Word of the day: rexy

I came across a nice portmanteau today: rexy. It's a blend of 'anorexic' and 'sexy', used to describe the kind of heroin chic look championed by model Kate Moss (pictured).

Interestingly, the word seems to be a fairly recent coining by Kate Moss herself - one for the South London Massive then. Or rather, not massive, but alarmingly underweight...

Appears to be primarily an adjective but also a noun (as in, 'what a bunch of rexies').
