Default French fashion bosses who employ models that are 'too skinny' to be sent to jail

Quote:
The new law comes in after Spain, Israel and Australia have already outlawed skinny models

Employers of dangerously skinny models could be jailed under a law approved by the French parliament.

The measure – which goes beyond rules already imposed in Spain and Israel – also forces magazine editors to admit when they have doctored photographs to make models look thinner.

The intention is to protect models from the potentially dangerous demands of agencies and fashion houses – but also to protect all girls and young women from “media bias” towards excessive thinness.

The law – an amendment to a much wider health bill – abandons an earlier proposal that all models working in France should satisfy a minimum body-mass requirement (a measure based on height and weight).
