Is this high school senior picture too sexy to publish in the school yearbook?
A Colorado school district has banned Durango High School senior Sydney Spies’ yearbook photo due to her choice of racy clothing and a seductive pose.
Do you think she went a little … ahem … too far?
If you’ve ever seen senior portraits from back in the day, they were pretty wholesome. In fact, some schools even had their seniors dress all the same.
Times changed and senior photos took a decidedly different turn, with a variety of poses and clothing changes to represent the graduate-to-be’s personality.
Apparently, young Sydney’s personality verges on the side of seductress/stripper — or at least, someone who’s seen her fair share of music videos.
She’s got the bright mini-skirt and crop off-the-shoulder top/bandeau shirt/shawl (what is it, exactly?), but she’s also got the come-hither look down.
Really, she’s one lip bite away from posing on the pages of Maxim.
The school district is up in arms because she’s violating the dress code, but she’s not going down without a fight.
Spies organized a protest and is threatening to sue because
it’s her right to pose as sexy as she’d like she didn’t know that there was a school dress code for senior photos.
Student Brian Jaramillo told the Durango Herald, “We are an award-winning yearbook. We don’t want to diminish the quality with something that can be seen as unprofessional.”
What do you think? Is Sydney Spies’ seductive senior photo inappropriate for the yearbook?
