The fashion designer shared two pictures of a model sporting huge shades along with baggy clothing from her new collection for Spring/ Summer 2018. 

She wrote next to the images: "Back to work! Start the year with new frames from the Spring Summer 2018 #VBEyewear collection inspired by 1970s retro classics and updated for a feathery-light, fresh and modern look. Available at victoriabeckham.com and 36 Dover Street now. #VBSS18."

However, fans of mother-of-four Victoria Beckham were not pleased with the images, pointing out the model’s very slim frame and accusing it of sending out a negative message about body image.

One concerned follower wrote: "The model looks very poorly. This look definitely should not be promoted. She looks dangerously thin."

Another said: "I wish fashion brands would empower models who don’t look as if they were about to collapse under the weight of those frames."

A third follower commented: "Shame on you Victoria! Where is your social responsibility? You should be promoting healthy looking bodies not skeletons. No wonder our children have low self esteem."

A fourth wrote: "Love you Vic but this is not inspiring for young girls! Your model looks skeletal, surely Harper would not look up to this lady."

However, Victoria’s choice of model was supported by a number of social media users, with one person firing back at the negative comments with: "Wow the amount of women body shaming other women is shocking."

Another wrote: "Sad to read such negative comments and for people to think it’s ok to body shame a fellow person. Everyone is different and this model could be very healthy. Those commenting in such a disrespectful and insensitive way are the people with the issues, not the model or @victoriabeckham."

A second person wrote: "Body shaming is body shaming and there should be no room for it on any platform, end of!! Doesn’t matter whether your “perceived” as under weight or a little larger or a lot larger than what’s “perceived” as “normal” or “acceptable”. We are all different shapes and sizes and beautiful in our own right and that’s okay... or at least it should be!!"

A third follower asked: "Why is it okay for us to tell curvy women to love and embrace themselves but tell small framed women they’re limited to what they’re allowed to do?"

OK! Online has contacted representatives for Victoria Beckham for comment.
