Victoria’s Secret slammed for cultural appropriation once again

In case you missed it, the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was held in Shanghai this week and with it came some (more) controversy. Visa issues aside, the lingerie giant is being accused of cultural appropriation yet again, this time for its “Nomadic Adventure” segment, which featured Native American-inspired headdresses and “tribal” motifs. Like we said, it’s not the first time Victoria’s Secret has come under fire for appropriating Native American culture: back in 2012, they were slammed for the headdress that Karlie Kloss wore, which resulted in the entire look being cut from the televised show and a public apology from both VS and Kloss. (Fashionista)
