Fab Flash: French Fashion Industry Takes Anti-Anorexia Action

Yesterday, the French fashion industry joined with the country's Health Ministry to sign a charter promoting healthy body images in magazines and on the Paris runways.

The charter outlines a series of guidelines, committing the industry to work toward "a diversity of body representations" and refrain from using "images of people, in particular youth, that could contribute to promoting a model of extreme thinness."

This action follows the recent inquiry by the British Fashion Council on the effects of airbrushing, all spurred by the anorexia-related deaths of several South American models in 2006, including Brazilian Ana Carolina Reston.
