Vogue.com reports today on the Italian fashion industry’s next step in the debate over super-skinny models: introducing a licence to model.

These will be issued after an assessment by the Association of Fashion Services, ASSEM, the Italian chamber of fashion, and a scientific committee made up of doctors, nutritionists, psychologists and other experts to ensure the girls are old enough, healthy enough and have a sufficeint Body Mass Index.
