In response to the backlash, Vogue  said

“we certainly did not mean to offend anyone by it.”
“The image is meant to be an update of the romantic Edwardian/Gibson Girl hair which suits the period feel of the Brock Collection, and also the big hair of the ’60s and the early ’70s, that puffed-out, teased-out look of those eras,” Vogue said in a statement obtained by E News. “We apologize if it came across differently than intended”
