Ariana Grande's star-studded One Love Manchester benefit concert, which sent the fans into a frenzy, featured famous names including Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Robbie Williams, Justin Bieber, Little Mix, and David Beckham. While the concert was the centre of the attention yesterday night, the all-girl band Little Mix has drawn flak for their revealing outfits at the special event.
Little Mix members Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall were dressed in black and white colour coordinated outfits while giving an eyeful to the audience.
While Leigh-Anne Pinnock sported a tiny bra, Jesy Nelson and Jade Thirlwall opted for thigh-grazing leotards. Perrie Edwards preserved her modesty in a frilly outfit but the star shared an intimate snap of her from the backstage ahead of the gig.
The X Factor winners performed their hit single 'Wings' at the concert. Jesy Nelson addressed the crowd saying: "We are so, so happy to be a part of this incredible day, thank you. We wrote this song in the hopes it would empower people to stand together and not let anything bring them down."
Meanwhile, Twitterati and BBC viewers slammed the band members for wearing inappropriate outfits for an occasion dedicated to the terrorist attack victims.
One person wrote: "I know it's little mix's thing to dress inappropriately but you'd think they'd put clothes on for such an important event, no? #OneLove," while another viewer added, "OMG how embarrassing - Little Mix forgot their clothes #OneLoveManchester."
Another one tweeted, "Can't deal with the outfits Little Mix wear. They're at a memorial concert looking like they're about to go a strip club."
But the loyal fans of the band defended the girl gang, as one said: "Stop moaning about the outfit choices of @LittleMix and just watch the show. Remember why the girls are doing this #OneLoveManchester." Another person echoed the same sentiments, "Stop moaning about the outfit choices of @LittleMix and just watch the show. Remember why the girls are doing this #OneLoveManchester."
The benefit concert which was formally announced by Ariana Grande on Tuesday was held at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.
The concert organisers hoped to raise at least £2m for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund as all the artists performed free of charge.
