Fab Flash: UK Catwalk Ban Likely for Under-16 Models

A new inquiry commissioned by the British Fashion Council is proposing that girls under the age of 16 be banned from catwalks and photoshoots in the United Kingdom - meaning that models hoping to follow Kate Moss, Lily Cole, and Naomi Campbell, who all began modelling at 14 or 15, might have to wait a couple of years.

The Model Health Inquiry report that will be released on Wednesday is not recommending that "size zero" models be banned, but is asking for better health and nutritional advice for models, as well as improvements in ways models can complain about their working conditions. The British Fashion Council has indicated it will accept and implement the recommendations. I think this is definitely good news and I hope that they do actually go through with it!
