Once again, controversy has splashed Chiara Ferragni. The Italian influencer and businesswoman shared on her Instagram account (with more than 29 million followers) a photograph in which she poses semi-nude, something that has not gone unnoticed at all. While it is true that it is not the first time that Ferragni shares snapshots of this type on his social networks, in which he shows himself with total naturalness before his community, this time he has raised more blisters than usual (if possible). Above all the barrage of criticism, there was one that stood out especially. The comment in question came from an 11-year-old girl named Giulia and read: "What's the message for us? To attract attention we have to undress?" the little girl said. He added: "My mother is 34 years old and if I uploaded a photo like that, I would feel terrible."

The influencer did not sit idly by and replied: "No one can judge us or make us feel bad. Posting a photo like this shouldn't put anyone to shame. On the contrary... Why should a woman in her underwear be ashamed of her body? Do I off the Puritans? So, mission accomplished." It seemed that with these words Ferragni had put an end to this matter. However, the girl's mother communicated through Instagram that her daughter's account had been canceled and, according to the Italian newspaper "La Repubblica", it was she who supervised the content of the little girl on social networks.

Chiara Ferragni, champion of the feminist cause

Chiara Ferragni is a strong defender of feminism, as she has demonstrated through her social networks as well as in her different public appearances. At the Sanremo Festival, the influencer, in her role as master of ceremonies, made a great impact with a spectacular 'naked dress' by Dior that served to reinforce her feminist message: "If you cover yourself you are a nun, if not, a whore". With these forceful words, the Italian claimed gender equality in an event that beyond music has become a great fashion catwalk and a space in which to be heard. The piece, a body revealing dress, simulated her naked body wrapped in a delicate flesh-colored tulle fabric with rhinestones, an optical illusion inspired by a design by Maria Grazia Chiuri for the spring-summer 2018 collection.

The intention was to claim the right of women to dispose of their bodies and not to be judged for it. "This illusion of nudity is a reminder that whoever chooses to look or feel sexy is not authorizing anyone to justify men's violence or mitigate their faults. This is the body of a woman, that of Chiara Ferragni, who wants to give voice to all the women of the world who are subjected to prohibitions and abuses, to all those who are told that their body produces shame, that it is only an object and that it incites sin. This is everyone's body, let him who is free from sin cast the first stone!"

Following this ideological line, Ferragni closed the event with four striking looks by Schiaparelli – "The woman and warrior mother", "The clothing of Human Rights", "Body painting" and "Male femininity" – with which he sought to give visibility to important issues that affect women, such as motherhood and the right to abortion.
