Carine Roitfeld prefers using "curvy" models.

The former French vogue editor insists she never used models she thought were too thin in the magazine as she felt a responsibility to her readers, in particular because she knew her children would see the images.

She said: "In my 10 years, I never put a girl that was too skinny in French Vogue. I think readers can be very impressionable and you have to pay attention to what you tell them and put in the magazine.

"And I tell myself that my kids are going to read the magazine and I don't want them to feel bad.

"I prefer to use curvy girls like Lara Stone."

Carine believes none of the women depicted in the magazine were ever objectified and she always tried to give the impression of "strong" females.

She added in an interview with the Independent newspaper: "I don't think the woman in French Vogue was an object. She was always a real woman.

"Even if there was a lot of bondage around her, I don't think she looks like she is suffering. If she wears high heels and a garter belt, it's because it's what she wants. She's a strong woman."
