Karlie Kloss apologizes after dressing up as a geisha for latest ‘Vogue’ issue celebrating diversity
Style.Mic. | February 15, 2017
There’s no need to apologize about the latest issue of Vogue magazine—The only “apologizing” that is needed is for crappy hairstyling and white makeup. She’s not even wearing real kimono but rather Japanese designers’ reimagined designs of kimono.

And, the proliferation of loose-character monsters in Hokkaido, the north island of Japan has been remarkable.
Creepy organism that is reflected with a blank expression on one’s face next to the first place of Monbemon. This is just as it is seen, is your local character of Hakodate, Hokkaido, which was the squid in the model. But now that call themselves the “alien”, not just a squid. They are invaders who came from outer space in order to my thing Hakodate, full stomach and crawling, waged attractions us and fight day and night, such as trying to protect the city, “Tawarobo” and “air fortress Goryokaku” of Hakodate … … Well, I’m sorry.
