Anna Wintour—of the "Miss Anna doesn't like fat people" Wintours—recently spoke at Harvard University. "Wintour told the audience, 'Each and every one of us needs to realize we are all responsible for models' health,' and called on designers to reverse the 'tyranny of [sample] clothes that just barely fit a 13-year-old on the edge of puberty.' She also said that Vogue doesn't Photoshop girls** to make them look thinner, although it will edit out small imperfections." (**However, Wintour will Photoshop cameramen's tummies to make them look thinner.) [HuffPost]
