Vic­to­ria’s se­cret

Khaleej Times - City Times - - COVER STORY -

Case: Isn’t it funny how con­tro­ver­sial the cat­walk can be? Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret sent Kar­lie Kloss down the run­way in a full on Na­tive Amer­i­can head­dress. But you know, more sexy. (Eye roll) In­sen­si­tive to Na­tive Amer­i­cans? We think so. The Na­tive Amer­i­can head­dress has spir­i­tual and cer­e­mo­nial sig­nif­i­cance, which only cer­tain mem­bers of the tribe are al­lowed to wear. We’ve seen this trend seep into mu­sic fes­ti­vals like Coachella where head­dresses, bindis and other cul­tur­ally sig­nif­i­cant items are used like fash­ion ac­ces­sories.

Ver­dict: It’s in­sen­si­tive and wrong. Don’t do it. There are other ways to look fash­ion­able. End of dis­cus­sion.
