This was the week we saw Karl Lagerfeld without his signature shades. Frightening! This week was also Shark Week. A whole lot of crimes of fashion were committed — and we’re not just talking about Kate and Prince William‘s matching outfits. Plus, a 10-year-old model ignited a firestorm of industry controversy.
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.

OMFG!) is already poised to twirl the modeling industry around her little finger.
