Victoria Beckham has been slammed by fans over her 11-year-old daughter’s ‘inappropriate’ outfit.
Victoria and husband David Beckham headed to Paris alongside their youngest daughter, Harper Seven Beckham, for the launch of the fashion designer’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, in which Harper wore a gorgeous black full-length gown.
Taking to Instagram, Victoria, 48, wrote beneath a slew of pictures snapped at the event: “So happy to have so many family and friends at my show this weekend. Thank you for being at #VBSS23 I loved seeing you all.”
Included in the design her child wore in one picture was a deep V-neck with lace detailing, while she styled her hair in adorable plaits.
But despite Harper dressing up in much the same way as other famous faces who appeared at the fashion show, some onlookers couldn’t help but comment on the suitability of the dress.
“Harper looks way to young for that dress,” one commenter wrote, while another echoed: “Why would any parent want an 11-year-old child to wear a dress like that? It's a beautiful dress but it's clearly for a grown woman.”
Someone else asked beneath the pictures: “Are they okay having a kid in an adult dress like that?”
“Let kids be kids. That neckline is so inappropriate,” someone else chimed in.
However, others came to the defence of the famous parents for allowing their child to wear the dress.
Rather than promoting the ‘sexism’ of a child with their backhanded comments, someone onlookers instead realised it was just simply an item of clothing, and it shouldn’t have such negative connotations tied to it.
One person wrote: “Most people wouldn’t notice that. Maybe don’t put your own inappropriate ideas upon another’s child.”
Someone else added: “I totally disagree as my eyes noticed her braids and beautiful lovely smile first. I agree that our society is so anti-women and sexist that our hatred towards women is so deeply rooted that we cannot even treat ourselves and each other with care, love and respect to the point where we cannot even handle a dress!”
Another argued: “I have to disagree - this is a girl wearing a lovely dress. It is not for us to say something is appropriate or inappropriate. After all…what is appropriate?
"People should feel free to wear what they enjoy and feel comfortable in. It is not our call to make.
"If she likes it, let her wear it freely. She shouldn’t have to consider anything other than, ‘does she like it?’”
