Agence France-Presse, via GMA News Online, reports that the editors of all 19 editions of Vogue magazine around the world have pledged to use only healthy models no younger than 16 years old on their editorial pages in an attempt to shift fashion's approach to body image. Anna Wintour, editor of Vogue's flagship US edition, and Emmanuelle Alt of Paris Vogue are among the editors who agreed to the pact.
The report quoted the editors as saying that in a six-point pact to appear in their respective June issues, they would pledge not to knowingly work with models under the age of 16 or with those "who appear to have an eating disorder." "We will work with models who, in our view, are healthy and help us to promote a healthy body image," they said.
