All Iris wanted to be was respectably fashionable, but she was anything but….
stylite: Who knew one candy-printed dress could cause so much trouble? On Sunday, Sadie Frost (also known as Kate Moss‘ BFF and Jude Law‘s ex-wfe) took her 12-year-old daughter, Iris, to Vivienne Westwood‘s Red Label fall 2012 show. For the occasion, Iris dressed up in a candy-heart printed dress, which she paired with white lace tights and an artfully distressed blazer. And that’s where the trouble started.
Apparently unbeknownst to both Iris and her mother, the little hearts on the dress were filled with not-so-PG phrases like “Blow Me”, “Choke”, “Drink Poison,” and, our personal favorite, “Eat Shit”. Oops
Blow me, choke me, eat shit? Kids, let’s admit it aren’t these the first 17 words uttered from our mouths before we even manage to have our English Earl Grey tea in the morning? Should we really be condemning poor Iris for expressing what just comes naturally out of our souls?
Not wanting to jeopardize her good standing though Iris’ mom tweeted the following come Monday morning:
I seem to have upset people & am shocked myself about the dress Iris wore to Vivienne Westwoods show. Iris had been bought it d as a present
i assumed it was just the sayings the sweets have on them. I’m sorry for any upset it may have caused..Iris is a sweet, innocent girl.
we were enjoying a day out with my mum me @ iris and it was a lovey day.I guess the dress should be hidden till she’s older..#genuinemistake
Shocked? Really? I would have thought par for the course. C’mon kids this is after all London fashion week where the wicked and diabolical have always held supreme. Are we really that squeamish to admit that Iris’s dress really offended our sensibilities, or is it a case that she’s the daughter of a celebrity that she’s being held to absurd standards that most of us would on any ordinary day chuckle at the young girl’s moxie? Or maybe it’s simply a case that certain phrases catch us as a bit off especially on the body of a 12 year old, despite a consenting mother’s permission.
Inappropriate or just
too fashion forward? (ps do you think they have one just like it for gents, I think I’ve taken a fancy to it myself….)
