The ‘Stereotype’ Model

skinny

There is this fascination that those outside the fashion world believe that to be a model you have to be ‘verging anorexia’, boney and rather unattractive. This stereotype which has been created is one that couldn’t be more untrue! Although a lot of models are incredibly slim, that is the desirable look for those within the fashion industry. However┬áthe French Government are very much on the fence about the whole situation; although they appreciate the desired look by those buying, creating and selling, they have noticed the impact and the role models which have been created, and are starting to see the effects of this.

Therefore they are likely to pass the bill on ‘banning super-skinny models’ to allow a sense of relatability and to teach the fashion world that is it worldwide, and it reaches every single one of us, meaning there needs to be a lot of care and consideration about those who we look up to; a lesson I think everyone could benefit from.
