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

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.
