Miranda Kerr Geisha looks are creating a controversy. Kerr is featured on the cover of Vogue Japan’s magazine 15th anniversary issue where she is dressed like a Geisha. Some find Kerr sexy as ever, others are asking why didn’t they look for a Japanese model instead and who came up with this cultural appropriation concept?

Miranda Kerr dressed as a Geisha is the cover girl of Vogue Japan November 2014 issue. Kerr who is immensely popular in the Asian country worked with famed photographer Mario Testino for Vogue Japan‘s magazine 15th anniversary issue.

Kerr, 31, is featured in the fashion bible in a series of looks inspired by Geisha, Manga and Samurai. On the cover of the mag, Kerr who was styled by Anna Dello Russo, is sporting an enormous Geisha bun and it appears that her features were photoshopped to look more Asian.

Orlando Bloom’s former wife looked beautiful in a multicolored jacket made of a gazillion patches of white, purple, green and pink of small pieces of clothes.

Under the bird-inspired jacket is a traditional Geisha dress, which is very colorful and features some amazing pattern, painting and embroidering.

Apparently, it can take up to two years to complete such an amazing creation. Inside the magazine, Kerr appears in Manga like dress with matching wig.

The Australian model looked stunning in a tiny blue dress that appeared to be plucked out the pages of a Japanese series.

The mother-of-one dumped her Geisha wig for a long silky wig with blue tip that matched her eyes.

For the third look, Kerr went Samurai. The supermodel sported a Japanese warrior look with tribal prints and bandage moccasins with a high bun.

Miranda Kerr’s Geisha outfit has started a heated debate on the internet.

Some asked, why is the mag celebrating the anniversary with some cultural appropriation? Few wondered, why didn’t the publication pick an Asian model for the cover?

Other commentators suggested that it might be time to break some of the world’s cultural barriers.
