Why we Hate Thylane Blondeau's Photos for French Vogue

I watched The Tyra Bank's Show the other day with the topic about how far can parents go just to get their kids into showbiz or modeling. Like Tyra and the rest of her audience, I was shocked to see the video of parents agreeing their young kids to get breast augmentation, botox, etc. during the interview. Okay, I was able to get over of that issue, but last night, I was more shocked to see these photos of Thylane Blondeau.

The 10 year old Thylane posed for the French Vogue's January issue wearing sexy dresses, stilettos, heavy makeup, and red nails. I just wonder what kind of mother will allow a daughter to do a fashion spread like this at a very tender age.

Look at her. How do you feel about those sexy and provocative poses? Creepy and disturbing, right? You know, I have a daughter who loves playing dress up, acting, and posing for the camera too. IMO, there is nothing wrong about it because young girls normally imitate the older ones. You just don't have to (allow them) cross the line. As a mom, you should be able to identify what is wholesome and what is not. That's the same reason why I limit the photos of my daughter in Facebook and my blogs to protect her from online predators and sex offenders like pedophiles. I heard that there are who people grab photos of kids and upload them in adult sites.

Going back to Thylane's fashion spread with Vogue, I really feel that the mother should've declined to Vogue's offer in doing this job. She must wait for 8 years more until allowing her child to do it. A 10 year old kid should dress like a 10 year old and model to brands like Gap, Osh Kosh, and similar companies only.

My fellow mothers out there, what do you think?

  1. I'm not a mother yet. Maybe soon.

    I was wondering more about what 'theme' vogue was going for or what 'message' were they trying to give. I can't think of what it could possibly be.

    This is an interesting entry.

  2. I'm no mother; but I act as one to my younger sister who is of the same age. We never allow her to wear any kind of makeup (but lip balm, for her dry lips) because it will make her skin age fast. we know the consequences; but seems like this girl's mother doesn't care as long as she gets moolah out of her little angel.

    kids need to be kids before they do grown-up stuffs. let's not deprive them of that opportunity to run around, get their knees wounded, have puppy loves, chase dragonflies, etc. we've enjoyed it back then, why can't our children do that as well? :)

    sorry, mahaba ah. hehe.

  3. I agree with your points. Kids should be allowed to be kids. IMO children nowadays are growing up too fast. Tsk..tsk..tsk...

  4. Whoa. Can't agree with you more. What's next, infants in stilettos? Jesus.

  5. sad. we have the same sentiments with regards to this matter. :(
