Weigh In on Anna Wintour's Interview on 60 Minutes

Posted on May 18, 2009 at 4:04PM

headshot of Anna Wintour with bob haircut on taupe backgroundMorley Safer interviewed Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, on 60 Minutes last night -- well, if you call 12 minutes an interview --and one of the subjects was too-thin models in the fashion industry.

And how did Anna respond?

I had just been on a trip to Minnesota where I can only kindly describe most of the people that I saw as little houses," she says. "And I just felt like there’s such an epidemic of obesity in the United States. And for some reason everyone focuses on anorexia ... We need to spend money, time, and education on teaching people to eat , exercise, and take care of themselves in a healthier way.”

There is no doubt that we agree with you, Anna, that health is the issue here, but ultra-thin is no longer fashionable when health is at stake. 

What say you, girls?  Do you want to weigh in on this topic?

Not the greatest pic. She looks peeved.....

I AGREE that obesity is definetly more of a problem than anorexia from what I can tell.....I think models should be that healthy balance though! Model by definition is an example or display; it also should be a representation. So to me, models should be representations of what we desire: health, grace, positivity, stength...........not fat! and not too thin!!

Please! Our preteen and teen-aged daughters have enough pressure to compete and measure up to near-impossible standards today. Body image should not be at the top of that list. These fashion models are often who our daughters look to emulate (Mom's capris and corduroy just don't make the cut!) and if they are rail thin, our daughters are in danger!
