Sadie Frost and her 12-year-old daughter, Iris, had a fun mother-daughter day out in London, attending Tuesday's Vivienne Westwood runway show. But Frost, BFF to Kate Moss and ex-wife to Jude Law, ended the day by apologizing fans who were scandalized by Iris' outfit choice.
Iris sat front row with her mum, smiling at her first-ever fashion show, wearing what seemed to be an innocent, candy heart-printed dress. But as the Telegraph pointed out, the little hearts on the frock were filled with phrases such as "Blow Me," "Drink Poison," "Eat Shit" and "Choke."
While at the show, Sadie focused on the fashion, telling reporters about Iris, "She's 12 and got very, very into fashion... and I think she's very excited to be here as well." But she addressed critics later in the evening, tweeting:
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
But only some fans and followers needed mollifying. Plenty responded with support, tweeting "complete storm in a teacup. I feel for you. x" and "oh for gods sake, kids like what they like! Sick of this country being so "P.C"! She's a child, let her have some imagination!!"
