Why doesn't the industry portray life as it is instead of creating an image people seem to strive for?

Why doesn't the industry portray life as it is instead of creating an image people seem to strive for?

The industry continues to portray young beautiful models (mostly young white women)who have bodies and wear cloths that are unobtainable by most of their audience. How can we develop an attractive look that is obtainable?

All answers/questions are welcomed

Thank you!

      Should there be regulations (imposed by government)? Or should the industry be responsible for the damages it creates and self regulate? We are all free to think and act as we chose, even if it hurts us. But should we be able to affect the judgement of others without penalty?
