Brigitte websiteBrigitte, Germany's most popular womens magazine, will soon be without models as they've decided to only use 'real women'.

From 2010, the magazine will feature regular readers and other women in all of the features the magazine runs.

In a statement to reporters, Andreas Lebert, editor-in-chief, said: "We will show women who have an identity — the 18-year-old student, the head of the board, the musician, the football player."

The magazine is now encouraging women to submit photos of themselves to be considered for a photo shoot.

This news comes after a group of politicians in France want to create a new law which would mean all published images will have to say if they've been digitally manipulated.

Quote: "We will show women who have an identity the 18-year-old student, the head of the board, the musician, the football player."

Interesting choice of stereotypes!

I think the term missing here is 'professional models', as anyone who poses for the camera is a model. Does this mean all those professional models who sell themselves as 'real women' will be excluded due to their employment staus? I am not a fan of the skinny, plastic models that stalk the catwalks, but this is a gimmick to sell magazines, and you can bet they will be very selective with which 'real women' make into their pages.
