    Karlie Kloss has apologised for taking part in a Japanese geisha-themed photoshoot for US Vogue magazine

    The 24-year-old model received backlash after images from the shoot, which show her dressed in traditional geisha clothing, appeared online and she took to social media to say sorry for "participating in a shoot that was not culturally sensitive".


    Karlie wrote: "These images appropriate a culture that is not my own and I am truly sorry for participating in a shoot that was not culturally sensitive.

    "My goal is, and always will be, to empower and inspire women. I will ensure my future shoots and projects reflect that mission."

    The shoot appears in the March issue of the magazine, which is also its Diversity issue.

    This is not the first time Karlie has been accused of cultural appropriation.

    In 2012, she was blasted for wearing a Native American headdress during the Victoria's Secret fashion show.

    Karlie said at the time: "I am deeply sorry if what I wore during the VS Show offended anyone. I support VS's decision to remove the outfit from the broadcast."

    Victoria's Secret said: "We are sorry that the American Indian headdress replica used in our recent fashion show has upset individuals. We sincerely apologise as we absolutely had no intention to offend anyone. Out of respect, we will not be including the outfit in any broadcast, marketing materials nor in any other way."
