Skins  Elle magazine New York City, Feb 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Some parents and the Television Council in the United States have raised concerns after some of the underage casts of “Skins” appeared in provocative pictures in the March edition of the Elle Magazine.

The pictures appeared in a feature of the fashion magazine called “After-School Special.” Most people were concerned after six of the underage stars were shown in lingerie and underwear. That picture though is just half of the whole story. There was another picture that showed all the cast members wearing full clothing. The magazine’s editors pointed out the difference between the casts dressed in the underwear and those dressed in regular dress.

The featured stars were Eleanor Zichy, James Newman, Rachel Thevenard, Britne Oldford, Camille Cresencia-Mills and Sofia Black D’Elia.

The Parents Television Council had earlier raised concerns that the MTV series may have violated the child pornography laws in the United States. However when the new pictures were published, the PTC issued a statement.

The Director of Communications and Public Education said that, “We had concerns about the GQ photo shoot of ‘Glee,’ even though was over the age of 19, because they were presenting themselves as high schoolers.”

Elle Magazine defended their decision to publish the images. They said though most of the casts were aged just between 15 years old to 19 years old, they were just interested in the fashion aspect of the shoot rather than any other thing.
