Appropriate age to model lingerie - moved from Barbara Palvin thread

I know this is a website for fans of Barbara, but I'm curious why any of You do not mind that so young model has advertised sexy VS lingerie and had such photo shoot, or pictures too mature in magazines for women, not a teenager - like from Elle France in 2011 ?

She is now 19 years old and only now should begin to work outside the VS Pink and what generally did. In general, models start too early.

Is not appropriate to advertise through teenagers lingerie for women, ie, push-up bras and thongs.

Barbara is still a teenager ( has a very girlish/young face without make-up) and when it appeared her pictures for VS in 2011: a few weeks ago she had a birthday, ended only 18 years old, and already give her a sexy, sensual, mature picture. That is, until recently she was 17 years old :) - when did photo shoot. We must remember some limits even in fashion.

Unfortunately, the media do chaff from the brain young girls and especially men, who admiring teenage or only 20 years old models and celebrities. Through IT finally comes fashion, such as in Japan supposedly, where the ideal has a child’s face with the body of an adult female and skin like baby dolls. Even if this doesn't happen, it's already not too good.

Barbara is very pretty girl, of course, but ... ;/

^ What u stated above are all good points, and could easily start a full on 10 page posting war on what age is "too young" or what age is "appropriate". Fact of the matter is, most of this is predetermined by what is perpetuated and deemed appropriate by every different cultural society on this small world of ours. Personally speaking, I would hope that any individual who does delve into the modeling/fashion industry is more prepared at mind then body. Every model has there starting point, there weakest time, as experience and insight is non existent. Why attaining an education is crucial no matter the field of work that is being attempted. It simply gives an individual better comprehension skills at the giving situations that might come forth and better insight on how to go about it. So 16,17,18,19..20. Age really is a number, mental capacity speaks more for me!

I just turned 20 so I'm close to Barbara's age & I've been wearing VS stuff since i was like 16-17 & i don't think that makes me a bad person? If it does, then sue me... Seriously as long as she's happy with what she does, it's fine. As my lovely Dave said age is just a number & it's completely legal for her to do this if she wants to :idk

And to be honest, Barbara is rocking those VS pictures. If they company & Barbara develop a good relationship I'm sure she can be their next big thing

Honestly, i doubt the average men goes to a Victoria's Secret store & if they do, I'm sure they have no idea of how old Barbara is, it's not like the go "Uuuh look at that 19 years old hottie, Grrrrr!"

Take the girl in my signature as an example, Kate Upton is 20 but she looks way older ... So did Brooklyn Decker when she was 20 or Marisa Miller. They sell stuff for an 'older' target because they look more mature than your average 18-20 years old girl

Yeah, the extra weight gain last year makes her look older. When she first appeared in SI at age 18 she looked like she was only 15 or 16 though because she still had that super baby face. Her face is sunken in a lot more now though and she looks like she in her late 20's or early 30's.

Barbara has such a face that you can see that she is very young (like 17-18 years). You do not have to read about her. This can be seen even in the corrected graphic photo and when she has makeup. post-44547-0-1446155667-09487_thumb.jpg post-44547-0-1446155667-11007_thumb.jpg

Right, Kate Upton looks a little older now. A year ago, still looked like a teenager. But it's horrible that when she was 18, she was known as "the sexy model from SI." As I wrote in the previous two posts, it has negative effects.

In addition, the fashion industry is not the place for a first job for very young people.

19 year olds will never fully mature physically, mentally and sexually. Development of young people should not be being damaged by the media.

after all, thank that You responded me

Personally I don't see any problem with teen models in fashion magazines. If you want a career in modeling, that's where you want to be and runways of course. As long as they are according to their age is fine.

About Victoria secret.. Well, we all wear underwear at any age. :hehe: and VS has different lines for each age and taste.

Now, Barbara began in the Pink line I think at an age appropriate. But Yes I can understand a little what watercolor says just about the extremely sexy lingerie in girls of Barbara's age. Although she looks hot , I can't imagine at that age wearing something like that. But of course as is explicit in my comment, is about individual preferences. Not all women think alike.

I believe Barbara has the appropriate age to model for VS, I think is wrong to be modeling for VS at the age of 13.

I think people prefer to see a 19 year old instead of a 30 year old modeling for VS. I think 17 through 28 are the appropriate ages to model for lingerie.

anyways they are 18 year old woman doing playboy or porn, wish I think that is

more wrong that modeling lingerie, I don't see anything wrong for a 18 year old

model to model for VS lingerie we all woman do wear underwear and bras before

the age of 18.

Seriously? Exactly why is inappropriate for a 30 year old women to model VS? Do you realize that's actually the kind of woman VS is trying to appeal?. Saying that is wrong for a 30 years old women (like Dri, Ale, Miranda, Marisa, etc) to women VS is just as ridiculous as saying that is wrong for Barbara to model for VS.

30 years old women wear underwear too you know ...

I think that 30 years old, the woman is in the high level of her sex appeal and is totally apropriate for do VS, 18 is an age that the girl is being more mature and is an age that a human is totally responsable for their acts só 18 - 38 is a great age for career like a VS model. Barbara is a woman, she have the body and seems to be really mature.

Just wanting to explain that I do not mean that 16-19 year olds can not advertise underwear, but that would advertise cheerful, colorful or modest underwear designed for teens. Not sexy or provocative, with pushup or Herve Leger dresses. Barbara is pretty, has beautiful eyes and is shaped like the body of women, but ... she is still very young and has a teenage mind. Besides, the face is teenagers. It comes to the good of teens and women, and not just my whim.

Why You Maiya think that people over 28 years of age should not advertise underwear?

For example, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, Tyra Banks, Laetitia Casta they look good. Same way, younger Adriana Lima or Miranda Kerr. Who is to encourage 30 olds to buy?

because at 30 you are too old already in the modeling industry, 30 years old needs to be good mother and spend time with their kids.

I didn't see people making a big deal when Adriana was modeling at 18 everybody was happy about it, nobody find it inappropriate but yeah they make a big deal with Barbara modeling at 18. wtf is that all about?
