Taking a cue from the Repubs that nothing is wrong with it or tasteless if you say it is OK, besides the Native Americans are not even in the 47%.

Good grief someone get the poor lady a sandwich already... These models need to stop fighting their natural bodies. Fashion industry is run by people that don't appreciate how real women look. It's awful.

What do liberals have to do with this ? Conservatives are the ones who are outraged over anything they see as having to do with sexuality

She should take it all off.... IMMEDIATELY :-P
01:03 PM on 11/08/2012
I am personally, totally in favor of this. What? You'll take it off when you get back to your dressing room. Um, No, we said to take it off "Immediately" Yes it is that offensive. Just your headdress? No, everything. No, we don't have time to get you anything to cover yourself with, just take it off now, please.

I think they could have had a Native American model wear that costume, it would show diversity and equality. I think the Victoria Secret models could be more diverse, there are beautiful women from all different cultures and races, not everyone is a blonde bombshell..

I'd really not hold your breath, often times diversity is shown as having 1 Asian or 1 black model, even in Hollywood where it's supposed to be more "liberal" you see the same thing.
03:25 PM on 11/08/2012
Except that even if the model was Native the problem would be with the headdress. It's a sacred item that is only given to very respected members of the community.

Imagine if you saw a model walking on the catwalk with an American veteran's Purple Heart and other war medals, because it was trendy. That is exactly what VS is doing here.

Hm, I want to take a wild guess here and the ones in the comments section advocating this as no big deal aren't native American.

I was going to say I bet most are Caucasian that are less than a 3rd Native American, but figured it was pointless.
If you're native American, I do feel bad for you and can empathize.

Doesnt matter what race you are if you are degrading a culture's sacred symbols or perpetuating negative stereotypes.

So, no one is allowed to wear clothing associated with other people's ethnicity/traditional culture. Got it! Thanks PC Police!!
04:53 PM on 11/08/2012
It is more than just an item of clothing! It is a regalia item with deep ritual and social significance! It would be like wearing a war veteran's Purple Heart because it looks cool!
11:51 AM on 11/09/2012
OK, then I am going to get mad at Flavor-Flav for constantly wearing a Viking helmet - I mean, that headgear had deep ritual and social significance for my sensitive Viking ancestors - how dare he disrespect my people in this manner!

seriously!?? i love native americans, and understand the oppression our people have felt over the years but WHO CARES. This is America, get with the times people. One love
05:59 AM on 11/09/2012
Fine I'm all for that however they should wear a KKK uniform. Like YOU said "WHO CARES.This is America, get with the times people. One love"

Insert witty statement here

Even on HP, where I would expect to see more PC people than average, these polls always go to the "no big deal" vote. Which leads me to believe that all this drama about about offending people is probably about 10 people in the country that just complain about everything.
10:11 AM on 11/08/2012
What is wrong with displaying the gorgeous part of another culture? How on earth is that offensive, they aren't making fun of it.

A lot of it has to do with the racial history associated with the "war bonnet"

It would be akin to an African American woman walking out eating a watermelon. Very racist.
02:44 PM on 11/08/2012
They may not be making fun of it, but it is a sacred item that is bestowed upon important members of the community, and used to only be awarded in cases of extreme bravery. It would be like someone walking around wearing a U.S. soldier's Purple Heart medal
10:58 PM on 11/08/2012
Or people walking around wearing a rosary? Why aren't people up in arms about that?
