!! OMG, times a'changing: Vogue sets age minimum for models !!

If you're a modelesque 15-year-old girl, then SORRY, VOGUE DOESN'T WANT YOU. The fashion mag announced today that from the June issues forward, no edition of Vogue -- including all 19 international editions -- will work with any model under the age of 16. But the editors aren't stopping there. The statement also binds fashion's elite to a six-point commitment to promoting healthy body image:

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.

@eko i wouldnt applaud just yet...we shall see if its true. i mean several designers said they wouldnt use skinny girls. and all you still see is sick looking girls walking down the runways,some even fall down and its not because of the shoes.
