The Israeli government has passed a law banning the use of underweight models in advertising and on the catwalk.The new law requires models to provide medical proof of their weight, and for adverts to state if an image has been altered to make a model appear thinner.
Models in Israel are now required to have a body mass index (BMI) – a calculation based on a ratio of weight to height – of no less than 18.5.
