Sadie Frost’s daughter wears controversial dress
At first glance it appears to be just a simple white dress that any 11-year-old might choose to buy.
But on closer inspection admirers would be forgiven for wondering why Sadie Frost allowed her daughter Iris to wear an outfit that declares “drop dead”, “drink poison”, and a plethora of other X-rated messages.
Iris, Frost’s child with Jude Law, sat front row with her mother at the Vivienne Westwood show at London Fashion Week on Sunday.
She teamed her dress with white lace tights and a blazer as she sat photographing pictures of the models on her iPhone.
Ms Frost, 46, tweeted today: “I seem to have upset people & am shocked myself about the dress Iris wore to Vivienne Westwoods show. Iris had been bought it as a present.”
Also bringing their daughter to London Fashion Week was Heston Blumenthal, who posed before the catwalk show with his teenager Jessica.
Other celebrities in attendance were Jo Wood, in a plunging red gown, Gizzi Erskine, Rita Ora and Gabriella Cilmi.
Speaking before the show, Dame Westwood said the rise of disposable fashion now meant people often looked too similar.
She said: “In history people dressed much better than we do today. If you saw Queen Elizabeth it would be amazing, she came from another planet.
“She was so attractive in what she was wearing. People have never looked so ugly as they do today regarding their dress.
“We are so conformist, nobody is thinking. We are all sucking up stuff, we have been trained to be consumers and we are all consuming far too much.
“I’m a fashion designer and people think what do I know but I’m talking about all this disposable cr**.
“So I’m saying buy less, choose well, make it last. Everybody looks like clones and the only people you notice are my age. I don’t notice anybody unless they look great, and every now and again they do, and they are usually 70.”
