"I see Miley Cyrus openly smoking dope as a much bigger issue than skinny mannequins."
Denise L'Estrange-Corbet, co-founder and CEO of fashion brand WORLD, is under fire for comments she made on New Zealand television this morning.
Discussing recent controversy surrounding a Glassons store mannequin with protruding ribs, L'Estrange-Corbet appeared adamant that the mannequins were not a major issue.
L'Estrange-Corbet also defended the use of "skinny models" and mannequins, as they show off the clothing best.
Her comments regarding the mannequin (below) led to further outcry online:
When asked whether the protruding ribs were necessary, L'Estrange-Corbet conceded it wasn't imperative.
Instead, she preferred to focus on celebrity and the responsibility of parents.
L'Estrange-Corbet's daughter, Pebbles Hooper, has previously been endorsed by Glassons as a "style inspiration."
