Anna Wintour, who used to defend the use of skinny models in the magazine’s photo shoots, has changed her mind and now speaks out against thin models.
The US Vogue Editor admits it is necessary to pay more attention to the health of fashion models. Therefore she wants designers to stop sending in sample clothes that are too small for women and can fit only children.
Each and every one of us needs to realise we are all responsible for the models’ health. We need to reverse the tyranny of sample clothes that just barely fit a 13-year-old on the edge of puberty.”
The 60-year-old also notes that it happens more an dmore often that Vogue uses less models on the cover of the magazine because girls quit the job as they get older and grow larger.
Most models work only when they have the uber-slim physique of the very young, stop getting jobs when they fill out and hence don’t last long enough to develop public personalities, like the 90s supermodels did. As a result, more magazine covers and lucrative beauty contracts have gone to singers and actresses.”
But despite all these words Anna isn’t interested in having Oscar-winning actress Gabourey Sidibe on the cover of Vogue. And unfortunately for her, other magazines don’t look to be really excited about the idea either.
One of editors said:
She’s a joke in the fashion community. What she wore on the red carpet at the Academy Awards wasn’t a dress, it was a tent.”
Vogue is venue where designers debut their best new pieces. All are of which are one of a kind and sample size. It would be impossible to get a regular-sized girl in those clothes, let alone Gabby,” another source explained.
