Christian Dior and Gucci will no longer cast underweight models

Under an agreement between two of the world's biggest luxury conglomerates models must provide medical certificates obtained within six months of the job proving they are healthy

Louis Vuitton is one of the brands that will ban size zero models.

Unlike the French law, the charter also will apply to the global Kering and LVMH brands with runway collections presented in Milan, London and NY.

The two groups, whose brands include Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Gucci, Saint Laurent, Christopher Kane, Louis Vuitton and Dior, have committed to banning the casting of French size 32 for women - the equivalent of a United States size zero or UK size four. There also must be food and drink on premises, as well as access to a psychologist or therapist during working hours.

The charter bans size 0 casting requirements and requires agencies to prove models are healthy enough to work. The two groups said they hoped to set a new global standard for the fashion industry.

Some Western critics have suggested the Nobel Peace Prize she won in 1991 as a champion of democracy be revoked. The Prime Minister announced gratis visas for all Myanmar nationals keen to visit India.

In addition, models below the age of 16 must not be hired by brands to take part in shows or shootings representing an adult.

In a step forward for healthy modeling requirements in the fashion industry, two French luxury conglomerates officially banned size zero models from their brands' runways and photo shoots.

Other new rules in the charter guarantee models the right to safe accommodations and require they "explicitly accept" assignments that involve nudity or changes to their appearance.

This project was put in place by the two major fashion firms LVMH and Kering, which look after a string of prestigious label, including Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Fendi and Stella McCartney. A monitoring committee, made up of representatives of the brands, agencies and models, will meet each year (once every six months for the first year).

The score flatters the US , who gave their second consecutive pitiful performance and are lucky to remain mostly unscathed. He's got bags of pace and deadly finishing ability, fitting for a man affectionately known as "the panther".

In a bid to discourage unhealthy body standards and the abuse of young models, France's biggest fashion brands LVMH and Kering are working to ban the use of ultra-thin models on both the runway and for ad campaigns.

Both fashion houses said they had been prompted to act out of concern for models' wellbeing.

"We hope to inspire the entire industry, thus making a real difference in the working conditions of models industry-wide", he added.

In 2015, Sofia Mechetner, then 14, modelled for Dior, while Karl Lagerfeld said in March that he thought girls of 15 were old enough to model.

Those upset by Texas A&M's shocking 45-44 football loss to UCLA can find solace in knowing coach Kevin Sumlin is upset, too. It's arguable that A&M wouldn't have blown the lead had Starkel not gotten hurt. "Our players were more talented tonight".

Antoine Arnault, a board member of LVMH, said to AFP: "As the leader in the luxury sector, we believe it is our role to be at the forefront of this initiative".
