The most controversial of the set, worn by Trinny Woodhall’s 8 year-old daughter, Lila, is after the jump.
Maybe I have watched fifteen too many episodes of Toddlers & Tiaras and have blunted my radar for the inappropriate.
In comparison to those mincing, pouting little dolls, these kids are babes in the woods.
Last week Jessica Simpson was pulled apart by the world’s media for Tweeting a picture of her daughter (I think she’s about 4 months old, although I must admit I am not an expert,) in a “bikini.”
Sometimes, these kind of pictures are just that: Pictures of children in the kind of clothes our society deems appropriate for immersing children in sun, sand and water.
The interpretation is what’s wrong not the swimsuits.*
I wonder if they hadn’t been from Elizabeth Hurley’s catalogue, anyone would have batted an eyelid.
I suspect not.
* Although, I do agree whole-heartedly with Tracie Morrison, from Jezebel when she said: ” As far as I can tell, after reviewing the designs, the most offensive thing about Elizabeth Hurley’s kiddie swimwear line is that she charges $77 for a bikini for a child!”
