People think the publication should have chosen Indian models for the photoshoot.

Vogue India is facing backlash online following their decision to feature Kim Kardashian as their new cover model.

The publication chose the reality TV star as the face of their March 2018 - a choice which was met with severe critique soon after the images were released.

Kim can be seen laying on a bed of roses wearing a low cut black dress, before donning a striking red gown. In another image, the mother-of three appears naked with a dress draped over her chest.

However, it was the image of Kim wearing a lehenga - a traditional Indian skirt - that appeared to enrage some readers.

People took to Twitter to express their disappointment that Vogue had chosen to feature a non-Indian model on the cover.

"India's vogue should embrace and feature their own south Asian women instead of choosing someone from pop culture," wrote one user.

Many were also quick to point out that Kim's half-sister, Kendall Jenner, faced similar backlash after appearing on Vogue India's 10th Anniversary cover last year.

Both Kim and Vogue India are yet to respond to the backlash.

Meanwhile, Kim recently unveiled the first image of her daughter Chicago, her third child with rapper Kanye West.
