JonBenet Ramsey was a model that competed in fashion shows. She was a little girl, age-wise, but full grown woman in the way she dressed. And there’s just something disturbing about the whole pre-teen fashion business — especially when you consider all the pedaphiles out there enjoying these shows for all the wrong reasons. Although JonBenet’s parents have long been suspected of killing their own child, a strange man named John Karr confessed to her murder, only to be found not to be the real killer.
Yet, all the publicity over the Ramsey killing has not stopped the flow of teen model photos crowding the internet.
The movie Little Miss Sunshine addressed this whole child fashion model busness with Abigail Breslin’ funny characterization of a wannabe fashion star. But the whole thing gives many people the creeps.

Clearly, as long as there a moms that want to dress their little girls up like grown up models, and little girls who agree to dress this way, the oftentimes troubling world of child fashion shows will continue. But as JonBenet Ramsey reminds us — as do some of these pictures — many times this practice goes a little too far.
