Vogue Italia Removes Controversial Karlie Kloss Photo From Website

American model Karlie Kloss is Vogue Italia's cover girl for the December 2011 issue, and also features in an editorial inside named 'Body by Kloss' (see it here). A preview of the editorial was recently published on Vogue Italia's website, but has since been taken down. Several blogs are reporting that the image in question might have been removed because it looked too photoshopped - something which Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani is firmly against, while others say it was taken down because the photo showed off Karlie's 'thinness' - something which Sozzani has also voiced concern over in the past. She recently added a "curvy" section to the Vogue Italia website, and gave the June 2011 cover to three plus-sized models, commenting at the time:  "Why should these women slim down? Many of the women who have a few extra kilos are especially beautiful and also more feminine". Too thin, badly photoshopped, or both?
