Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau: Too Young to Model?

by at . Comments

Sorry for ever questioning your racy spreads, Kendall Jenner. Compare to Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau, you're a senior citizen!

Blondeau is a 10-year girl from France who has made headline this month for her pictorial in that nation's version of Vogue. As you can see below, in pictures first released by Good Morning America, the child isn't simply smiling for the publication; she's striking a rather adult pose:

But Blondeau's doesn't see the big deal. A fashion designer, Veronika Loubry told a French newspaper about the scandal: "The only thing that shocks me about the photo is the necklace that she's wearing, which is worth 3 million Euros."

Should she be more shocked? Is there simply a culture clash here and things are different in Europe? What do you think of Blondeau's spread? Is she too young to model?

I think that it isn't wrong for a 10 year old to model ! but the clothes and makeup and poses make thylane look too old ! So I think in this case that its the wrong thing to do this to a child who is 10

Sorry these poses are too adult for a child period! Playing fun dress up is one thing and done in innocent manner with friends nothing sultry or seductive! This is. Pose that oozes in sexual allure. Remember Brooke Shields in the 80s? Same thing inappropriate. Child modeling should be age appropriate like back-to-school clothes for example.not future playmate of the month!

I know a lot of people see this as innapropriate but she was asked to play dress up by the magazine and take a few pictures. It would be seen as fun to her, like dressing up in mommy's clothes. It's not like they strapped her into the chair and forced her to dress and do her make-up this way. It was just a little fun. Stop taking it all so seriously, it's not sexualising children for christs sake. Suddenly children can't look good anymore, they have to play plain jane? Experimenting like this is, with make-up and clothes, is perfectly normal as you grow up. I know everyone says it's stealing their childhood but it's not, if they enjoy it and have fun with it, it's perfectly normal. It's just a part of letting the develop and be opened up to new things in the world.

Uh..."PearTree," I have NEVER heard of anyone getting "upset" over a LITTLE GIRL being "too covered up." Other than PEDOPHILES.

She isn't too young to model, she should be modeling for Old Navy and Children's Place not VOUGE in such an 'adult' pose.

I'm not sure if that girl nows where she gets in, beacause ALL OF THOSE photos are like adult pictures! I feel sorry for her, but I hope that she's enjoying her time!
