‘Too much skin!’ On­line at­tacks on Ram­say over his girls’ dresses

Daily Mail - - Front Page - By Sam Creighton Show­busi­ness Re­porter

MANY fa­thers may be driven to de­spair by the dar­ing out­fits their teenage daugh­ters want to wear.

But Gor­don Ram­say, it seems, isn’t one of them.

The celebrity chef at­tracted crit­i­cism for al­low­ing his daugh­ters to dress in re­veal­ing out­fits af­ter post­ing a pic­ture on­line of them at a birth­day meal at one of his Lon­don restau­rants.

The 49- year- old’s fol­low­ers were quick to sug­gest the out­fits may not be ‘age ap­pro­pri­ate’. One said: ‘Wow. My par­ents would never have al­lowed me to dress like that at 16. Way too much skin show­ing!’

The pic­ture showed 14-yearold Matilda, wear­ing a blackand-white crop top with match-

‘Keep their in­no­cence’

ing short skirt and Holly, 16, in a short sparkly dress, while 17year- old Megan wore a black mini skirt.

They posed with Holly’s twin Jack in the pic­ture, which re­ceived 60,000 likes across Face­book and Instagram, and was ac­com­pa­nied by the cap­tion: ‘Very cool 16th birth­day party @hed­don­stk­itchen last night con­grat­u­la­tions Jack & Holly #proud­dad.’

How­ever, al­most im­me­di­ately he started re­ceiv­ing crit­i­cism for al­low­ing his daugh­ters to dress in risque out­fits, with one call­ing for him to keep their ‘in­no­cence a lit­tle longer’. And a Face­book com­ment with 500 likes said: ‘ Those are some short skirts.’

How­ever, oth­ers jumped to his de­fence.

One posted: ‘ Beau­ti­ful kids. I’m sorry you have to deal with peo­ple com­ment­ing about how you should con­trol your daugh­ters dress­ing and ap­par­ently their friends now too.

‘Stupid you can’t even show a pic­ture of your chil­dren with­out get­ting crit­i­cised.’

Ram­say, who is re­port­edly worth more than £100mil­lion, is mar­ried to fel­low cook Tana.

He took the pic­tures at his Hed­don Street Kitchen restau­rant, af­ter a cel­e­bra­tion for Jack and Holly. A rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Ram­say de­clined to com­ment yes­ter­day.
