our readers who were offended by the photograph featured on the front page of Sunday's Empire, we extend our sincere apology. Our decision to use the photo was based on its overall content. We knew from Empire staffers having been present at the Wearable Art Extravaganza that the model's outfit gave the appearance of revealing more than it actually did. We neglected to realize the obvious conclusion the photo would lead many of our readers to reach. Again, our apologies.
