Believe of not, the French have now passed a law that prohibits thin girls from working as models in Paris. Under the law, models will have to show they have a Body Mass Index (BMI) above a certain level. Of course, they will imprison agencies who use girls that do not meet their guideline. They will now go to prison for 6 months. Guess the French chased out the rich anyway, so I suppose the fashion industry will migrate to London or Milan. The primary reason they employ thin models is so they can all wear the same size outfits put out by designers.
The French government has nothing else to reform but the fashion industry. Shame. For under their fiscal policies people will starve as they destroy the economy anyway and they then will not be able to find employment being below some BMI number.
