Janice Dickinson isn't the only person that's dubious about Vogue's new health initiative. Jezebel's Jena Sauers asked Cindy Crawford whether she had any thoughts on the issue, to which she responded, 'Honestly, not really.'
According to the model, society needs to change before the industry will. 'I think that the fashion industry is in the consumer's hands because if they buy into it, nothing will change,' she argued. 'If consumers don't like it that models are too skinny, or too young and they don't buy magazines, then believe me, the magazines will have to change.' While there may be truth in that, it seems only right that the industry takes a firm stance, even if doing so is only the starting point in realising real change.
Crawford doesn't seem convinced. 'If you make too many rules - like, 'You can't work this many hours' — it doesn't work, because sometimes you have to. Sometimes you have to get up early or be prepared to do the job in the freezing cold. I think that, again though, models have to have a voice and speak up for themselves, every day, on the job ... People have to respect each other. And if you're working with someone who doesn't respect you, then leave.'
