Staci Child is the daughter of Tim Mathieson. Tim is dating Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, so you can imagine why her bikini photoshoot for Zoo magazine is causing a stir.

Tons of people have raised their concerns and disapproval over the shoot, including RSL State President David McLachlan who said the Australian flag should be respected.

“Recognizing generational change in opinions, there would be many in the community, including me, that see the use of the flag in this way as most inappropriate.”

Australians for Constitutional Monarchy spokesman Prof David Flint said,

“It may be somewhat undignified and not what you would have done but then again you’ve got to allow young people a certain degree of liberty in these sort of things. Apart from questions of good taste or not, that’s not the issue. The issue is that she obviously likes the flag and that’s a good thing.”

Yes, Staci does pose with the Australian flag and her bikini, but that is about all. However, she says her father loved the pictures and thought that, “… Julia will think it’s a very Australian thing to do,”

I don’t see the big deal. Stacy looks great and it is not too risqué at all! I think she looks fabulous and people need to relax! Don’t they have bigger problems to deal with? You can see the Zoo pictures here.

Aside from posing for Zoo magazine, Staci who is 31, is a stylist to celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Donatella Verscace and Paula Abdul. She is based in New York.
