(Dear BFC: we could have told you about this a long time ago.) BFC reps tell the Telegraph that it is writing a letter to the British Society of Magazine Editors and others about "digitally-enhanced body images and the part it plays in magazines in perpetuating an unachievable aesthetic." The Council is also concerned that the health guidelines for models that they recommended earlier this year are "not being implemented." The Guardian says that "the recommendations include a ban on models under the age of 16 and non-smoking and drug free backstage environments."ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode.
