The law, which came into effect, stipulates that models would need to provide a doctor’s certificate attesting to their overall physical health, with special regard to their body mass index (BMI) – a measure of weight in relation to height.

The law, the health ministry says is aimed at fighting eating disorders, and inaccessible ideals of beauty, and it allows doctors to decide whether a model is too thin by taking into account their weight, age, and body shape.

Employers breaking the law could face fines of up to 75,000 euros (£63,500; $82,000) and up to six months in jail, according to BBC.

As from October 1, digitally altered photos of models will have to be marked photographie retouchée (English: retouched photograph).
