The December issue of French Vogue, edited by Tom Ford, features an extensive spread of child models presented more or less like whores. The girl above is 6. Lemme spell that for you: s-i-x! I'm a big Tom Ford fan. Or, well, was. Artistic freedom and everything, and no, this shouldn't be made illegal—but I believe this is Totally Not Cool. More at NY Mag, Stylelist, and Gawker has scans of the whole photo spread.
