Seventeen's 'Body Peace Treaty'.

Remember back in May when 14-year-old Julia Bluhm started a petition asking Seventeen magazine to "commit to printing one unaltered -- real -- photo spread per month?" Well, that petition ended up more than 85,000 signatures strong, and now, Seventeen has committed to making a real change. In the magazine's August issue, Seventeen's editor-in-chief, Ann Shoket, revealed the publication's 'Body Peace Treaty' in which she commits to showing real girls. The petition also promises to keep readers included in what goes on behind the scenes on photo shoots, and to "Never change girls' body or face shapes," it then adds "Never have, never will" in parentheses. Seventeen is also vowing to remain accessible to readers, with Shoket encouraging girls to write to a general email address or directly to her "if something in the magazine confuses [them] or makes [them] feel bad." Way to go Seventeen!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
