Victoria's Secret's 'Sexy Little' Controversy

Posted Tuesday September 25, 2012 5:18 PM GMT

Most of the time, Candice Swanepoel is applauded for her sexy photo spreads, but this time around she’s on the receiving end of some pretty harsh comments.

The South African stunner is creating waves thanks to her Victoria’s Secret photo shoot in which she models the lingerie brand’s “Sexy Little Geisha” getup.

Part of the new “Go East” collection, the Geisha outfit has some folks complaining that the label is exploiting the Eastern culture to promote exotic sexual stereotypes.

An insider told press, "Considering the complicated history of geishas, repurposing the [geisha] 'look' for a major corporation to sell as role-playing lingerie seems a bit tasteless."
