Anna Wintour Blames Extreme Model Thinness for Lack of Supermodels in Last Decade

>> On Monday night, Anna Wintour joined Michael Kors and Natalia Vodianova in Boston for a panel on model health, where she called on designers to reverse the “tyranny of [sample] clothes that just barely fit a 13-year-old on the edge of puberty.”

She went on to say that the preference for extreme thinness in the past decade has eroded models' clout, WWD reports:

Most work only when they have the uberslim physique of the very young, stop getting jobs when they fill out and hence don’t last long enough to develop public personalities, like the Nineties supermodels did. As a result, more magazine covers and lucrative beauty contracts have gone to singers and actresses, [Wintour] observed.

On a separate note, Wintour also said Vogue uses Photoshop to erase small imperfections, but not to make girls thinner than they are.
