Alexandra Shulman Instigates Size Zero Backlash

You know the model weight debate is getting serious when a Vogue editor gets involved! The Independent is reporting that Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue, sent out a letter to some of the biggest names in fashion including Stella McCartney, John Galliano, Karl Lagerfeld and Alexander McQueen blaming them “for forcing fashion magazines to find unrealistically tiny models to squeeze into their designs”. It appears that sample sizes are too small for even size 0 models and stylists are having to squish models into too-tight clothing for photo shoots. Shulman admits that Vogue frequently retouches photos to make models look bigger. Could this be the end to rail thin models and protruding ribcages on the runway? Probably not, but it’s nice to see somebody of Shulman’s status calling attention to the problem.
