I guess this model's age to be around 12, judging by the length of her forearms and the soft, smooth "baby" quality of her hands and face.
Maybe she's 13 or 14, or even a really young-looking 16. When I first saw this image in a TigerDirect email blast, I was slightly weirded out by this young (looking) model's luxuriously-styled hair, curled and mascaraed eyelashes, and the incredibly, unnecessarily-airbrushed face of an adult model, her chin resting on one baby hand with a self-assured half-smile.
I tried to Pin this to share it in my "Slightly Disturbing" file, but TigerDirect's available thumbnail image cut off her head. (I made my own screen captures.) I thought it a little strange that their thumbnail contained no head. Then again, all the relevant sale information is on the lower half of the ad, so i guess it's not too odd.
I see how they played it safe, dressing her in a fully-buttoned blue Oxford shirt, slightly roughing up her hair... And then it's a 12-year-old wearing all the same attitude, eye-makeup, and airbrushing of an 18-year-old.
I wonder what the stylist and art director were thinking.
"A girl wearing her new school uniform."
The makeup artist just went a little out-of-control with the mascara, and then the art department intern went overboard on the airbrushing...
"A pageant princess on her first day of private middle school."
It must be one of those two, surely.
Or is it actually an 18-year-old model who's been airbrushed into looking like a child??? So many questions!
