Bella Thorne in Ted Baker London

Posted on August 08, 2012

Oh, man. These baby starlets are going to be the death of us.

Bella Thorne attends the premiere of ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’ in Los Angeles in a Ted Baker London dress paired with Miu Miu heels.

Look: she’s 14, and that’s right at the cutoff of critiquing age. We’ve offered some unasked-for advice to Chloe Moretz and Hailee Steinfeld, so it’s not completely out of bounds, but there’s only so far we’ll go in ragging on a little girl’s clothes.

We’ll just say this: she is very pretty and, much like Katherine McNamara yesterday, she’s rushing headlong into grownup dressing way too soon. It’s a very cute dress and pair of shoes, but it doesn’t strike us as all that youthful. Compare this to Kiernan Shipka’s latest, which manages to be both youthful and chic at the same time, which means it can actually be worn by ladies decades older than her without it being too old for Kiernan to wear it. It’s a balancing act.

This is why we could never be gay daddies. If our little girl came out of her bedroom dressed like this, we wouldn’t have the traditionally negative daddy response, which would more than likely be “ABSOLUTELY NOT!” Ours would be more along the lines of “Sweetie, a pencil skirt, ten pounds of hair, and Barbra nails? We’re too young to have a 35-year-old daughter.”
