Bindi Irwin, the teen daughter of the late Steve Irwin, has spoken out about young girls who don't dress their age. She has stressed the importance of modesty, which is a scarce topic in the celebrity culture. In a Monday interview with News Corps Australia, Bindi said that she actually felt sorry for girls who try to dress in a revealing way. While she has been having fun amping up her appearance in a more feminine departure from khaki, she wants to keep her style classy and conservative.
The modest teenager won America’s heart through her appearances with her father, The Crocodile Hunter. She has an upbeat screen persona in her own right and has enjoyed a varied career. After her father’s death, she picked up the mantle for wildlife conservation that he felt so passionately about. It doesn’t seem to be a ploy to get attention because she and her mother, Terri, seem like the real deal. By the way, Bindi surely has seen her mother’s conservative style and beauty and formed her own fashion goals.
Christianity Today optimistically stated today that Bindi Irwin could be a sign of a new movement toward more modest dress among the teen population. It would nice if it was so, but the Kardashians and other celebrities push the envelope so far and impressionable teen girls follow their lead. Just recently, Kendall Jenner shocked the world with a revealing dress she wore to the Much Music Video Awards. She is just 18 years old.
Bindi Irwin may have something that the Kardashians and Jenners don’t have; she may be on the way to building the love and respect from her fan base that was afforded her father around the world. Her classy style and mature demeanor give depth to her character that flashy fashion and bare skin cannot emulate. This interview has won her accolades from varied segments of the population who view the teen and pre-teen girl’s risque fashion culture as very disturbing.
