Bindi Irwin urges girls to wear less revealing clothing
Bindi Irwin urges girls to wear less revealing clothing

Enviro-warrior Bindi Irwin has had something to say about revealing clothes ahead of her 16th birthday, urging girls to cover up.

The daughter of the late Steve Irwin has reflected on growing up in the spotlight, and how she has tried to develop her own style, News Limited reported.

But, despite her changing tastes in clothes, she still believes that girls her age should stop showing off too much skin.

“I’m a big advocate for young girls dressing their age,” she told News Limited.

“I mean, for me, I look around at a lot of young girls that are my age and they’re always trying to dress older. Whether it’s wearing revealing clothes or hardly wearing any clothes at all, I feel really bad for them.

“It kind of has the opposite effect in some ways ... it kind of does the opposite where it makes you look younger and like you’re trying too hard.”

The 15-year-old admits that she has swapped her usual khaki outfit for a bit more of an experimental look, trying on different styles of clothes and make-up.

“A lot of times I want to grab these girls and say ‘look ... in 10 years you’ll regret this. Just dress like who you are," she said.
"Don’t try so hard. A pair of jeans and a T-shirt is just as gorgeous and even makes you look classier’."

Bindi was caught up in controversy in the US after the Irwin family aligned itself with SeaWorld.

The maritime theme park was facing a backlash against the Blackfish documentary, and many people saw the move as a cynical attempt for SeaWorld to improve its image.

Bindi will celebrate her 16th birthday on July 24.
