Paris Jackson, daughter of the ‘King of Pop’ Michael Jackson, seems the sort of person you’d like to invite to a dinner party.
She takes conventions and stamps on them with her cowboy boots – the same cowboy boots she really wanted to wear to the Melbourne Cup at Flemington racetrack yesterday, but couldn’t because of sponsorship clashes.
She compromised with ankle boots.
She didn’t shave her legs. (Finally, a red carpet look we can all get behind.)
And she reportedly refused to wear the frock Aussie designer Alex Perry had made for her, because she said she “wasn’t a fan” (Jackson’s representatives deny this.)
Now, perhaps in a bid to smooth things over, or maybe because he just really, really likes her, the 54-year-old fashion designer has posted a picture to Instagram with a caption gushing with praise for Jackson.
Holly, Mia and Jessie on why Paris Jackson was at the Melbourne Cup…
“Loved meeting this beautiful girl today,” Perry wrote, alongside an image of the two of them.
“More beautiful and genuine in person than I could imagine.”
This comes after reports from The Sydney Morning Herald that the 19-year-old was meant to wear a custom dress from Perry, but changed her mind and went with a rust-coloured dress by Australian label Morrison instead.
Jackson attended the Melbourne Cup as a guest of Myer and the Victoria Racing Club.
