Runway Remorse

 

Victoria’s Secret’s yearly runway shows feature sexy, over-the-top styles with a borderline costume party vibe. This year model Karlie Kloss walked  the cat walk in a Native American headdress. Her leopard lingerie mixed with turquoise statement jewelry was an exotic scene. However, certain Native American groups were outraged, protesting and claiming that Victoria’s Secret is misrepresenting their culture.

The company has been apologizing profusely and has agreed to pull the look from their upcoming TV broadcast.

Ruth Hopkins, a columnist for Indian Country, said that “making a mockery of Native identity is unacceptable.”

“After years of patronage and loyalty to the Victoria’s Secret brand, I am repaid with the mean-spirited, disrespectful trivialization of my blood ancestry and the proud Native identity I work hard to instill in my children,” she wrote. “Well, I’ve got news for you, Victoria’s Secret. Consider yourself boycotted.”

Thoughts anyone?

    This happened to no doubts most recent music video as well. Gwen posed as a native american princess and the band members wereccowbiys. I heard the video was taken off air for the same exact reasons.

    Maybe I will not wear my turquoise jewelry in protest. I dont think its mocking. I think its inspired. Redic
