Little Mix criticized for risque outfits at Ariana Grande’s Manchester benefit concert
Little Mix fans are miffed.
The British girl band is facing heat for their revealing outfit choices at Sunday night’s all-star concert to benefit the victims of the attack outside Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert last month.
Many viewers felt their outfits were “distasteful” in light of the reason the concert was called.
Singer Leigh-Anne donned a bra instead of a shirt while her fellow singers, Jesy Nelson and Jade Thirlwall, chose leotards with thigh-high boots. Perrie Edwards was slightly more covered up with a fringe piece she wore over her leotard.

@LittleMix totally no need for those outfits tonight. This was not a night about sexy outfits, take example from Ariana!

However, other fans came to the group’s defense:
everyone tearing little mix down for their outfits, thought the whole point was being empowered free in the face of terror? #LittleMix
