Photos surfaced online over the weekend of girls in China as young as 5 years old walking in a “Victoria’s Secret-style” fashion show.
The girls are seen wearing lingerie, head pieces and costumes—reminiscent of the same outfits (or lack thereof) that the famous Victoria’s Secret angels wear each year.
Here’s a video via Yahoo:
The photos triggered outrage across the globe and echoed similar concerns as those of Kim Kardashian’s new children’s line.
Kardashian posted a photo on Snapchat of a bikini and lace slip dress that was a part of her and husband Kanye West’s new clothing line for kids.
Parents were upset, to say the least:

Modesty starts at an early age.
And these clothing choices, even if in the name of “fashion”, discourage that practice.
