London - She was hoping to show off her latest fashion line – and lure a few new customers.
But Victoria Beckham’s pictures of her autumn-winter range prompted an internet backlash over the super-slim models wearing the designs.
Beckham, 45, posted several pictures of her latest collection to her 26.5 million Instagram followers, showing off garments such as a chain-print dress for £1 390 (about R25 000) and red peep-toe boots for £990.
However, many were concerned by the mother-of-four’s choice of models. Comments on the photos suggested they were "scary to look at". Other followers simply demanded the images be removed. "[The model’s] gonna die if she skips another meal’, one wrote. Another said it was ‘sad to see an icon such as you promoting these ill-looking models".
