of the embarrassing nature of the incident to a young girl, following a polite
request from her father, Jude Law.
Horrified mother Sadie Frost has apologised for her young daughter Iris's rather rude appearance at London Fashion Week.
The designer's daughter was seen in the front row of Vivienne Westwood's show in a cute 'Love Hearts' sweetie print dress. But on closer inspection some of the sweets slogans were a bit too fruity.
At first glance it appears to be a sweet dress – very age-appropriate for an 11-year-old. But on closer inspection Iris's dress was emblazoned with slogans including 'drop dead', 'drink
poison', 'eat sh*t' and 'blow me'.

Sorry: Sadie Frost apologised for not noticing her daughter's less than sweet frock
'I assumed it was just the sayings
the sweets have on them. I'm sorry for any upset it may have
caused..Iris is a sweet, innocent girl.'
It appears the 46-year-old
mother-of-four was unaware of the rude message on the love hearts dress,
and a spokesperson didn't respond to Mail Online's request for comment

In 2002 Iris, then aged two, was rushed to hospital after swallowing part of an ecstasy tablet at a children's birthday party.
The pill had been left on the floor of Soho House, where the party was held.
However, thankfully, the situation was rather less dramatic today.
Sadie and Iris were joined by geeky chef Heston Blumenthal, and his teenage daughter Jessica.
Other celebrities in attendance were Jo Wood, in a plunging red gown, Gizzi Erskine, Rita Ora and Gabriella Cilmi.
Somewhat bizarrely, the designer admitted at the Red Label show that she does not like some of the clothes in her collections.
Dame Westwood said the rise of disposable fashion means people look too similar.
before the show, she said: 'In history people dressed much better than
we do today. If you saw Queen Elizabeth it would be amazing, she came
from another planet. She was so attractive in what she was wearing.
People have never looked so ugly as they do today regarding their dress.

have been trained to be consumers and we are all consuming far too much.
'I'm a fashion designer and people think what do I know but I'm talking about all this disposable crap.
I'm saying buy less, choose well, make it last. Everybody looks like
clones and the only people you notice are my age. I don't notice anybody

Dame Vivienne said delegating some of her designs means sometimes she ends up being unhappy with how they look.

fashion designer's latest collection, which she showed at My Beautiful
Fashion at Goldsmith's Hall, central London, was met by rapturous
applause from the audience.
Dame Vivienne said her Red Label was fundamentally very British.
'We can't help being British, even if we wanted to we couldn't be. We always see things through British eyes.

mix of people, a mongrel nation but even if I was inspired by Africa or
North Pole it would always look British, it's just a way of putting things together and a 'don't care' attitude about clothes.
'The way we put things together is laid back and eccentric.'
asked about the resurgence of punk in fashion, the designer, who is
regarded as the godmother of punk, said: 'I have no interest whatsoever
if it is resurging, except to say I think it's healthy for kids to latch
on to that kind of thing and they can look great.'
The show was in support of the Environmental Justice Foundation's No Place Like Home campaign for climate change refugees.

Less Punk, more polished : Vivienne Westwood delivers a very 'British' show
Doyenne of British fashion, Vivienne Westwood is one of London's hottest tickets this week – with a front row to prove it.
But having turned 70 last year, it seems the Queen of punk's outlandish designs have toned-down somewhat.
Perhaps more committed to her ecological pursuits – the designer has raised 1.5m for Cool Earth in just a few months – Vivienne places less onus on making a statement on the catwalk.
The first model appeared in a raincoat and headscarf similar to those worn by the Queen.
Signature pinstripes and tartan were evident throughout but made way for geometric prints and evening gowns fit for loyal fan Helena Bonham Carter.
The collection also featured tailored
tartan suits, taffeta evening dresses and smoking jackets with the
models sporting African body paint.
Silhouettes were simple, elegant with draped ruching and nipped-in waists.
The feel was kept 'Westwood' with body tattoos, scribbled across the hands, legs and arms.
