10-Year-Old Supermodel

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: France. Thank you for the Statue of Liberty, your delicious fries and... 10-year-old supermodels? The latest "it" girl in the world of fashion is indeed a girl, as in, child. Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau, aside from having an exhaustive name, is a glamour model with an impressive portfolio ranging from Vogue to other high-end editorials. Child models are nothing new, so long as they are selling toys or school supplies. But Thylane has created a worldwide controversy for her latest images, complete with heavy make-up and stiletto heels, which appear in French magazine Cadeaux. They come in the wake of a recent Government initiative in the UK to enforce restrictions on the sexualization of children in the media and sexual content in advertising... in addition to a landmark Department of Justice crackdown that has arrested 52 people in an international online child porn ring. In a photo not affiliated with Vogue, Thylane poses topless on a bed with a young male playmate propositioning a pillow fight. And in another, she wears hip-slung jeans and no top with beaded necklaces covering her would-be breasts. Many in the industry have defended the work as art. Others say it crosses a line and promotes child abuse. So which is it? Do fashion magazines have a right to depict children in a sexual manner? Or are these images hindering law enforcements' efforts to stop sexual predators? Leave a comment below and let us know.
