Hailey and Justin Bieber are facing criticism for "not dressing appropriately" during their recent meeting with the president of France.

Earlier this week, the pair flew to Paris, where they were invited to meet Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, at the Élysée Palace. 

The notoriously stylish stars dressed to impress; Hailey opted for a nude cut-out, ab-baring dress by LaQuan Smith, while Justin opted for a charcoal suit and blue and white Nike sneakers. Following their visit, the 27-year-old singer shared a photo of the foursome to Instagram that earned mixed reactions from fans.

Although the photo earned the star more than 5 million likes and tons of heart and fire emojis from loyal fans, some felt as though the pair's looks were "not appropriate" for the formal meeting.

"Did nobody tell this young girl how to dress for the occasion?" one person tweeted, while another wrote, "Love her outfit. I'm not a prude, but not appropriate to meet the president and his wife."

"The fact that she went to meet a president in that outfit? Girl you really are out of touch with reality. You wouldn’t even wear that to work, let alone to meet a president," another commented.

"Show respect to the office of the president," someone else chimed in. "Not with an unbuttoned shirt and sneakers — and I won't comment on Mrs. Bieber."

"I find her dress was inappropriate and him wearing sneakers with a suit to meet a president?! Do better. Y’all have stylists!" another person wrote.

"Not to be this person, but Hailey and Justin, you are two grown ass adults with money," a follower commented. "How the hell are you gonna pull up to meet the president of France and his wife wearing two outfits that would be much better suited at some sort of bougie cocktail lounge or nightclub? Did nobody teach either of you about etiquette?"

This isn't the first time that the Bieber-clan has been called out for their "questionable" style choices. Back in April, the "Peaches" singer faced backlash for wearing his hair in dreadlocks, while Hailey was criticized for "letting him" do it.

"Justin, you're holding a black baby while simultaneously appropriating the culture with your hairstyle choice. I'm disappointed in you AND your wife for letting you do this to your head. Does neither of you have any sense whatsoever?" someone commented via Instagram.

"For someone who claims to be so 'woke' about the Black Lives Matter movement, this sure is ignorant of you," said another commenter.
