It wouldn’t be a surprise if people found the lack of clothing offensive at a Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. But this time it was the clothing itself that did the offending. Here’s WTVT.

“Here it is: a Native American feathered headdress. The model, Karlie Kloss, caused quite a stir during last week’s fashion show. A headdress was a war bonnet something women don't wear in Native American culture.”

The Los Angeles Times explains Native Americans were offended because the headdress has significant meaning.

Headdresses are also known as war bonnets. Men were these as a symbol of honor during special occasions. Each feather represents the brave deeds that man has done in his life and come together to make the headdress.

While some were outraged with the attire, WOGX reports others felt people were a little too sensitive.

“Not everyone feels that way, people saying the fashion show was just art and it shouldn’t be criticized ... While others are saying she didn’t do anything. No one got killed, no one got hurt, she looks pretty.”

Victoria’s Secret sent out an official apology and has removed the walk from its show. Joining in on the apology was Karlie Kloss on Twitter.


"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."


The Victoria Secret Fashion Show will air on December 4th.
