Things That Scare Me Very Much: Thing #58345



Yes, it's an ad for Beyonce's House of Dereon and yes, those are 5 year olds.... and if you're looking at the poor child's shoes in disbelief, yes, those are heels on that little girl. Message? Perhaps bad taste needs to be cultivated from a very young age?

Is this child abuse?

oy vey! kids shouldn't wear heels unless they are playing dressup in their mothers, which should be huge on them. Poor girls!

Alya said...

omg! Look at those kids! Scary!

Well, what could we expect of a line designed by Beyonce & Mom. Preppy plaid skirts and white shirt combos?

Miss White said...

Putting children in heels is awful! They need to wear really well fitting shoes because their little bones are still growing. And don't get me started on the clothes...!

Completely agree with Pamcasso, those pictures send a bad message, not only "be tacky" but "grown up... NOW". And little girls should be encouraged to do neither.
