I realize that Cindy Crawford’s daughter is modeling Versace’s “children’s line,”
but no child I know dresses like that. She’s being sexualized in a short skirt, and furthermore, I find it deplorable that the fashion industry uses child models because anorexia is much more easily averted when using prepubescent kids. Since they haven’t reached maturity, they don’t have to starve themselves yet — right? When I was ten years old, I played in a cardboard box that I insisted was a rocket ship. This is just sad.
You might recall a time in history when models didn’t look like little boys. Remember Cindy Crawford, and how she actually had those things that make up a woman — breasts and ass? And just when you thought it could not get worse, we’ve officially transitioned to a pre-pubescent stage. I understand that Kendall Jenner is of the Kardashian Posse and is therefore in demand, but that’s no excuse. She’s just too young — and it’s disturbing. I suppose this is the fashion industry’s alternative to anorexia. Why bother with hungry models when you can use children that haven’t full developed yet. It’s genius!
When Annie Leibovitz photographed Demi Moore’s naked and pregnant body
for the cover of the 1991 Vanity Fair magazine, it was considered an artistic masterpiece. It was a feminist statement, which told women everywhere that they could be both beautiful and pregnant at the same time. Plus, it was original. Annie Leibovitz is a fantastic photographer because of her unique creative vision. Since that shot, photographers and celebrities everywhere have copied the idea, and every woman under the sun poses naked while pregnant. It’s not that I don’t love a naked, pregnant body –it’s that I don’t love copycats, and it’s time to retire the idea. To see what I mean, click the links below.
