'Vogue' vows to use healthy modelsMay 4, 5:41 pm
Washington, May 4 (ANI): Editors of 19 international editions of the fashion magazine, Vogue, have made a pact to stop using models under the age of 16, or those who appear to have an eating disorder.The fashion magazine hopes to promote healthy body image through its new agreement.According to the New York Times, Conde Nast International chairman Jonathan Newhouse said in an announcement Thursday, "Vogue editors around the world want the magazines to reflect their commitment to the health of the models that appear on the pages and the well-being of their readers," CBS reported.The Vogue announcement, which came via a press release from Conde Nast International, was broken down into six points:"1. We will not knowingly work with models under the age of 16 or who appear to have an eating disorder. We will work with models who, in our view, are healthy and help to promote a healthy body image."2. We will ask agents not to knowingly send us underage girls and casting directors to check IDs when casting shoots, shows and campaigns."3. We will help to structure mentoring programs where more mature models are able to give advice and guidance to younger girls, and we will help to raise industry-wide awareness through education, as has been integral to the Council of Fashion Designers of America Health Initiative."4. We will encourage producers to create healthy backstage working conditions, including healthy food options and a respect for privacy. We will encourage casting agents not to keep models unreasonably late."5. We encourage designers to consider the consequences of unrealistically small sample sizes of their clothing, which limits the range of women who can be photographed in their clothes, and encourages the use of extremely thin models."6. We will be ambassadors for the message of healthy body image," he said.According to New York magazine, all the international editions will kick start the effort in their June issues with special editorials dedicated to the initiative.
