Quote of the Day: British ‘Vogue’ Editor on Thin Models

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News

Alexandra Shulman

"People always say 'Why do you have thin models? That's not what real people look like,' but nobody really wants to see a real person looking like a real person on the cover of Vogue... I think Vogue is a magazine that's about fantasy to some extent and dreams, and an escape from real life... People don't want to buy a magazine like Vogue to see what they see when they look in the mirror. They can do that for free... I get fed up with having to deal with the question of why are models thin, that sort of bores me."

- Alexandra Shulman, editor of Vogue UK, explains why you won't be seeing any real-sized models under her reign of the fashion glossy.
