Prudish LEGALLY BLONDE star Reese Witherspoon is urging fashion experts to rethink kids' summer clothes - because the threads are becoming too tarty.

The Hollywood mum, who has a second baby on the way, admits she was horrified by the clothes on offer to her three-year-old daughter AVA on a recent shopping trip.

She says, "I needed to get my daughter a bathing suit and this woman in the store says, 'We have these fantastic bikinis.'

"I go, 'A bikini? For a three-year-old? I don't think so.

"I don't like kids wearing clothes that make them look like and adult or sexy. It really, really bothers me. I saw this little girl wearing a T-shirt that said, 'Porn Star' and she was just five years old. I wanted to cover her."
