Mag-Rack: Australia’s Dolly Magazine Receives Criticism for Launching the Next Miranda Kerr


Dolly Magazine recently held a newly revived version of the talent search/contest that churned out international model Miranda Kerr in 1997. Thirteen-year-old Kirsty Thatcher (pictured) emerged the winner out of the several hundreds who entered the contest and is now receiving heavy criticism for being too young to enter the modelling world. The controversial contest was scrapped for ten years due to negative feedback and concern for the welfare of entrants but has seen a revival under new management of the magazine. Thatcher’s winnings include a contract with Chadwicks, a trip to New York City to meet with agents in the fashion industry and being appointed the brand ambassador for Dolly magazine which includes being a role model for her peers, according to the International Business Times.

In my opinion, Thatcher IS indeed too young for a career in modelling, especially when she is going to seek work in New York City. Nothing can mentally prepare a child for something like that, especially if she is going to be dealing with the rejection, image obsession and other high demands commonly associated with the fashion world. Additionally, from what I have seen she does not look her age. One can only imagine what would happen to her if she falls into the wrong hands and what certain fashion people would attempt to get away with. Plus, a modelling contract with Chadwicks? I don’t know about Australia but here in America, Chadwicks markets older women’s apparel not teenagers. I hope her parents intervene with proper guidance and help this child take the right decisions in her career. The world does not need the next Miranda Kerr or the next anybody else for that matter, just be yourself.
