Change has been happening in the fashion world lately, and for the better! Recently, two young women, Emma Stydahar, 17, and Carina Cruz, 16, petitioned Seventeen Magazine to stop photo shopping the faces and bodies of their models. And good news, they won! Seventeen has now stated they will no longer re-touch their models in the magazines.
Magazines usually dictate one preferred body type that is impossible to obtain. Photos are routinely photo shopped to create an impossible ideal of beauty. Not even the models look that perfect! As such, young girls look at these photos and believe that if they do not look that way, they are not ‘good-enough’.
“I don’t think girls should grow up in a world where beauty magazines dictate they should have a low self-esteem,” said Emma Stydahar.
Now the girls are taking on Teen Vogue, asking them to follow in Seventeen’s footsteps. Allistyle wishes you Good Luck, ladies!
