The latest edition of French Vogue magazine has some people up in arms, and rightly so it would seem. What seems to be the hurry with making young girls appear much older than they are? Especially pre-teen girls? This has for some strange reason become all the rage in some very well known magazines, and the most current edition of French Vogue magazine is the latest to push the envelope.
This is wrong in so many ways. To dress up a young girl for playful reasons, Halloween or just for fun with their friends is one thing, but French Vogue magazine’s latest spread for children in fashion borders too close to being sexual. Even just the facial expressions on these young girls faces look like they are thirty years old, not seven!
According to fashion news — “The 15-page feature about Christmas gifts, ‘ Cadeaux ‘, shows the ‘model-ettes’ dressed up to the nine-teens, their hair styled in glamorous ‘up’ do’s and chignons, or tumbling in curls around their shoulders; their naive attempts at a smouldering gaze disconcertingly adult and at odds with their baby-face complexions, albeit these are enhanced with blusher, lipstick and blue and green eyeshadow.”
If the idea of this fashion shoot was to get people talking, well French Vogue magazine has done it’s job. Take a look at the photo spread and decide for yourself.
