A Step in the Right Direction from Vogue Magazine

Props are due to Vogue magazine, if not to parent company Conde Nast. According to the Associated Press, Vogue will no longer work with children younger than 16, or women with eating disorders.

So too young and too thin is out.

This applies to all the editions of Vogue published in the U.S. and worldwide. It’s an important step–although only a step. Sixteen is still very young; and for a mother of girls it is shocking to hear of children as young as fourteen modeling adult clothes.

Also, Conde Nast has no plans to adopt these guidelines across the company–which means that its other fashion magazines will continue to hire children and dangerously thin women.
