Here is Vogue's Editor-At-Large's Tasteless Instagram Post

It's another demonstration of how out-of-touch the luxurious end of the fashion industry can be with reality.

Here is Vogue's Editor-At-Large's Tasteless Instagram Post

Paris Fashion Week is just wrapping up and, as attendees of the shows make their way around the city via luxury cars wearing luxury outfits, it's easy to forget that, you know, not everyone is so fortunate.

Well, US Vogue editor-at-large Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, who happens to be a German princess, reminded us all of the divide between the rich and poor in a really insensitive way, when she posted this photo, of a homeless person reading Vogue to her Instagram account:

The caption read: "Paris is full of surprises...and @voguemagazine readers in unexpected places"

Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis copped so much criticism on her Instagram that she removed the post, and Vogue have not responded to Jezebel's requests for comment.
