Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
Is this sentence standard:
"Vogue admitted that it is much harder TO ARGUE in modelling today."
In case this is standar, what does 'to argue' mean in this context?
Note: I add this is a sentence I read somewhere, even though it doesn't really seem standard to me.

I don't know what you mean by "standard", but I can tell you that the phrase as it is does not make sense. Either some words are missing, or the wrong words were usedSource(s): dutch/NL

The sentence does not make much sense, at least, not on it's own. In an article on what it is like to be a model, and the rights of models with respect to their employers, it might, but, we cannot tell that from this sentence alone.

To make it clearer, you might say, "Vogue Magazine admitted (insert roughly when they said that) that is is much harder to argue (argue what, Politics?) in modeling today."
As for to "to argue" it is vague and unclear.
