Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock has been scolded by her mum for going topless in promotional images for her swimwear line In’A’Seashell.
The 28-year-old launched the brand with her pal Gabrielle Urquhart last year, and during the coronavirus lockdown, has been involved in promoting their pieces by posing in various bikinis at home and posting them on Instagram.
At the end of May, Leigh-Anne took her at-home photoshoots up a notch by sharing snaps of her reclining on a sun lounger in her garden wearing only a pair of mint green, high-rise bikini bottoms, with her arms over her breasts to cover her modesty.
Across the series of topless images, she wrote in the caption, “Temperatures rising… @inaseashell,” and “My @inaseashell makes me feel free… how does it make you feel?”
But in a new interview with Britain’s Daily Mirror, Leigh-Anne revealed her mother Deborah was less than impressed by the risque pictures.
“I posted the picture and my mum was like, ‘Leigh-Anne! A bit much!'” the Black Magic hitmaker joked, before adding that her older sister also scolded her for the photoshoot. “Now I feel really bad. At the same time… I feel people have done worse.”
Leigh-Anne, who recently announced her engagement to soccer star beau Andre Gray, launched her solo passion project in April last year.
“So for the past year and a half I’ve been working on something very, very exciting with my girl @gabriellenikita,” she told her Instagram followers. “We are so excited to reveal we will be launching our very own swimwear brand called @inaseashell a brand that not only promotes self-love but encourages anyone who wears it to feel confident and sexy AF (as f**k)!”
