Vogue no longer putting too young or unhealthy models in its magazines

Here's some good news. 45989.jpeg

Vogue says it will no longer use too-skinny or underage models in its magazine. The change -- who knows why it took so long to come p with such an obvious policy? -- is to start with next month's issue.

Anna Wintour, editor in chief of American Vogue, told Showbiz Tonight this the other day: "We're just very concious that we do not want to put anyone in the magazine that might have some sort of eating disorder, so we're really doing our best to be careful."

Word is that casting directors will even be asked to start checking IDs at things like photo shoots and fashion shows, according to the Associated Press. 

Check out a video of Wintour's comments -- and others' reactions -- here.
