10 Year Old Model Does Vogue Spread…Too Sexy?

So many girls dream of playing dress up and looking like mommy.

For many, the fascination with clothes, shoes, and make-up start early.

For 10 year old Thylane Loubry Blondeau, it became a reality when she posed for Vogue Magazine.

The photos have raised many eyebrows.

They appeared in French Vogue, and have sparked a lot of controversy. Some say the photos represent high fashion and sensuality that Vogue is known for. Others (especially in the U.S) think the spread is obscene, sexually exploitive, and inappropriate for a 10-year-old.

Her father is French soccer player, Patrick Blondeau.  Thylane’s mother, Veronika Loubry, entertainment reporter turned fashion designer doesn’t understand what the uproar is all about. She said,  “The only thing that shocks me about the photo is the necklace that she’s wearing, which is worth 3 million Euros,” or about $4.3 million.

I have 2 boys, so I don’t have the same outrage that a lot of moms with little girls have.

I know as a ten year old little girl, I would have loved to have gotten all dolled up and shot for Vogue (however, since I was chubby, had big buck teeth and wore glasses, Vogue prolly would have never called me), and I know for a fact my parents would have NEHEVERRR allowed it.

HOWEVER, if I had a daughter, this shoot would have been a definite NO-NO. It’s something about the whole leopard print, pouty lips, suggestive posing, stillettos, full make up that just CREEPS ME OUT! These kinda pics are generally cheesey to me when it’s models in their 20s and 30s…but seeing a 10 year old simulate poses that conjure thoughts of being sexy and suggesting sex are just downright GAH-ROSE!!!!

Maybe I’m not “cultured” enough or don’t share the same “artistic expression” as some fancy smancy Vogue fashion editior to see the “edgyness” of the shots…but if I were a mom with a daughter, the last thing I’d want is for my child to be perpetuating sexual images before she even has boobies. And to think of all the perverts looking at these pics and what runs through their minds???

It just reminds me of the saying “too much, too soon”. The only magazine my lil sweet Mariah/Chloe/Callie would be modeling for is Highlights Magazine.

Everyone is pointing fingers at her parents, but the fashion industry should take some responsibility too. There is nothing wrong with young girls pursuing modeling, but the Industry seems to perpetuate this standard of young girls gracing Catwalks, Covers, and Campaigns for adult products.

Even from the days of young Brooke Shields, the Industry has been glorifying young girls as the ideal body and beauty image. Elle Fanning, 13 is the face of Marc by Marc Jacobs, while True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld, 14 is the latest face of Miu Miu. Thirteen and 14 year olds don’t wear designer…they shop at Baby Gap and Forever 21. When will it stop?!

Here are the Vogue pics as well as some other pics of Thylane from her Facebook Fan Page. I think she is a very cute little girl, and she looks the prettiest with little makeup and more natural shots. The Vogue pics look borderline hooker/porn. You decide:

Her other modeling photos…

One thing is for sure…Thylane definitely has a bright modeling future ahead of her. I just hope she doesn’t get caught up in the Industry and she enjoys being a kid.

Despite how grown up she looks in many of her pictures, at 10 years old, she should still be enjoying wearing shoes that light up when she walks, staying up late watching Nickelodeon, and dreaming of Justin Beiber.

      Who are you to wish someone’s death simply for photos? You’re the monster. I do not understand the controversy. You must have the spirit in no position to judge these porn pictures, sex and else again, especially in the model was only 10 years! I see by looking at these beautiful little girls one up and dressed with clothing and jewelry from his mother.

    These pictures disgust and frighten me about the future of our youth. If it is acceptable for a 10 year old to look like this, what will the standards be at 15 years old? Definitely too much too soon.

      I agree! This is WAY too early. I mean, it looks amazing, you’ve gotta admit that, but the heels and stuff? Just a bit over the top…

    No way in hell would I want my daughter to look like a slut like this!!! There is nothing sexy about a 10 year old trying to look like a 25 year old. These photos are very disturbing.

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she keeps the
    idea of a user in his/her brain that how a user can understand
    it. So that’s why this post is perfect. Thanks!
