Sexy clothes for kids?


A report commissioned by the French government has called for a ban on "Mini-Miss" beauty pageants and children’s lingerie in the wake of worldwide controversy over a 2010 Vogue magazine cover featuring a provocative image of a 10-year-old girl.
The parliamentary report entitled “Against hyper-sexualisation, a new fight for equality,” calls for regulations that would ban child-sized adult clothing, including padded bras and high-heeled shoes, and see an end to beauty pageants for under-16s.
“This phenomenon is a real concern for society,” says report author, UMP senator Chantal Jouanno.Her report outlines the psychological effects sexualisation can have on children, especially girls. Damage is irreversible in 80% of cases, and can also lead to disorders such as anorexia, the report says.
Jouanno recommends restricting beauty pageants to girls aged over 16 or 18 and banning advertisers from dressing underage models in adult attire.
She also advocates the reintroduction of uniforms in primary schools.

Should sexy clothing for pre-teens be banned? Would reintroducing school uniforms be a good idea?

  1. I don't know about Vogue but for a country like France which is spelled F-A-S-H-I-O-N F-O-R-W-A-R-D, they simply have the infallible virtue to do what they reckon, after all, the whole world follows their style.
