Vogue Doesn't Really Abide By its Model Pact

Remember when Vogue U.S. and its international counterparts joined together last year to declare a pact to govern the responsible use of models? Well, it appears Vogue Mexico doesn't. A Kevin Sinclair-shot editorial in its November issue features 15-year old model, Julie Borawska. This is problematic, as the Vogue pact, which includes six points of interest, states that the various magazines "will not knowingly work with models under the age of 16." The purpose of the pact was "to reflect [Vogue's] commitment to the health of the models who appear on the pages and the well-being of their readers." Sound off in the comments section below as to what you think of the eight-page "Blue Fever" spread and keep in mind, this isn't the first time a Vogue has violated the pact. Last year, 15 year-old Ondria Hardin appeared in Vogue China’s August issue and an editorial in Vogue Japan December issue featured 14 year-old Thairine Garcia.
