Richard Wilkins says he’s ‘proud’ of son Christian for wearing a dress to the Logie Awards as he defends the young socialite: ‘I am not ashamed of him!’

Richard Wilkins has come out to defend his son Christian after the 26-year-old was trolled online for wearing a backless dress to the Logie Awards last week.

In an emotional post on Instagram, the 68-year-old fired back at critics and said that he was proud of his progressive son.

‘So… to anyone who dares to suggest that I am in any way “ashamed” of my son Christian .. for whatever reason… You are wrong!’ he raged.

‘I could not be more proud!! He is an exceptional human being who will leave his stamp on the world long after his detractors have disappeared. I love you unconditionally.’

Richard wasn’t the only one to defend Christian, with his Today show co-star Karl Stefanovic also voicing his support for the blond socialite.  

‘Beyond exceptional. He is a light. A beautiful human light. Who comes from beautiful humans. And light,’ Karl commented.

‘Anyone who thinks otherwise ain’t worth knowing or paying attention to you. I love you guys so much. Soar higher,’ he added.

Christian also hit back at a Twitter troll who criticised his flamboyant wardrobe.

The anonymous user @SaraVic333 tweeted on Tuesday ‘it’s not normal’ for men to wear women’s clothes, before adding: ‘STOP normalising this bulls**t!!!’

Christian, 26, responded to this criticism on Wednesday by mocking the way some people react hysterically to men who like to wear dresses.

‘What is happening to the world!!!! Masculinity is ending!!! Burn everything!!’ he tweeted to rapturous support from his Twitter followers. 

Many fans praised the Filthy Rich and Homeless star for embracing a feminine look instead of the traditional tuxedo favoured by men on the red carpet.

‘She’s so mad you’re prettier than her and can pull off a dress which she’d most definitely be unable to… jealously IS a disease,’ one Twitter user wrote.

‘I think you’re a fabulous role model,’ another added.

Christian put his best fashion foot forward on Sunday when he arrived on the Logies red carpet in a sheer backless dress.

He wore his long blond hair loosely, opted for a pair of quirky hoof-style heels, and accessorised with a dramatic necklace that draped down his back.

Christian made sure the cameras caught him at every angle as he showcased his modelesque features, including his chiselled jawline. 

He spoke about his experimental style in an interview with Body + Soul last year.

‘I remember when I used to work at Channel Nine just doing marketing and some days I’d just go in with pink glitter all over my eyes. And they’d be like, “Why are you wearing pink glitter?”‘ he said. 

‘I would say, “Because woke up and I was a bit sad today, and I just felt like it was a pink glitter eye shadow day.” I’ve always gone into makeup with that ethos.

‘If you want to wear it, if you want to do eyes and lips, who is telling you that you can only do one? Do it! Do whatever makes you feel good.’
