10 Year-old Vogue Model Controversy

This story is causing a lot of debate! Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau is the ten year-old model whose on the cover of French Vogue. These pictures are just two of what's inside the magazine.

The outcry is that she's too young and where do we draw the line? What message are we sending young girls/tweens when they see this? Another point of view is that this is art and we should lighten up.

My point of view is that it's one thing if your daughter wants to play dress-up at home - after all it's fun, but this is a different ballgame and it's really the parents we should be asking these questions to as they would have had to sign off on all of this.

In this article Click here it's mentioned that the mother has had to shield her daughter from all of the negativity and the FB fan page was deleted. I actually feel for this child as she would be too young to know any of this would happen and due to her age, obviously too young to face such criticism.

What's your opinion?
