Thylane Loubry Blondeau

The fashion industry has gone crazy about a 10-year old, angelic-looking Lolita from France. Her name is Thylane Loubry Blondeau.
Do you find those photos creepy or beautiful?

To me, there appears nothing "angelic" about her. The name of the magazine is "Jezebel" and that's just how they have dressed her up to be.

I see her having a teenage pregnancy, substance-abuse problem, or a Britney Spears meltdown by the time she's 15.

Sadly, I think she well may go the same way, unless she is very carefully monitored and mentored by her parents or guardians.

She is a very pretty little girl and I think that portraying her in this sort of light is both inappropriate and exploitative.

Re: Thylane Loubry Blondeau

I am not sure of what to think.

But I am wondering how it is legal to take pictures of a little girl in those positions and outfits?

People get arrested to have those kind of pictures of children. Showing little girls in provocative positions and in adult clothing is very very disturbing and borderline pervert.

The point of the Jezebel article was to show that portraying this child was creepy and exploitive. And, that while this child was clearly depicted as a child, albeit in a creepy manner, young women just a few years older are depicted as adults. But yes, I think it's creepy too, and inappropriate. I suppose it's legal where it's done.. I guess that was France.
