Israel’s Government has passed a law stipulating that all models used in ad campaigns or any form of media will have to provide no later than a three month old health record stating that they are over the malnourished BMI limit of 18.5. Further to that, the government has said that all ads that are photoshopped in anyway to make the models (male or female) look thinner must be explicitly stated. Fashion Collections
