These images are part of a photo shoot editorial in the latest issue of Vogue Paris. Seriously, what ever happened to little girls?!
Maybe I'm overreacting - are these photos meant to be cute?? The make-up is heavy, the necklines are plunging, and the body language/facial expressions are not what you see when little girls play dress-up! These images are obviously adult-staged and adult-choreographed... Personally, as a mom of a little girl, I find this even more disturbing than appalling.
Welcoming any thoughts on the subject from all you other moms out there...!! Want to know I'm not alone in shock here....
- What happens subconsciously when people look at these pictures?
- Can these images make people associate young girls with adult sexuality?
- Can these possibly make us perceive kids as more sophisticated than they really are?
- Will photos like these put inappropriate and unfair pressure on little girls to grow up?
