Victoria's Secret has apologized over a Native American-inspired look worn at its annual fashion show, and says it will pull the ensemble from the event's upcoming TV broadcast. Model Karlie Kloss walked the runway during the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last week in an ensemble that included a feathered headdress, turquoise jewelry and a fringed belt. Native Appropriations, a blog focused on "documenting images of Indigenous peoples, languages and cultures in every day life," wrote: "Besides the daily harm of these ongoing microaggressions for Native folks, the sexualization of Native women continues to be an ignored and continuing epidemic." "This isn't 'fun,' this isn't a 'fantasy' character. This is about our cultures, our bodies, and our lives," the post continued. "Native people demand and deserve far more respect than this." Victoria's Secret apologized in a statement released Saturday via its Facebook page.
