Victoria’s Secret’s Sexy Native American Outfit Draws Criticism

Victoria’s Secret’s runway show doesn’t air until Dec. 4, but one image from the show won’t make the final cut: Karlie Kloss draped in a feathered headdress and turquoise. The look struck a sour chord with the U.S.’ indigenous communities. That’s hardly a surprise considering this kind of thing has been done before and it rarely goes well. Let’s count the most recent ways: (1) Last year’s Urban Outfitters Navajo Hipster panties controversy (2) Last month’s Gap “Manifest Destiny” fiasco (3) Victoria’s Secret’s sexy little geisha kerfuffle from two months ago and (4) America’s Top Model making Native American Mariah Watchman dress like Pocahontas for a photo shoot.
