Victoria Beckham has been called out over the dress her daughter Harper wore to celebrate her 12th birthday.

The mum has often been targeted by trolls over her parenting choices, especially when it comes to Harper. After posting photos from Harper’s Prada party, Victoria Beckham was slated over the inappropriate dress she let her daughter wear.

Harper wore a silk lilac slip dress for her 12th birthday celebrations. The 12-year-old looked as happy as ever as she celebrated her big day with her parents and brothers, but some of Victoria’s followers were furious over her outfit choice.

One wrote: “A lingerie-style dress for a 12yo girl isn’t appropriate at all. She’s super cute, her angel face doesn’t go well with that type of dress.”

“I can’t imagine letting a 12-year-old wear a slip. That is not age appropriate as everyone is saying. People have lost the ability to actually say what they’re really thinking, in case it offends the poster.”

“How can her dad let her out like that?” another said.

The comment section was flooded with criticism, but many fans praised Victoria and David.

“So pretty and getting tall. Beautiful mum and daughter,” another said.

“Fashion is a method of self-expression and art. Why judge others?” another wrote.

“The comments on here, from adults, about a young beautiful girl enjoying her birthday are absolutely disgusting. you should be ashamed,” one shared.

“Pretty sure the Olsen twins were wearing this long before. Y’all are sexualizing a really innocent silky dress… weird.”
