Yes she's 10

10-Year-Old Model's Grown-Up Look: High Fashion or High Risk? - ABC News

I looked at some of the fashion pictures on some blog devoted to her that was referenced in another article and they seriously looked like child pornography. One of them was topless

I was just looking at that article. Not sure what I think. For one she is more "covered" than most of the 5 year olds I see tearing around at Walmart. What I've been thinking about lately (with the Olympics around the corner, yes a year is around the corner) being so involved in gymnastics is that you do have to wonder when kid models and actors are limited on how much time they can "work" but child athletes can work out 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. But is it different when one is a model and one is an athlete? I don't really "get" a lot of the high fashion stuff. At times I look at those ads and see it more as an art form than "oh she's so skinny and sexy I want that outfit so I can be her" sort of thing. I don't think that there's any part of high fashion that involves "growing up" normally (with regard to the "growing up too fast" comment in the article) whether you are 10 or 30. It's just a different world.

It'd be hilariously appropriate if fashion modeling eventually got to the point where literally every model was visibly under 14. In a way, it'd even be good because everyone else would have to come to terms that much earlier with the reality that now you're a wizened old college student and nobody will ever mistake you again for some tantalizingly prepubescent naif. Wasn't Brooke Shields considered creepily young(-looking) back in the day?

Covered or not for me it's the heels, the makeup, the sexual suggestiveness of it (which were all over the blog pics). She's 10. She's a very pretty little girl in the pics where she actually looks like a little girl. "High fashion" or not, it's just very disturbing to me. No way in hell would any 10 year old daughter of mine be involved in that.

Art form is fine for girls who are of age and older. For 10 year olds-no. I can't even imagine what some pedophile is thinking about those pictures. Which is clearly the responsibility of the pedophile and not the child or the photos. But still.

I don't think I'd let my kid either, but not necessarily for those reasons. I would like my kids to spend their time being KIDS around other KIDS. I don't care if they dress up or do makeup or try to be "grown ups" (there were times my cousins dolled me up such that I looked like a cheap hooker!) but to me that's different when they are playing with their peers than when a bunch of adults are fussing over them for hours on end having them perform like a circus animal. The pedo thing always comes up and not to condone the child modeling, but pedos have their "type" that they will go after whether it's a superstar child model or the little girl in the trailer next door. I think that tends to get overplayed and the real reasons for why this is risky for the child get overlooked.

the fact that she is 10 years old and being proffered as a model for what is sexy just infuriates me to the point that I have no idea where to even start in on this one . . . I'll calm down and get back to ya!

I know and get all of that but it still bothers me. I liked to play dress up with my friends and with my Mom's stuff but that was private stuff, not paraded in front of the world in magazines and all over the internet with the intent to provoke. Because any designer or fashion magazine who would pose a 10 year old girl in such a way, well that's clearly their intent. Unless 12 and 13 year olds are over the hill these days. Too many wrinkles and lines.

If that 10 year old is fantasy, well yes..whose fantasy is that? mama cass wasn't talking about that one obviously but ?

No, it's just an aspirational picture.

Yes-since grown women are buying and reading those magazines, maybe that's it. We all look too old (even teens and 20 somethings) and really need to aspire to look like 10 year olds. And 10 year olds need to aspire to look at least three times their age.

Yikes. They say they couldn't find a picture without her arm linked with William's, so they had to mirror her arms and "inadvertently" slimmed her waist (made her look like a freakish Barbie body). A complaint was registered with Britain’s Press Complaints Commission.

If you thought that 10 year old in Vogue was bad...

Quote:
In a move that has shocked fashion onlookers, scantily-clad young girls wearing make-up and sporting voluminous up-dos are promoting a new range of lingerie that is targetted at girls as young as four years old.
Combining lingerie and lounge wear to form 'loungerie,' the Jours Après Lunes line for four to 12-year-olds features a range of panties, bras, camisoles and T-shirts with lace edges, ribboned bow detailing and nautical stripes.

The shots feature young girls in poses and styling that seem far too premature for their ages.

Wearing striped bras and panties, they play with make-up and jewellery, strings of pearls wrapped around their small frames.
Most of the photos are too risque to feature on MailOnline, the bare legs and stomachs of the girls deeming them inappropriate for publication.

In one shot, a girl wears Jackie O-style sunglasses while lounging back on a pillow, her modesty protected by just panties and a cropped polka-dot tied top.


In another, three young girls play together, their hair set in Amy Winehouse-style beehives and their lips painted bright pinks and reds.
Fashionista, which broke the story, says: 'What’s disturbing about Jours Après Lunes is... that it’s lingerie for people who probably shouldn’t be old enough to even know what lingerie is.'

The label also includes a range for babies and another for older teenagers and ladies, or 'femmes'. The 'unsettling' styling sees a grown model 'made to look like a child, while the actual children are made to look like adults,' according to the site.

What's this world coming to? Isn't the world supposed to be fighting pedophilia and child molestors? Instead, some people are giving it legitimacy by sexualizing children more and more. Its digusting, sick and very disturbing.

Reading international fashion magazines can be tough because of the language barrier. Words appear out of place, phrases get lost in translation, meaning gets misconstrued.
But Jezebel has confirmed that Vogue Italia's "slave earrings" is not, as we had hoped, a mistranslation.
The Italian magazine currently features "Slave Earrings," by which they seem to mean hoop earrings, in its "Shop The Trend" section, instructing readers that hoop earrings are an updated classic... from the era of US slavery:
Jewellery has always flirted with circular shapes, especially for use in making earrings. The most classic models are the slave and creole styles in gold hoops. If the name brings to the mind the decorative traditions of the women of colour who were brought to the southern Unites (sic) States during the slave trade, the latest interpretation is pure freedom. Colored stones, symbolic pendants and multiple spheres. And the evolution goes on.
On the one hand, should the enslavement of Africans in the United States be mined for style inspiration? That just feels wrong.
'Slave Earrings' On Vogue Italia: Offensive Or Innocent?

Ugh, how insensitive. And wasn't Italian Vogue the one that once did an issue featuring only black models? What a huge step back this is.

Topless, but she has nothing to hide. I was topless a lot when I was ten and are still be when I'm at topless-beaches. It's a pity really that a female chest is so taboo that even a ten year old is sexulalized just for being bare chested.
I read threads about these pictures and the posts written by those who opposed them and those post were actually the most shocking ones. They compared a ten year old with porn-stars and prostitutes, that is taking it too far and an insult towards the child.
