"This month we also feature (...) models, who bring more to the profession than simply a long, lean body that can walk and pose.
I wish I could say the same for the young women who were just on the runways at the New York fall collections. Overall, they were pale and thin, and entirely lacking in the joyfulness and charm that once defined the supermodels. This is, of course, not their fault: Designers now near-uniformly favor a non-vivacious, homogeneous ideal"
- Anna Wintour, Vogue April 2008
