Bella Thorne strikes a little girl Lolita pose for Candie’s. The campaign targets junior girls.

Disney teen queen Bella Thorne pushes the limit on teen sexuality in a sizzling string bikini for fashion brand Candies. But the campaign is raising eyebrows because of her young age and the brand’s target market.

Candie’s clothing and swimwear primarily targets “Juniors.”

That includes girls from as young as seven–years-old up to 24 years old, according to its web site.

Bella just turned 16 and stars in a kids show.

Thorne’s most provocative pose is in a string bikini with a fringe bra-top and Brazilian-cut bottoms that show off a big slice of her behind. The string tying the two bottom pieces together also provides an exposed view of her thigh.

Katie Yoder, a spokeswoman for the Culture and Media Institute, says the conservative lobbying group takes a dim view of the campaign.

“Candie’s isn’t selling clothes, it’s selling sex and teaching young girls to act seductively,” she told Fox News.

“Thorne sends the message that being feminine has nothing to do with being genuine and that confidence means popping your hips and shaking your butt,” she added.

But Fox appears to be talking to itself. Reaction from Thorne’s fans has been generally positive.

Thorne is also old enough to walk in major runaway fashion shows, according to Council of Fashion Designers of America guidelines, which sets the minimum age at 16. If she did that, she’d be wearing even skimpier clothes.

Thorne is already trying to wiggle out of her squeaky clean Disney image. She appeared last month in an adult-looking photo spread in high-concept fashion magazine Bello.

She’s the cover girl for its “Young Hollywood” issue, and she’s dolled up like a sex siren.

The issue also focuses on Avan Jogia, “Awkward’s” Ashley Rickards and Jessica Lu, Arrow’s favorite nerd, Emily Bett Rickards and Portia Doubleday.
