She reminds one of a sultry Brigitte Bardot in her heyday – huge blue eyes glancing over a bare shoulder, pouting lips that are both innocent and seductive and wild hair.

But the latest girl to hit the fashion world is just 10.

Thylane Blondeau of France has caused an outcry with sexy fashion photographs showing her dressed as an adult woman. She even appears topless in some of the pictures.

The young model is so popular she is to appear in leading international fashion glossy Vogue later this year.

The January French edition of Vogue shows the girl sprawling on leopard-print sheets wearing gold stilettos and a dress with a plunging neckline.

The photographs have sparked outrage and senior members of parliament in Britain are up in arms.

The pictures of young Thylane are shocking and confuse people’s perceptions of beauty, says the UK branch of international Christian charity organisation Mothers’ Union, which promotes family values.

British prime minister David Cameron supported the statement and Labour Party MP Helen Goodman has said the publication of the pictures is “disgraceful and totally irresponsible”.

“The sexualisation of children is one of the most pernicious ills of our era. They should not have done this. Thylane’s modelling agency clearly doesn’t know if it’s representing a child or an adult,” Goodman said.
