Photographer Isabelle Chapuis created this series of mini miss portraits which aims to investigate the hyper-sexualization of young girls. This series is the product of an inquiry proposed by the brand UGG and Paulette magazine. These two companies wanted photographers to present a series of images that reflected today's relationships between mothers and daughters.

The mini miss series features young girls dressed up in runway-ready gowns, over-enhanced makeup and excessively large hair. Isabelle Chapuis photographed these young girls to emphasize the impact of sexualization among youth in today's society.

The images present a unique look at how young girls are being introduced to suggestive styles from a young age. The series, titled 'Féminin Singulier' will be exhibited at the Bettina gallery on September 8th to November 5th, 2015.
