“I don’t get it (parents aren’t 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 about it,” he told the publication of Christian’s dress for the Logie Award.

He admitted there have been “strange times” over the years when Christian has come down the stairs in an outfit he felt was a bit questionable.

“It’s not all my thing, I couldn’t pull it off. But he does it because he has fun.’

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

“I admire his courage. He has great style. He is fashion conscious. I’m 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 claimed Christian, 26, was a “disappointment to the family”.

‘Well… for anyone who dares to suggest that I’m in any way ‘ashamed’ of my son Christian… for whatever reason… you’re wrong!’ he raged.

‘I couldn’t be prouder!! He is an extraordinary man who will make his mark on the world long after his detractors are gone. I love you unconditionally.’

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

“More than extraordinary. He is a light. A beautiful human light. Who comes from beautiful people. And light,” commented Karl.

“Anyone who thinks otherwise is not worthy of knowing you or paying attention to you. I love you so much. Soar higher,’ he added.

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

Anonymous user @SaraVic333 tweeted that “it’s not normal” for men to wear women’s clothing before adding, “STOP normalizing these cops!!!”

Christian responded to this criticism by poking fun at how some people react hysterically to men who like to wear dresses.

“What is happening to the world!!!! Masculinity is coming to an end!!! Burn everything!!’ he tweeted in enthusiastic support from his Twitter followers.

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

“She’s so mad you’re prettier than her and you can take off a dress she definitely couldn’t…Jealousy IS a disease,” wrote one Twitter user.

“I think you are a fabulous role model,” added another.

Christian looked his best last month when he arrived on the Logies red carpet in a sheer backless dress.

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

Christian made sure the cameras caught him from every angle as he showed off his model-like features, including his chiseled jawline.

Last year he spoke about his experimental style in an interview with Body + Soul.

“I remember when I was just doing marketing at Channel Nine and some days I would just go over my eyes with pink glitter. And they said, “Why are you wearing pink glitter?” he said.

“I’d say, ‘Cause I woke up and I was a little sad today, and I just felt like it was going to be a pink glitter eyeshadow day.” I’ve always gone into makeup with that ethos.

“If you’re going to wear it, if you’re going to do eyes and lips, who tells you you can only do one thing? Do it! Do whatever is good for you.”
