December 17, 2006 -- ARE the bare shoulders of a 12-year-old girl too indecent for prime-time? The suits at Disney apparently think so. Studio officials ordered design house Faviana to do a big cover-up when it came to dressing 'tween singing sensation Bianca Ryan for the taping of Disney's "World Christmas Day Parade" special, which airs Dec. 25 on ABC. The cute, $1 million winner of "America's Got Talent" ended up wearing a somewhat censored "Cinderella fantasy gown" on the holiday show. Faviana co-president Omid Moradi told Page Six: "The original mesh sides had to be lined with satin, the lace-up back had to be filled in with a 'modesty panel.' And we had to add tulle cap sleeves to cover Bianca's bare shoulders." One fashion insider snickered, "Even for G-rated Disney, this seems to be a bit much. Why don't they just put her in a burqa? That would definitively solve the issue of too much skin."

Seems a bit silly.

It also seems to me that if someone is enough of a perv that he/she is going to be turned on by any part of a 12-year-old then covering up her shoulders won't make much difference.
