    The “Vogue” Health Initiative Introduces New Era for Fashion Models!

    Vogue news is in and it’s pretty impressive. The editors of the paramount fashion magazine have decided to instate new guidelines when casting models. Now, models have to be over 16 years of age and they cannot be so skinny they appear to have an eating disorder.

    All 19 Vogue editors around the world have agreed to the new regulations, prompting a sigh of relief from many.

    Vogue believes that good health is beautiful…Vogue editors around the world want the magazines to reflect their commitment to the health of the models who appear on the pages and the wellbeing of their readers (Jonathan Newhouse, Condé Nast International chairman, Vogue online).

    I think it’s fantastic Vogue is pursuing this initiative. Finally, the editors understand that many of the women they feature just don’t portray the everyday woman. And if their intention is to sell to the everyday woman, they need to feature models that readers can relate to.

    This is also great for the models of Vogue. Now they don’t need to starve themselves in order to meet unrealistic expectations. I’m sure they’ll still need to be slim, but slim is fine if it’s healthy. There is no way emaciated could ever be considered healthy. I can only imagine that Vogue’s decision has come as a huge relief for models.

    Vogue’s decision is also fantastic for its young readers. The desire to be “perfect” is a common sentiment, and when young girls view the overly skinny women in Vogue, they get a false representation of what is considered “normal” and “beautiful.” As a result, many young girls starve themselves in order to meet these standards. This is ironic since the models themselves have to starve to meet the unrealistic standards.

    Vogue is considered the pinnacle when it comes to fashion magazines. So with it pushing The Health Initiative forward, it should encourage other fashion magazines to introduce similar policies when it comes to hiring models. This could be the beginning of a new era in modeling and I’m excited to see where it leads the industry. I pray other magazines follow suit, and that they do so sooner rather than later.

    What do the girls think about Vogue’s Health Initiative? Do you think other fashion magazines should follow suit?
