Apologizing for dressing up as a geisha for ‘Vogue’ magazine

 

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. In addition, many Japanese people encourage foreign women to wear kimono—Some places in Japan offer free train/bus tickets to foreigners wearing kimono.—They looooove a freak show. (⊙_◎)

Japanese cuisine’s famously poisonous Fugu/Blowfish (see right) is celebrated as Fugu Day today, February 9th.

Called Fugu no Hi (ふぐの日), the name is pun from the combination of 2 (fu) and 9 (kyu which is close enough to gu).
