A month after the death of an anorexic model in Brazil, Italy's government and fashion industry on Friday adopted a voluntary code aimed at promoting a more "generous" look for women. Under the pact, Italy's highly competitive fashion industry agreed not to hire models younger than 16. The industry also promised to add larger sizes to its collections and require models to submit medical proof they do not suffer from eating disorders.
