VOGUE STEPS UP & LEADS THE WAY TO CHANGE6:23 PM
US Vogue Cover, May 2012
Vogue editors around the world have agreed to encourage a change on outlooks within this prestigious industry by placing a ban on the use of underage and scarily skinny models. Anna Wintour, editor of US Vogue, along with 18 other editors of the magazine's international editions, have pledged to use only healthy models on the editorial pages. They have also banned the use of adolescent models in order to illustrate a more realistic picture of adult women's bodies.
Hopefully this will change the way fashion insiders think about this issue. I hope now that Vogue, one of the most prominent and influential fashion magasines in the world, is willing to change for the better, designers will be encouraged to make realistically sized sample dresses instead of puny, unhealthily sized ones. I hope that this issue is finally resolved.
