Child Models Page 1
This could be the beginning of a breakthrough for models under 18 working in New York state. This morning, we got a triumphant dispatch from the Model Alliance, the advocacy organization founded by model and activist Sara Ziff, announcing that state Senators have agreed to propose legislation that will combat exploitation and unfair treatment of child models. About time, right?
Cindy Crawford‘s daughter’s stint as a model for Young Versace will be her last — for now. Mama Crawford says her little girl, Kaia Gerber, is going to have to wait until she’s older if she wants to actually do work as a model.
For all the controversy surrounding some child models, it gives us great pleasure to dote on the latest pint-sized star. His name is Ryan, and he has Down syndrome.
Well, we definitely saw this coming. Less than a week after model Thylane Loubry Blondeau took the fashion blogosphere by storm and exactly one day after she was deemed “too sexy” by Good Morning America, the 10-year-old’s mother has spoken out against the critics.
It’s official: 10-year-old model Thylane Blondeau has made it stateside. The genetically blessed child was the subject of a segment on this morning’s “Good Morning America” which asked the somewhat obvious question, “How young is too young?” While we asked the same thing ourselves, there are a few things GMA seems to be confused about — including the age of the average model you see every single day in magazines.
If you’re having grown-person self-esteem issues today, this is not the post you want to be reading.

OMFG!) is already poised to twirl the modeling industry around her little finger.
Happy Monday! This is Fatima Ptacek. She is 9 years old and she’s been making $250,000 a year since she was 5. How is your paycheck treating you? Did you know that one time she was on Sesame Street and she met Michelle Obama? Also, she’s been on Saturday Night Live in a pretty funny if totally stomach-turning skit starring Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis. It was about Chewable Pampers.
