Beauty By Example

Paris Vogue assembles an inspirational cast of beauties spanning over three decades of modelling for its November 2012 issue, proving that beauty has relevance at any age. Photographer David Sims captures seventeen year old newcomers Moa Aberg and Asia Piwka alongside top models Liu Wen, Anais Mali, Iselin Steiro and Aymeline Valade all of whom are in their twenties, and fabulous forty-something veterans Yasmin Lebon, Estelle LeFebure and Cecilia Chancellor. It appears that the CFDA's recent age restriction guidelines which ban the use of models under the age of 16 in fashion shows, may be taking full effect. The nineteen editions of Vogue magazine have responded also, perhaps in part to the public's desire to see women rather than girls barely shy of their teens playing high fashion dress-ups, by pledging to not knowingly feature models under the age of 16 within its pages. Looking at this editorial, CFDA president Diane Von Furstenburg's words, "We do impact the lives of women and we can set a strong example of a well-balanced life on our runways", never rang so true.
