Victoria Beckham is getting heat once again for the weight of the models she’s hiring for her fashion line.
In case you missed it, the advertisement for Beckham’s Spring ’18 eyewear campaign includes a 29-year-old Lithuanian model named Giedre Dukauskaite, who is featured on the former Spice Girls singer’s Twitter promoting the line.
The 43-year-old shared last week:
Back to work! Start the year with new frames from the Spring Summer 2018 #VBEyewear collection inspired by 1970s retro classics and updated for a feathery-light, fresh and modern look. Available at https://t.co/z8jKj9nMGH and #VBDoverSt. #VBSS18 pic.twitter.com/SDq0onL2EJ

It didn’t take long before people started pointing out they were concerned over the thinness of the model, taking to social media over the weekend to question Victoria’s intentions.
Ch-ch-check out the reactions (below)!!
This model may be naturally slim and she is beautiful! However using models that are this thin creates an unrealistic goal for most girls and is highly irresponsible!

Apart from looking absolutely ridiculous this is totally irresponsible. Images like this should be banned. We should be so past using models like this. But hey these sociopathic millionaires live in La La land.

This kind of advertising is extremely irresponsible and is an insult to women everywhere. Being thin and emaciated should not be anyone├óΓé¼Γäós objective. It is degrading, insulting and extremely dangerous. #respectyourbody

My 7 year old daughter thinks she├óΓé¼Γäós “fat” & that being skinny is attractive. She is not fat, not overweight and is gymnastics obsessed. I hope Harper is taught that it├óΓé¼Γäós what├óΓé¼Γäós inside that matters not how you look? How are girls ever going to feel normal with this sort of advert?

That├óΓé¼Γäós ridiculous. This model is skeletal. What are you trying to prove? You are on another planet love

Please remove this picture. I don’t want my young nieces seeing this, and thinking it’s how they should look. Unhealthily skinny, and gaunt. You need to be more aware of what you are posting, and the impact it has on your young and impressionable audience.
