Kaia Gerber is taking this modeling gig to the next level, as Cindy Crawford 's gorgeous daughter has graced the pages of Teen Vogue with her presence! The young beauty also participated in a major Young Versace campaign when she was only 10 years old! In an interview with the magazine , Kaia admits that her mom often gives her advice, as she was once the most famous supermodel in the world!

A little research shows that little Blondeau has been at this for a while, frequently photographed for editorials Fashionista has several here , the cover of Vogue Enfants see pic below and even walking in Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring runway show as a child extra. Reactions to the recent, jarringly-adult editorial have ranged from perplexed to utterly appalled, with most questioning the appropriateness of a child consistently photographed like an adult and sexualized in the process.

The natural reaction is overreaction. Some parents plunge into a discourse on the risks of inviting sexual attention, scaring the child. Others try to bury the matter by ordering the child never to talk or act like that again—inadvertently teaching her that any topic involving the word sex is taboo and should never be discussed with parents. There are plenty of sexualized images for children to imitate. Does it mean dressing so others will like you?
