Janice Dickinson and Cindy Crawford have some not-so-positive opinions about Vogue’s new healthy model initiative
This should come as no surprise, but Janice Dickinson isn’t impressed and she’s not afraid to say it.
This time, Dickinson is mouthing off about Vogue’s new international Health Initiative. The initiative brought together all 19 of the magazine’s international editors, who co-signed a pact stating that they would not use models who appear to suffer from eating disorders or who are under the age of 16.
Dickinson, however, isn’t buying it.
“Please, look at Anna Wintour,” she told Fox News. “She’s thinner than thin.”
Though Dickinson is used to sharing her two cents, Cindy Crawford has also voiced her less-than-enthused feelings about the initiative.
“I don’t know, I guess it’s… great,” she told Jezebel. “But that was never one of my issues, so. I think that the fashion industry is in the consumers’ hands. Because if they buy into it, nothing will change. If consumers don’t like it that models are too skinny, or too young, and they don’t buy the magazines, then believe me, then the magazines will have to change.”
Though the initiative has been heralded far and wide as “groundbreaking” (as Tyra Banks said in her open letter to Vogue), Crawford’s point about consumers affecting change is definitely something to take into account. The supermodel/entrepreneur also said that she doubts the new rules will actually help the fashion industry, adding that the easiest way to fix a bad work situation is to simply speak up or leave.
