Vogue dressed Karlie Kloss up as a Geisha for its Diversity issue

Karlie Kloss is in some hot water after dressing as a geisha for Vogue's March issue, the theme of which is literally *sighs* diversity.

However, Kloss' leaked photos, reportedly captured by Mikael Jansson with styling by Phyllis Posnick, seemed to suggest otherwise.

It's not the first time Kloss has been accused of appropriating a culture. For their latest issue, the magazine is "celebrating diversity" by featuring a Caucasian female in "yellowface" dressed as a Japanese Geisha.

After facing fierce backlash on Twitter, model Karlie has apologised for the photos.

"My goal is, and always will be, to empower and inspire women", she said. She then pledged to "ensure my future shoots and projects reflect that mission".

As seen in the photos above, Kloss's blond hair is jet black and her skin is powdered white as she poses in Japan's Ise-Shima National Park.

Officials ID bodies found near Deer Creek outside Delphi
It is unclear who discovered the bodies, but they were discovered on Tuesday about half a mile from the Monon High Bridge . Multiple agencies joined the search for the girls on Monday and Tuesday including a dog unit and a dive team.

In 2012, Kloss was forced to issue a similar mea culpa after walking the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway while wearing a Native American-inspired headdress with high-heel moccasins and fringe leather bra and panties.

Karlie took to Twitter to issue an apology to those she offended.

The controversial spread was likely an homage to Richard Avedon's shoot of German model Veruschka von Lehndorff that appeared in Vogue in 1966.

Vogue magazine thought they were doing that when they featured attractive models on the cover of their recent Diverse issue. The lingerie company apologized and did not include the outfit in the show's television broadcast.

"I chose to pose like that.no one told me to do anything", Graham responded to a fan on Instagram, who questioned why Vogue made her cover her leg.
