What do you think? Does young Hollywood dress like hoochies & hood rats?

What do you think? Does young Hollywood dress like hoochies & hood rats?

Facts/Opinions:

BCK  visited  a few online stores that are frequented by teenagers. Some of the stores were: Forever21, JcPenney, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Delia’s, Target, Walmart, to name a few. After browsing these online shops for a couple of hours, a few things were clear:

1. There aren’t much  variety for girls 7-16 looking for clothing for dressy occasions.
2. Most teenagers tend to shop in the “Junior’s” section as opposed to the “Girl’s” section.
3. Junior’s clothing seem to be a bit more on the sexy, mature side.
4. The “dress” from Walmart was the dressiest clothing in the online store.
5. Junior’s clothing is more fashionable and trendy.
6. Girl’s clothing is a bit on the childish side.

So readers, after reading a few of the comments, facts, and opinions, what are your thoughts on the way that these teenagers dress? Do you feel that in a way, they are victims of  fashion in 2009?
