Karlie Kloss - Karlie Kloss' Appearance Pulled From Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Producers behind the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show have pulled model Karlie Kloss' catwalk performance from their upcoming U.S. Tv special following complaints about her Native American-style headdress.

The beauty hit the runway last week (begs05Nov12) in a buckskin bikini, turquoise jewellery, and a towering feather headdress for the New York City taping, which will air in America on 4 December (12).

But leaked images of the 20 year old's look, designed to celebrate America's Thanksgiving holiday (22Nov12), have caused an uproar among the Native American community for its misrepresentation of their cultural attire, prompting executives to cut Kloss' controversial outfit from the broadcast.

A statement issued by bosses at lingerie firm Victoria's Secret reads, "We are sorry that the Native American 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."

And Kloss has echoed her Victoria's Secret bosses' sentiments - in a post on Twitter.com, she writes, "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."

The news comes just weeks after rockers No Doubt were forced to pull the music video for their latest track Looking Hot after frontwoman Gwen Stefani angered fans by wearing a similar Native American-style headdress.
