Professional model ban for German magazine - Brigitte, Germany's most popular women's 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.
