This spring, designers really focused in on youth obsession with Lolita-inspired designs. Featured in these childlike spreads were bows, baby-doll dresses, ruffles, pigtails, red lips and plastic shades.

From cute fun-loving fashion to innocent teen editorials, the nymphet look has been featured in just about every magazine spread.

Implications - There is something innately controversial about fashion and photography that channels youth and innocence, but it is undoubtedly that controversy which can make a design so captivating and interesting. These childlike spreads walk a dangerous line by cultivating the forbidden fruit of the young nymphet and as a result, risk the possibility of straying too far into the realm of the inappropriate. Without question, however, their daring subject matter is sure to draw the attention of a large number of people. Stats for 24 Childlike Spreads Trending: Older & Average
