Famous singer, designer and mother of many children Victoria Beckham received her portion of applause and enthusiastic feedback about her latest collection, presented at the fashion week in New York, but soon after the British press and social media began to write unflattering reviews, accusing Victoria of using too thin and young models.
“The models she uses look painfully thin, and this is a bad example for young girls,” said Sam Smeters, executive director of The Fawcett Society, a British women's rights group.
“Beckham may be a smart beauty and a good mother, but she has problems with model expression and their bodies. It is not fun to be pathetic, at least it should not be. Don't be fun and be so skinny that bones stick out, ”writes Pierce Morgan.
Meanwhile, the American media are quite pleased with the show of Victoria, and even stood up for her defense: “Stop condemning the body of Beckham and her models.This criticism speaks of our concern about appearance. In addition, how can you criticize the thinness of Victoria herself, who was such before the birth of four children? "
Victoria herself did not comment on this kind of criticism, but said she was pleased with the show: “I want women to feel strong and love the best version of themselves. I want them to look beautiful, feel sexy and confident. I am delighted when people say: "I feel great in your clothes."
In the meantime, the use of plus size models is becoming increasingly popular in the fashion world.
