How Young is Too Young for Modeling?
How Young is Too Young for Modeling?

How young is too young for girls to work as models? Recently, a 14-year-old opened Christian Dior show in Paris, renewing an ongoing debate on the age of models.

Many children have dreamed of growing up and living the glamorous life of a fashion model.

Sofia Mechetner, 14, is living that dream, and enjoying it, despite some who say she is too young.

'I feel ready and I am not alone, I am being looked after, closely. They are treating me really nicely here. Everything I ask for is being taken care of, they help me. So the fact that I am 14 years old is not really an issue,' she said.

It's not an issue for her manager, Rotem Gur, either.

'Before she started with Dior she was cleaning houses with her mother so if she is not too young to clean houses, I don't think she is too young to walk on a show,' said Gur.

But others - like Caroline Rush with the British Fashion Council - are not so sure.

"All of the designers that are contracted to London Fashion Week, the models must be 16 or over. We think that's really important,' said Rush.

Carlo Capasa of Italy's National Chamber of Fashion said Italian models must also be no younger than 16,

'Yes, there are rules. In Italy we don't use models that are under 16. (They are) too young,' said Capasa.

Models themselves have their own take on how young is too young.

'I think you should start modeling at 18. I mean, that is the age I started up," said model Neelam Gill.

'You do get scrutinized, you do get disappointment and that's very hard to take when you are 14 or 16. Eighteen, you are a little bit more experienced but even at 18 ... I was probably ready by 21, 22,' said David Gandy, a male model.

But Karl Lagerfeld, of the Chanel Fashion House, said the public wants to see young models.

'They can identify even if it's not the same age group. That's the girls of the moment, fashion is about the moment. I'm an opportunist, a fashion opportunist, but there's nothing bad about that because that's our business,' said Lagerfeld.

It remains to be seen if the business is going to continue to allow children to be the new face of fashion.

多少岁的女孩当模特太年轻了?最近,时装品牌克里斯汀·迪奥(Christian Dior)在巴黎的时装秀由一名14岁的女孩开场。这位小美女重新引发了持续不断地对模特年龄的争论。

有很多孩子幻想过长大后,过上时装模特那种绚丽多彩的生活。14岁的索菲亚·穆彻特纳尔(Sofia Mecheter)就过着这种别人梦寐以求的生活,而且她很享受,尽管有些人说她还太年轻。

她说:"我觉得我准备好了,我也不是独自一个人,有人贴身照顾我。在这里,他们都对我非常好。我要求的所有东西都有被顾及到,他们会帮助我。所以我14岁的事实并不是个问题。"

对她的经纪人罗特姆·古尔来说,这也不是什么问题。

她说:"在她签约迪奥之前,她和妈妈一起打扫房子。所以,如果她的年龄对于打扫房屋没问题,那我就不认为她年纪太小不能走秀。"

其他人则不这么肯定,比如英国时装协会(British Fashion Council)的负责人卡罗琳·拉什(Caroline Rush)。

她说:"所有与伦敦时装周签约的设计师,都必须使用16岁及以上的模特。我们认为这非常重要。"

意大利国家时装商会(National Chambers of Fashion)的卡洛·卡帕萨说:

"对,是有规定的。在意大利,我们不使用16岁以下的模特。他们年纪太小了。"

模特们对于什么年纪是太年轻有他们自己的想法。

模特尼拉姆·吉尔说:"我认为你应该在18岁的时候开始做模特。我的意思是,我就是那时候开始的。"

男模大卫·甘迪说:"你确实会受到众目睽睽地审视,会有失望的时刻,那对于14或16岁的人来说很难接受。18岁的话,你经验会稍微多些,但即使是18岁也不一定。我可能是在21、22岁的时候准备好的吧。"

不过,香奈儿时装(Chanel Fashion House)的创意总监卡尔·拉格斐(Karl Lagerfeld)说,公众想要看到年轻的模特,比如约翰尼·德普(Johnny Depp)16岁的女儿莉莉-萝丝·德普(Lily-Rose Depp)。

拉格斐说:"即使是年龄不同,他们也能够鉴别出来。那些就是当下这一时刻的女孩们,时尚就是关乎瞬间。我是一个机会主义者,一个时尚机会主义者,但是这没什么不好的,因为这就是我们的生意。"

时尚产业是否会继续允许未成年人成为新的时尚面孔,这个问题还有待回答。
