Thanks to Sassybella for this story: A fifteen year old Australian model named Katie Braatvedt is Vogue Australia's current cover girl, and she's sparked a national outcry. Newspapers declare Katie too young to represent fashion, and Australia's style industry questions what should represent its ideals (and its consumers, most of whom are not fifteen). Katie's cover is beautiful, but her face is wide-eyed and doughy - she really looks like a child. Of course, Gemma's first Prada glory came at fifteen, Kate Moss and Corinne Day began their partnership at that age, and the astounding Tanya D. shot her first YSL ads when she was fourteen - just a year older than Dakota Fanning, whose recent Marc Jacobs ads caused a stir (and some giggles) of their own. Is this just the way it goes?
