WHOAAAA you say you have no problem with this and they have great modelling potential?!?!?!?
ok im 16 years old (guy) and i find this for a highschool year book really unappropiate... they are just trying really too hard to be 'sexy' and in fact i bet that they are failing miserably and frankly i think they could just take normal pictures....
and a modelling potential yeah forget about high end designers or vogue or bazaar, think of playboy penthouse ralph magazine etc...
i still cannot believe that you think thats ok... if i had a seventeen year old daughter i would certainly not allow them to dress like this for their yearbook...
geez if they allow those girls to publish that into their yearbook, i wonder what they themselves would be thinking ten twenty years down the track...
It isn't surprising given the rise in porn from the internet, the Girls Gone Wild videos and the whole reality TV fad. Girls are sexualized earlier and more than ever. I almost had a cow when my almost 8 year old daughter told me she thought she looked sexy in her 3-D sunglasses yesterday. I asked if she knew what sexy meant and she said no. Clearly, she heard the word somewhere in a positive frame.
Eggggggg-zackly. I had this discussion/rant with my husband yesterday, after seeing this poor deluded child's so-called "year book" photos. Sooooo glad he doesn't have daughters!! My husband says he is afraid to even look at teenaged girls and avoids eye contact at all costs.
That picture is perfect for a modeling portfolio, magazines, etc. But it is NOT acceptable for a high school yearbook. My thoughts are if you cannot wear that outfit to school, you should not be wearing it gracing the pages of a high school yearbook! Yearbooks are traditional that picture would be like trash in a yearbook.
It would also be perfect for Girls Gone Wild, Playboy, Hustler, and porno audition portfolios
We had a school photographer who pretty much told us how to pose, and if ours even allowed that he was a perv. lol. Was this midevil times? I don't remember year book photos as a free for all by just submitting private pics let alone wearung a tube top with a bare mid drift. If that's approved, then what's next? Ripped short shorts with cheeks hanging out.
Who knows, I think she's cute in the first pic (is it the same girl?) and could do well, but not appropriate for high school where there are kids as young as 14 sharing it. Save it for the portfolio or Facebook.
then again my yearbook had the football team in dresses.. and girls in bikinis/spring break..
my school wouldn't have cared if she put it in an ad-purchased page.. but they surely wouldn't have used that as the graduation photo.. had to be holding a diploma and there was a certain dress we all had to wear.. and the guys had to be in suits. and those pics never had to be purchased.
back in my days we had head and shoulder shots. wow
exactly! The only body shot I had was when I got voted best dressed my 11th grade year and that was a random picture I wasnt even told they'd be taking my pic that day it was just random. She looks like she's selling something and it ain't a darn year book
