Model Gets Fired for Eating Croissant

Belgian model Florian van Bael who was fired during an A&F photoshoot in October 2010.
Eat in the presence of Bruce Weber during an Abercrombie & Fitch photoshoot and expect to get scorned. That is what happened to Belgian model Florian Van Bael after he ate a croissant during an A&F photoshoot taking place at Montauk, New York, in the Panoramic Hotel - he got fired!!! It "was considered to be an inappropriate moment" when the guy took an innocent bite at the pastry that got him kicked out of one of Weber's coveted A&F photoshoots. The models, 30 in total, were under strict supervision as to what they ate, when the worked out, ect. True enough, don't eat while Weber's about to capture your abs, so not professional. This is irrelevant, but I think the photoshoot was for Spring 2011.

P.S. Florian van Bael is a rising model. He was featured in models.com as top model of the week during summer 2010, and has been included in multiple upscale fashion campaigns in the past.
