According to the blog The Fash Pack, nine-month-old Harper Beckham, daughter of Victoria and David, has already received her first offer of a modelling contract from personalised baby gift company My1stYears.com.
In a slightly weird and frankly disturbing open letter to Harper herself, Emily Sandford from the website writes;
‘Both your parents are fashion icons, and we can see no reason why you shouldn’t start your own career in the fashion industry even at your young age. From what we have seen of you since your first public appearance less than a year ago, we know you have implacable style and taste. You were therefore the immediate first choice for our campaign.’ The letter continues: ‘Due to child labour laws we cannot negotiate a contract or salary directly with you, that is why your Mummy and Daddy have been copied in on this letter. We are happy to speak with them about your fee; however, we are prepared to pay you a significant amount to be the face of our new range.’
Do you think 9 months old is too young to be put under the fashion industry spotlight?
