    :hmm: While I appreciate the beauty of the clothes and inspiration, I don't think it was necessary to bring the full headdress into it. I see why Native Americans are upset, as it appropriates a sacred aspect of their culture. However, Karl did appear to do so with correct reverence and did not appear to intend to demean.

    I agree with you - he didn't intend it to be disrespectful. I think to get offended is slightly ridiculous, as art many times has used, from different cultures, religious iconography and cultural symbols. It especially is ridiculous because Karl's intent really wasn't to demean at all - it really annoys me when people get hypersensitive.

    I like the bottom picture, however that top picture, maybe it is just the draping or something but she looks terrible (chunky and shapeless).
