AceShowbiz - Victoria Beckham (Victoria Adams) is facing intense criticism on social media. The fashion designer has been urged to take down her new VB Body campaign due to "underage"-looking model.
On Wednesday, August 10, the wife of David Beckham showed off new pieces in her VB body capsule collection. The 48-year-old first uploaded a photo of Morgan Porter, who is signed to Storm Models and has shot campaigns for Louis Vuitton and walked the catwalk for the former Spice Girls member and German fashion designer Jil Sander, donning a cardigan. She put her right arm on top of her head while staring at the camera.
"Meticulously designed and new to the VB Body capsule collection, the cropped cardigan hugs the body whilst accentuating the waist," Victoria captioned the post. "Available in black and white, it's the perfect layering piece."
In a separate post, Victoria shared a black-and-white snapshot of Morgan, clad in a classic mini-dress, fiercely posing while sitting on a chair. "Form-fitting and flattering, scallop detailing elevates a classic mini-dress silhouette. Complete with double straps that crossover at the back and a scalloped hem," the caption read.
But the cardigan and the mini-dress itself were lost on fashion fans, who were more concerned about the appearance and age of the model. With many people agreeing she looked "too young," many were quick to slam Victoria for choosing her to front the campaign.
One person wrote, "This model looks underage. It's not a good look for this brand." A separate Instagram user echoed the sentiment, "This image isn't right! If she isn't a child she is very child like which obviously is what you wanted. Just wrong!"
"Model is way too young. Totally inappropriate," another chimed in. Others urged Victoria to take down the photos, with one commenting, "This is bad. This should be taken down immediately. How could you think this was ok?" and a separate person adding, "So shocking! This poor girl looks so young ... the photos should be removed."
This is not the first time Victoria has come under fire for her choice of models. In 2019, people criticized the mother-of-four and her brand for using a "skeletal" model who was "ill-looking." She was also accused of promoting an unhealthy body image.
One horrified fan wrote, " #feedthemodel she's gonna die if she skips another meal." Another lamented, "Pictures like this are what contribute to eating disorders, totally irresponsible and another example of profit over conscience." A third chimed in, "Scary to look at. Even more scary to think how ill she must be."
