Vogue is having some issues, literally!
Vogue’s style editor-at-large Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis is under heavy criticism after posting a picture on Instagram of a homeless woman reading the renowned magazine.
She captioned it, “Paris is full of surprises....and @voguemagazine readers even in unexpected corners!” the photo read, which has since been deleted.

Although Vogue is known to create trends and push the barrier of fashion, this specific photo was not one of those times.
Followers were calling the photo “cruel” and “tasteless.”

The poised editor, who was in Paris for fashion week, responded to the comments by asking “Why cruel? The person to me is as dignified as anyone else!”
Elisabeth is far from the gritty streets of Paris as she is formally known as a German princess and the daughter of Countess Gloria von Schönburg-Glauchau, known as 'Princess TNT, the dynamite socialite' and Johannes, 11th Prince of Thurn and Taxis. (Phew, that’s a mouthful!)
Style news website 'Fashionista', who first reported on the picture, called it the latest example of how “disturbingly out of touch” she is. (Ouch!)
"... The things she writes, both in Vogue and on social media, often straddle the line between entertaining/aspirational and disturbingly out of touch. On Saturday she crossed that line," the article said.
