The Movie actress Emily Grace Reaves, along with Noah Cyrus, 9, are shilling a new line of kiddie lingerie, ninemsn, MSN's Australian news site reports. And while it's technically Grace's fashion line (it's called the Emily Grace Collection, after all), whoever's in charge of marketing obviously couldn't resist associating Cyrus — a nine-year-old so far most famous for dressing like a dominatrix, pole-dancing and "Smackin' That" — with their "trendy, sweet, yet edgy" brand. The two kids will be modelling looks from the collection in videos on big sis Miley Cyrus' website.
The collection is produced by something called Ooh! La, La! Couture, and is described by a company press release as including "versatile styles that can be worn with sweet ballerina slippers, funky sneakers or paired with lace stockings and boots for more of a rock and roll look."
Have you not seen enough proof that people will exploit the shit out of children so long as it makes them money or attains them even a modest measure of fame? I remember the dust-up over some provocative photos of Miley that were take by Annie Leibovitz, so you would think that Billy Ray would have learned a lesson. He has apparently not.
Far be it from me to tell a parent how to raise their children, but if you're actively promoting the white-trash couture this fucked-up family is hocking, then you have a screwed up way of parenting.
