These distorted images are wrong in so many ways. Added to ugly clothing, the images are distorted so that the head and feet are enlarged, Bratz doll style. That’s bad enough, but the faces appear to be about 6 or 7 years old, while the bodies are clearly adult. The hyper-sexualization of children is offensive, or at least, should be.

I’ve never heard of the Steve Madden store before. Clearly, I am not in their target demographic. Even if I were, I would not shop there.
