Would you let your kid pose in Vogue like this?

As I visited Style.com (as I often do), I came across an article about Carine Roitfeld’s final issue as the controversial editor of French Vogue. The title intrigued me: French Vogue Grooms Its Youngest Models Yet. Little did I know that the models were little girls who look like they’re between the ages of 6 and 8ish. This takes playing “dress up” to another level. They are draped in fine jewels, fabulous garments, and beautiful heels. And their faces are painted flawlessly with makeup, causing them to look like little teenagers/young women. The question the article poses, Is this too much? What do YOU think mommies? I’m still undecided on the matter. If my 6 1/2 year old daughter had an opportunity to appear in Vogue magazine dressed like an adult fashion model, would I say no? Perhaps I should have an answer but I don’t. She wears makeup and costumes for dance competition. Is that different? Be real….would you let your daughter do it? Something to think about……

Be fabYOUlous!!!

  1. If the girls were really “playing dress-up”–smiling, laughing, interacting with each other and with adult models–then this would be a clever and endearing editorial. That would be evokative of good memories we all have of playing dress up and would have celebrated childhood, rather than “twisting” it. This is food for thought…interesting post!

  2. If I had full control…..a few of these are way to sensuous and just wrong! I think it’s still childlike to show a girl with makeup, dressed up as long as it looks like a little girl……anything over the top would be out of the question. My daughter is almost six and gorgeous but to put her in this garb would feel like nothing more than exploitation….in addition, it makes me shun the product!
