VOGUE refuses to hire ‘eating disorder’ models — Do you believe it?
Newspaper Ads. Magazines. Google Images. Movies. TV Programs.
Supermodels are everywhere and their physical characteristics are, more or less, always the same: tall, skinny, long hair, lots of makeup, etc, etc.
Regardless, VOGUE Magazine is reporting looking to change that stereotype by outlawing two common modeling traits — no one under the age of 16 and no one with an eating disorder. The publication says that they believe “good health is beautiful”, and beginning with policing themselves the magazine will “mark an evolution in the industry” were young, super thin models are the norm.
Do you think VOGUE will stand by their promise? Do models seen in magazines promote a bad example for your ‘average’ teen girl?

They aren’t asking the models to admit to an eating disorder. They’re checking their BMI, and if it’s below a healthy weight then they are not permitted to model.

The vast majority of models are extremely healthy. You don’t have nice hair and perfect skin by starving yourself. And you don’t have nice teeth by throwing it all up. Most models are just naturally slim and athletic. Stop hating.

you don’t have to have an eating disorder to look skinny but, if she does, what model is going to admit it anyway?

lol what model is going to admit they have an eating disorder? seriously though what a joke, this won’t even make a difference. it’s all for show so that they can gain support. the models they will pick out will look the same weight as before. completely pretentious on vogue’s part.
that and i think people preach too much about accepting your body when they should be encouraging good diet and, especially, informing them of the risks of anorexia… I don’t think girls realize how harmful it can be. Starving yourself will lead to MORE problems than an empty stomach. And underweight girls shouldn’t be told to eat a cheeseburger, they should gain weight the healthy way just as overweight girls should lose weight the healthy way. sorry this is long, just whats on my mind.
