A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that SUDDENLY DARLING is a girls' fashion and beauty site that encourages modesty and creativity. Started by a Christian teen girl named Katelyn Rose, the site carries some big-name store advertisers and a rack full of teen or early-20s celebrities who promote modesty, too.
Is it any good?
SUDDENLY DARLING is a colorful, hip beauty and style site intended for girls who love fashion but want to learn how to look good while dressing on the tame side of the fashion equation. Through photos, articles, discussion boards, interviews with celebrities and product ads and descriptions, tween and teen girls can learn that fashion and modesty don't need to clash. There's a subtle Christian bent to the message, but overall any girl who is into fashion and is looking for support to dress her age could find a lot of helpful information and fun here.
Online interaction: Message boards appear to stay close to topic and tone of site. Girls can and do include photos of themselves next to their posts.
