‘Vogue Magazine to only hire only healthy models from now on’… This has got to be a lie, coming from the people running the fashion industry, who feed models drugs, and restricts them from eating food!
Apparently, the change to from anorexic to au naturel is true, as British Vogue Magazine editor Alexandra Shulman, and 19 other international Vogue editors joined a pact, to stop the promotion of unrealistic body images.
At a lunch hosted by the ‘Wellbeing of Women’, which is a charity dedicated to improving the health of women, Shulman spoke out about Vogue’s new mission, saying “Vogue has started ‘The Health Initiative’ (encouraging a healthier approach to body image within the fashion industry). We are working with 19 of the magazine’s international editors and models agencies, encouraging them to use healthy models. We will continue to do so.”
But what about the mega airbrushing job that every model gets? Are the editors going to chill out on the fake face and body painting- hiding cellulite and stretch marks?
From now on, ‘casting agents and directors employed by Vogue, will be asked to check IDs of models to make sure they are not too young, and to not book models who appear to have eating disorders’. But will they question all of the actresses who they book for the cover and inside photo spread and story?
In June issues of Vogue American, French, Chinese and British editions, is when we are supposed to see a change! Vogue Japan edition won’t be changed until July.
Conde Nast, the Publisher for Vogue is also responsible for several other magazines, like Glamour and Allure, but no model change has been made for those mags.
If this is going to happen, almost every single working model will have to be fired asap, or they’ll have to start eating food, and not diet pills for dinner! Kate Moss- you can really drop the coke this time! No, really!
