The first episode of the new series of Made In Chelsea aired last night. But don’t think Binky Felstead was avidly watching at home – nope, she was out partying with fellow MIC lady Rosie Fortescue! And looking bloomin’ marvellous in the process.
The 24-year-old reality TV star got dressed up to the nines for the Haagen-Dazs Little Gardens X Liberty launch party in London, stepping out in a gorgeous Hope And Ivy floral maxi dress with a plunging neckline and fluted sleeves.
Binky accessorised with strappy nude heels and a bright blue clutch bag, wearing her hair loose and down in her signature high volume waves.
Rosie opted for a slightly edgier look in a printed Matthew Williamson dress layered with a dark red biker jacket, a choker and a seriously gorgeous pair of bright pink heels. LOVE.
But when Binks Instagrammed a shot of her outfit from inside the event, it sparked a pretty crazy debate about her body.
In the shot, Binky is seen posing with a tub of ice-cream along with the caption: ‘So excited to be celebrating the launch of @HaagenDazsUK floral ice creams in @LibertyLondon! #floralornothing only here for a fortnight, so don’t miss your chance to taste them!’
Immediately, a flurry of comments about Binky’s slim figure poured in, with many claiming that the star looked ‘too skinny’.
‘Wow she’s gone so small’, one user commented. ‘Too skinny. Eat more ice cream’, another blasted.
It’s no secret that the brunette beauty’s stepped up her fitness game in a big way over the past six months, but slamming the way someone’s body looks in this way is never okay. Also, we can’t help but feel that the camera angle had a big part to play in the way Binky’s body appeared…
And many of her fans quickly jumped to her defence, with one slamming the skinny-shamers.
‘People can be so rude saying she’s too skinny! Calling someone too skinny is JUST as bad as saying someone’s too fat! Way to make someone feel s***about themselves’, they wrote. Amen to that.
Binky looks happy, healthy and confident, and in our books, that’s all that matters.
