Uh oh. Valentino sent a very young-looking model down the runway with her nipples exposed at Paris Fashion Week, and now fashion fans are outraged! Check it out.
A very youthful-looking model exposed her nipples while wearing a sheer dress on the runway at Valentino’s fashion show in Paris, and people are now outraged. Models in France must be at least 16 years old, but there’s still a lot of people raising their eyebrows at the situation.
The girl in question walked the runway in a “sheer sequin-embellished dress with a cloud motif,” as described by Daily Mail, and there was plenty of skin on display. Carole White, who is the co-founder of London’s Premier Model Management, said designers only “want young, flat-chested” models to wear their clothes. So perhaps that’s why Valentino used younger-looking models with less developed breasts.
Ahead of Paris Fashion Week, Carole told the Evening Standard, “The designers want straight up and down – no boobs.”
Meanwhile, style consultant Nick Ede said nudity is something models should expect. “A model showing off their nipples is something that has never been frowned at in the fashion world. It’s just something that happens and is not seen in any other way than a piece of flesh being exposed. A model is always asked if they are comfortable in their clothes and nowadays with selfies, it’s just not something that people have issues with. I don’t think there should be any ruling on the exposure of a nipple,” he said, according to Daily Mail.
We totally understand what Nick is saying about nudity, but the outrage comes from the fact that this particular model looks super young — quite possibly too young to be exposing her nipples at a fashion show.
