“Vogue has once again broken its own health initiative by including 15-year-old Polish model Julie Borawska in the November issue of Vogue Mexico.

This marks the third official age violation of Vogue‘s Health Initiative. Launched in June 2012, one of the tenets stipulated was that the magazine would no longer use models under the age of 16. Things got off to a rocky start with two violations in quick succession. The first came with 15-year-old Ondria Hardin in the pages of the August 2012 edition of Vogue China. The magazine’s editor in chief, Angelica Cheung, was quick to apologize for the error, and even Jonathan Newhouse, chairman and chief executive of Condé Nast International, commented on how “very serious” the new rule was to Vogue, and how the company would do “everything possible to prevent future errors.””
