The Little Mix Ladies Defend Their Sexy X Factor Outfits

After being told they looked like 'prostitutes', Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson clap back...

Little Mix have hit out at criticism of their X Factor outfits – and they’ve done it with TOTAL sass.

Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall debuted their new single Shout Out To My Ex on Sunday night’s results show.

It’s safe to say they looked (and sounded) insane. But unfortunately, not everyone was a fan of their look.

In fact, they ended up being labelled ‘prostitutes’ and a ‘bad influence’. Harsh.

So what were the girls wearing that caused such a reaction? Well, Perrie, 23, and 25-year-old Jesy were both rocking wet-look leotards, while Jade, 23, was in a hot pants and crop top combo and Leigh-Anne, 25, wore a white shirt dress.

They’d accessorised with thigh-high boots, waist belts and chokers. Yep, not exactly a shock to us either…

However, one viewer Tweeted: ‘What’s up with little mix dressing like prostitutes on X factor tonight then,’ while another wrote: ‘Why were little mix almost naked in tonight’s X factor? [sic].’

Er. Maybe because they looked INCREDIBLE, and have the right to wear exactly what they want without being judged.

While appearing on This Morning yesterday, Jade argued: ‘It’s a bit double standards, you always see lads with their tops off and everyone congratulates them and woos them, and we get a bit of thigh out and it’s a bit of an issue!

‘We were really comfortable in our outfits and we loved what we wore, so that’s all that matters.’

YAAASSS. You tell ’em, gal.

TBH, it sounds as though the girls had more important things to worry about than having a bit of skin on show.

Jesy continued: ‘We cannot even describe how scary it is… until you’ve done that whole experience, I can’t describe the feeling that you get.

‘I think it’s because you still feel like you’re being judged. And you feel every time you go on you’ve got to be better than your last performance. It’s just terrifying!

‘We are usually in flat boots because we dance so much and don’t want to risk it… But this time we thought “why not” and we did quite well, didn’t we?’

You definitely did, ladies.
