Well, this is confusing.
Fashion designer Collette Dinnigan has come under fire after criticising the weight of young Australian women. She argues that both (a) showing off their stomachs with midriff tops is unacceptable, and (b) covering up with kaftans should not be condoned.
48-year-old Dinnigan criticised overweight girls with “big burger bellies”, which she described as “unattractive”. In an interview with fashion writer Anooska Tucker-Evans for The Courier-Mail, Dinnigan said:
“I see so many girls with those cut-off short shorts and midriff tops and their big bellies hanging out the top of them and I’m just thinking, `Why on earth would you think this looks attractive?’
