  1. Skinny Models Issue:

    Linda Evangelista’s Body “now” should be the ideal size of a working model. She’s fuller, yet slim….her lines take great pictures, yet she’s not anorexic skinny.

    If Vogue are so concerned with these young and anorexic models, then don’t hire them……hire 27+ older models, who does the Job well and women can relate too. If Vogue do this, the designers will follow through………….

  2. 27+? Really? The fact of the matter is that the most money, in any industry, is spent by teenagers and young adults (at least in America). The demographic that supports the high(-er) fashion industry is, of course, a bit older, but few people want to “shop their age”.
    Granted, 27 is a wonderful AVERAGE age for models, but I do not think it is a reasonable age to set as a minimum. 18, 19, maybe even 20- so that models are legally independent and get the chance to at least begin a college education- would make more sense. 14, 15, and 16 is far too young.
