Supermodel ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO has been blasted by critics for taking her five-year-old daughter to the Coachella music festival over the weekend (19-20Apr14).
The annual event attracts party people and the biggest artists in music to the California desert, and the Victoria's Secret pin-up, who has become a regular, decided it was time to introduce little Anja to the festivities, posting photos on her Instagram.com page, including one of herself, two female friends, and her daughter and another young girl in the backseat of a car on the way to Coachella.
One follower commented, "If you have to drive to Coachella in a car seat, then you are probably too young to go."
Ambrosio, 33, posted more pictures of Anja enjoying herself at the music festival, including a nighttime shot, in which her daughter is being held up to see above the crowd.
Another disgusted follower wrote, "I'm a young mom that enjoys music festivals as well, however there is a limit on bringing kids to a festival like this one where it's full of druggies, drunkies, and of course a sexy environment that is unnecessary to be exposed (to) at this early age," while a third added, "Really sick to bring a kid to a festival! Bad parenting."
This was Ambrosio's second weekend at the popular event - last Saturday (12Apr14), she was spotted without her daughter, but with pal Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
