Mother-of-one Liz Hurley, 52, has come under fire for Instagram snaps with her 16-year-old son Damian in which she’s wearing sexy ensembles, including a French maid’s outfit.
The star of The Royals sent fans into a frenzy with her latest post, a behind-the-scenes snap from the show in which she’s seen in a tiny black dress and fishnets, alongside her teenage son and co-star Joan Collins.
Another recent snap of mother and son from Damian’s 16th birthday party showed the bikini designer wearing a sequinned dress with a very plunging neckline, prompting some followers to urge her to cover up.
‘Does he still breastfeed?’ one asked. ‘If not, cover them up. He is your teenage son.’
‘I’d be running around looking for eye bleach if my mum was dressed like this,’ one commented, while others branded her ‘tacky’ and ‘pathetic’.
But many fans supporting Liz, saying she looked fabulous and argued that the actress shouldn’t feel forced to dress a certain way just because she’s a mother.
Now Cai Graham, author of The Teen Toolbox, has warned that such photos ‘are likely to have repercussions for her child at a later date’, while Parenting Expert, Annette Du Bois agreed she should stick to ‘less-sexualised and provocative photos’.

The star was branded ‘tacky and pathetic’ for posing in a plunging gown at her son’s 16th birthday party
‘Liz Hurley is a celebrity and lives and embraces the glamorous, decadent lifestyle.
The fact that she has exposed her son to this world from a young age could potentially mean that Liz has ‘normalised’ the action of asking her son to take sexy photos.
‘Other children or parents looking at Liz’s parenting choices will raise eyebrows and may encourage trolling by fellow teens on social media for example who may not have such a candid relationship with their parents.
She added that Liz should also avoid getting her son to take sexy snaps of her in swimwear.
The actress and designer previously admitted that Damian is the photographer behind some of her sultry swimwear shots
‘Whilst she gives permission and welcomes her son taking some pictures of her in a swimsuit and other photos in sultry poses, it may be sending out the wrong message to teenage boys.
‘It may confuse other teenage boys to think it is ok to take photos of women in swimsuits and holds up the notion of women being perceived as sex symbols.
‘I would encourage Liz to stick to him taking the less risqué photos of her.
‘If he is showing a keen interest in photography Liz should explore her son’s passion by taking him on trips where he can take pictures of scenery or nature.’
Fans urged the star of The Royals to wear more demure clothing around her son
Cai Graham argued that Damian may look back and feel embarassed by the snaps in years to come.
‘Liz Hurley – whilst prepared for, and accepting the attention she is receiving on social media posts about herself – is inadvertently drawing attention to her son,’ she said.
‘Social media posts do not go away, so I believe that Liz Hurley ought to be acting more responsibly and taking into consideration.
‘Whilst she may be personally trying to remain in the media spotlight – her son’s life is only just beginning and he probably does not need such media fodder that will be hanging around for years to come.
‘Whilst we try desperately to educate our children about the importance of internet etiquette, it’s a shame that Liz is not affording the same respect and awareness for her own son.
However, many supporters argued that Liz shouldn’t feel forced to dress a certain way just because she’s a mother
The Basingstoke beauty gushed about her son’s budding photography career during an appearance on Watch What Happened Live After Show.
Elizabeth explained that while Damian doesn’t take all of her swimsuit shots, the youngster does appear to have some talent when it comes to the camera lens.
Liz said: ‘Here’s the thing, he doesn’t take all my bikini photos, by the way. Some of them are professional, some of them are my sister, anybody who I can get.
‘When we’re on holiday together, sure he’ll take some pictures. And you know, he’s got a really good eye and he’s studying photography and it’s ridiculous.’
