Richard Wilkins has revealed that he 'didn't flinch' upon seeing his son Christian Wilkins on the red carpet in a backless dress at the Logie Awards last month.

The entertainment reporter, 68, who defended his son in an emotional Instagram post last month after he was trolled online for his Logie Award outfit, told The Daily Telegraph's Confidential on Sunday that he admires his son's 'bravery and style'.

Richard said that his son is simply having fun with his choice of fashion ensembles.

'I don't understand that (parents not being in their son's corner), but I certainly am. I didn't flinch when I saw Christian in that dress. I didn't think much of it,' he told the publication of Christian's Logie Award dress.

He admitted that there's been the 'odd time over the years' when Christian has come down the stairs in an outfit that he deemed a bit questionable. 

'It's not all my cup of tea, I couldn't pull it off. But he is doing it because he is having fun.'

Richard went on to praise his son for 'shaking things up' with his bold sense of style. 

'I admire his bravery. He has great style. He is fashion forward. I am boring in my black suit, black shoes and a bow-tie. I'm not really shaking things up, am I?' he said.

In an Instagram post last month, Richard fired back at critics after trolls suggested Christian, 26, was a 'disappointment to the family'.

'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 admire his bravery. He has great style. He is fashion forward. I am boring in my black suit, black shoes and a bow-tie. I'm not really shaking things up, am I?' Richard said
