Karlie Kloss’ Native American Outfit will be Removed From Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012

Victoria’s Secret has officially apologized, via Facebook and Twitter, for the really, really awful Native American headdress/bikini look they showed on model Karlie Kloss at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last week. They’ve promised to cut the entire look from the December broadcast “out of respect.” The company said it had “no intention to offend anyone.”

Karlie Kloss followed up the brand’s apology with one of her own: “I am deeply sorry if what I wore during the VS Show offended anyone. I support VS’s decision to remove the outfit from the broadcast.”

Although I’m glad Victoria’s Secret and Karlie both apologized, and also that the look will be cut from the runway broadcast, I don’t think we should let either party off the hook so easily. This is the second time in recent weeks that a pretty, fashion-y white girl has worn a headdress replica like this as part of a major pop culture event; the item also made an appearance during a climactic scene in Lana Del Rey's Ride, a strange and tone-deaf moment in a video that was otherwise deeply affecting. The whole cultural appropriation thing is a serious and common problem, and Tweeting out a quick statement shouldn’t be enough to address it. 

The headdress as fashion accessory relies on and reinforces stereotypes of Native Americans, a minority culture and race which the United States destroyed to build itself as an empire. I don’t know anything, but I do know that the headdress belongs to a specific spiritual practice, and commodifying it to sell corporate panties for Christmas — or a pouty-lipped pop star’s latest albums — fits nicely into the genocide-y, pillage-y relationship America has with American Indians. 

I’m just saying that maybe saying, “I’m sorry I like, offended you or whatever,” isn’t good enough. No: be sorry for being racist! Or ignorant and thoughtless, at least. Any other kind of apology is just smart, politically correct PR.

Greg Kadel response to Karlie’s retouched Numero picture

It was Greg’s desire to represent Karlie as she naturally is … slender, athletic and beautiful. That is why he released the images as he intended them to be seen by the public. He is shocked and dismayed that unbeknownst to him, Numéro took it upon themselves to airbrush over his original images. Greg stands by his original artwork and cannot stress enough that he not only was unaware of the magazine’s retouching but also finds the airbrushing of Karlie unacceptable and unnecessary

Karlie Kloss Again Victim Of Her Own Body.

The first pic was sent out by Greg Kadel’s studio, with the ribs intact in full glory. The second, photoshopped and printed by Numéro Magazine. 

Not the first time Karlie is in this trouble, if you remember this happened back in december 2011, with her Vogue Italia December editorial, when this picture was removed from VI Site, because all the controversy about her thin body.
