For several years anorexic models have been displayed in media, more likely in Vogue as a culture’s representation of beauty. However, yesterday Vogue announced that from now on, they are going to display healthy models that are above sixteen and without any eating disorders.
“Vogue believes that good health is beautiful,” Jonathan Newhouse, authority of Condé Nast International, said in a matter around a BBC. “Vogue editors around a universe wish a magazines to simulate their joining to a health of a models who seem on a pages and a wellbeing of their readers”
All Vogue editor around the world have agreed that they will no longer employ under 16 model who appear to have an eating disorder, and promised that they will make sure to check IDs before modeling sessions and encourage healthy backstage working conditions.
Fashion designers, temporarily, will be encouraged though not pleased to consider the costs of unrealistically small sample (dress) sizes, which encourages the use of really thin models.
Some may think it’s a little too late for Vogue to realize that it is no longer healthy to use anorexic models on their covers. However, I think, now, with Vogue’s ban on underage, anorexic models on their cover pages, real change is probable. That’s one small step for Vogue, one giant leap for the whole fashion industry.
