websites. On Wednesday, it posted a notice about her death and a picture of her, big blue-green eyes peering over a child-sized upper arm, with the caption, “die young, stay pretty.”

Bigler said he wrote the song after being so excited and anxious to see Caro on television and hears the words to focus on hope and healing.

Caro “left me with many images, and much hope,” he said by telephone, describing the moods and different ideas as they worked on the project together.

Caro’s Facebook page says she was born September 12, 1982. It took violin lessons and acting classes at Nantes and Versailles, according to Marie-France Dubreuil-Prevot.

The Italian campaign gained widespread attention in Caro media in countries in Europe and the United States. She then served as a board member of Top Model France, and worked regularly as an actress and television.
