Gucci's Paris Masters International Jumping Competition hosted the most costumes this side of Halloween one can expect to see for the rest of the year, with many competitors wearing mythical outfits or ancient costumes. The international media has taken exception, however, to Charlotte Casiraghi's choice of a Native American costume, decrying the move as racist for simply being Native.
Charlotte Casiraghi has become the latest public figure to spark anger for wearing a Native American costume.
The Monaco royal, 26, who chose the ensemble to participate in the Gucci-sponsored Paris Masters International Jumping Competition this weekend, was branded 'ignorant' and 'racist' by Tumblr users, many of whom appeared to be royal fans, judging by their usernames.
