Karlie Kloss Nude Vogue Italia Photos Censored

Over the weekend, Karlie Kloss’ 16-page spread for Vogue Italia attracted attention for a whole range of reasons and now one of the images has been censored by the magazine itself.


The spread was initially highly-anticipated as it is the 19-year-old model’s first ever nude photoshoot. The aptly titled ‘Body By Kloss’ spread features artistic and undoubtedly incredible images shot by the legendary Steven Meisel. In the images, Kloss is seen wearing large hats, stilettos and little else, showing off her almost unbelievably toned, long and slender body. 
Since it’s release, the images have had mixed reactions, with some calling Kloss the new ‘body’ (sorry Elle), some saying the Victoria’s Secret model looks ‘anorexic’ and ‘scary’ while others are pointing the finger at a bizarre photoshop job. 
Whatever the case may be, this particular image has caused enough of a stir on the Vogue Italia website to have it removed completely. 

 

The magazine and editor Franca Sozzani are no strangers to controversy. Earlier this year in another Steven Meisel shoot, a model was featured on the cover with a ridiculously tiny 13-inch waist. We are perplexed as to why it was this image of Kloss in particular that was deemed controversial enough to be removed when something that dramatic was deemed acceptable enough for a cover. It is yet to be discovered whether this really is what former ballerina Kloss’ body really looks like or if it’s a pretty serious photoshop job but if it is the latter, the mag would have had a pretty hard time photoshopping this video as well. 

 

What do you think? Is Karlie the new Elle or does this image promote an unhealthy body image?
