Real Women Are More Interesting Than Teenagers, Says Vogue Editor

“When they changed from the supermodel to the skinny girl, I remember Eva Herzigova was not working, and Cindy Crawford, all these girls they were working less and less. And I remember at an Hermès show a few seasons ago, they put on the runway with these young teenager girls Naomi [Campbell] and Stephanie Seymour, and they look almost big if you compare them [with the other models]. But they were looking so beautiful because they look like women. We are used to seeing teenagers — 14, 15, 17, 18 years old — they are not able to use their bodies and their bodies are still not shaped. I don’t know why it became a prototype of a beauty, like Twiggy in the sixties or Veruschka. But you realize the women with the bodies are much more interesting than teenagers.”

Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani, on why she was thrilled to put three models with voluptuous bodies on the cover of this month’s Vogue. [NYMag.com]Want to contact the writer of this post? {encode=”julie@thefrisky.com” title=”Email her”}!
