When Zooey Deschanel was 17 years old, she was already a thoughtful articulate girl ready to speak her mind. Case and point, her letter to the editors of Vogue asking for the magazine to expand their definition of beauty to include more than just one body type.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Deschanel’s costar in the hit film ‘500 Days of Summer,’ posted the actress’s letter on his Tumblr account.

She wrote, “Why would you want to limit the spectrum of beauty to an “ideal” when you, as a popular womens magazine, have the opportunity to expand it?…Most of the women, and certainly most of the adolescent girls, in the United States do not feel completely secure with themselves, especially with their appearance; is insecurity something you want to advocate?”

Vogue did publish the letter, although it could certainly be argued that the magazine hasn’t expanded the “ideal” that Deschanel wrote about. More recently, Thandie Newton spoke about her displeasure with the lack of black women on the covers of Vogue.

What do you think? Do fashion magazines like Vogue make women insecure and limit the “spectrum of beauty” like Deschanel said?
