Home 10-year-old models sultry Vogue spread sparks controversy The debate about when a girl turns into a woman stretches as far back as society itself and will never be answered with any sort of clarity. Of course, we have rules and laws governing when its okay for a girl to work, drink alcohol or consent to having sex, but these statutes dont deal with lesser issues like wearing make-up, kissing boys or presenting oneself as a sexual entity. Some young women are in a hurry to age, and others take their sweet time about it. I suppose thats only natural, but whenever that growing up falls outside the expected parameters, we tend to worry as a society.
That worry has struck a fevered pitch the past few days after the newest issue of French Vogue was unveiled featuring a ten year old model dolled up in earrings, make-up and heels. The Parisian girl in question is Thylane Lena Rose Blondeau, and those working in the industry have compared her to Brigitte Bardot. Whether thats high praise or highly insulting for a ten year old girl, I suppose, is the question at hand. Take a look at one of Thylanes pictures below I find this picture a bit sad and creepy.
Theres nothing inherently wrong with it, but it seems to me a woman has decades to wear pretty clothes but only a few short years to behave carelessly like a child. Once someone grows up, theres no turning back. The first day a woman worries, I mean truly worries, about what she looks like leaving the house is the end of childhood. Why be in a hurry to start that process? According to ABC News, Blondeau has been modeling professionally for half her life. She reportedly had her first runway show at the age of five and hasnt looked back. A few of her other spreads include pictures of her without a top on, but I have no interest in seeing those, let alone linking you to them.
Im not sure if their existence makes me want to vomit or cry more. For the record, her parents have willingly signed off on everything shes done. The law requires it. If I ever have a daughter, she will be playing soccer, singing that stupid Miss Mary Mack song and reading books when shes ten. Something tells me, one day when shes older and ready to have kids of her own, shell appreciate those years when she fell in the mud and laughed about it. Source:-cinemablend.com
