French Vogue's racy child models: Sick or Slick?

After my investigation and obsession with the murder of child beauty queen I looked into how children are used in advertising today. 
My jaw just about dropped when I stumbled upon Paris Vogue’s fashion spread featuring young girls decked out in jewels, couture, and even Louboutins.  Though the models are around nursery school age, they are positioned in traditional high-fashion poses, languishing on beds and tiger-skin rugs and, made up in daring red lipstick and heavy eye shadow.
Vogue is no stranger to controversial fashion spreads that are as much political statements as they are art. But we’re curious: What do you think of French Vogue’s December issue? High fashion or lowbrow?
