Karlie Kloss apologized for her involvement in a controversial Vogue photoshoot, which attracted criticism for casting a white woman in a Japanese-themed photoshoot.
The spread — which appeared in the fashion magazine’s “diversity themed” March issue — featured the 24-year-old model dressed in traditional geisha garb for a series of photos.
One had her posing alongside a sumo wrestler; another, walking down the stairs of a tea house in flowered kimono. In all, Kloss is wearing a Geisha’s Shimada-styled nihongami wig.
Photographer Mikael Jansson shot the editorial in Japan, reportedly as an homage to a 1966 Vogue shoot by Richard Avedon of German model Veruschka. »

Some folks look out on the world, and all they see are the differences between people, the things that set us apart. “Mudbound” is a hymn to what we all share — the human struggle, the mutual desire to succeed and create a better world for our children — and it is a damning indictment of those who stand in the way of such progress. Set deep in the Mississippi Delta, it’s the epic story of two families, one white, the other black, who’ve each sown hope among fields too sodden to be much use — and though the sheer scope of the material overwhelms “Pariah” director Dee Rees at times, she finds shoots of optimism among the mire that couldn’t be more welcome at a moment when the country seems more divided than ever.
