Sydney Spies Photo: Too Hot For High School Yearbook!

by at . Comments

Sydney Spies, a high school senior from Durango, Colo., was denied inclusion in her class' yearbook after its editors rejected both of the photos she submitted.

Their justification for that? The pics were just too racy!

The 18-year-old wore a short yellow skirt, showing off her stomach in one of the shots. Not exactly Courtney Stodden levels, but not standard yearbook fare.

Still, Spies' story captured the attention of news outlets everywhere. "I really honestly think that it describes who I am," Spies explained to Today's Matt Lauer.

"I'm an outgoing person and I really do think it's artistic. Like I said, people have their sports pictures, pictures with their horses or guitars. That's my interest."

Spies said she was surprised her peers rejected the photos, as she said they agreed to it in the first place by a 4-1 vote before the principal urged them not to.

"The next day their whole decision changed completely against me,” said Spies, who was offered an advertising spot in the book - for a standard $300 fee.

She bristled at that consolation: "If it's going to be in the yearbook anyway, why should I not be able to have it as my senior picture? I don't understand."

Spies says she may take the school to court over this.

"I don't know if i want to go that far with it," she said. "But it's illegal for the administration to get involved. So that's why we have considered that option."

This is just silly. It's a high school girl who's been made to believe the less clothes you wear the prettier or "sexier" you are. Shame on that mother for even allowing her to even take that picture. I really hope that picture stays out of that yearbook, it should not even be allowed in an add. Paying $300 does not make it any less provocative.

there are MANY different ways to express yourself then wearing clothes that show too much skin. now she is a very beautiful young lady and i understand that maybe to her this is right, but as a individual i do beleive she could and still can show her beauty in a more covered up picture. now with that being said, it says within the dress code handbook that she is required to wear a full covered top, no tank tops, just a shirt that covers her enitre front half. if this is not adressed then the commitee iteself will have to put within legal actions regarding this incident. why this has come on the news, no idea, but something as silly as this shouldnt be. if she does decide to file a lawsuit she will most likely not win. hopefully in the future she will understand the real reason is to why she cant have this in the yearbook.

I think there are alot of haters out there. Shes hot. She has a great body, pretty hair , gorgoues face. She looks like a model. I think its unfair of all the hate she is getting and the skirt is not short at all. The top might be a little too much but hey shes got a great body why not show it of.

Your interest is looking like the next girl to be working in a strip club? Well then I can't imagine WHY a school would ever turn down such a "classy" picture. Fool.
