Little Mix has come under fire for their “provocative” outfits at the One Love Manchester concert on Sunday. The girl group’s coordinating stage looks became the subject of a debate on Twitter during their performance, with some users even calling their clothing “disrespectful.”

The foursome wore monochrome, leather ensembles, which didn’t cover a whole lot of flesh and were called out as inappropriate for the young audience watching in the crowd and at home.



The phrase “dressed like strippers” was also Tweeted by a number of concert watchers – the same wording used to criticise Amanda Holden’s Britain’s Got Talent semi-final outfit last week.


But not everyone was offended by the group’s wardrobe choice and a number of fans quickly came to their defense.

Social media users revealed that Little Mix had cancelled their appearance at the Britain’s Got Talent final in order to perform at One Love Manchester — and wore the same outfits they were set to wear on the ITV talent contest.



And some pointed out that women should have the freedom to wear whatever the hell they want.


This isn’t the first time Little Mix has been slammed for their outfits. Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jade Thirlwall were called “prostitutes” by some X Factor viewers after a performance in October last year.

Former member of the Spice Girls Mel C also said she thought Little Mix were too sexualized: “They are all gorgeous and great singers. But they weren’t sexy and it’s got more and more that way. I love them – but I just say, ‘Stay you’,” she told Sunday People. “All young women want to look sexy and hot so I understand it’s hard. But I think it’s such a shame.”
