The former Victoria's Secret model is under fire for sharing pictures of her modeling the Louis Vuitton artistic director's creations rather than focusing on the late designer in her tribute post.

AceShowbiz - Georgia Fowler's way of honoring Virgil Abloh has earned her some criticism online. The model, who is known for walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show several times in the past, caught the heat after posting a tribute to the late fashion designer on her Instagram page.

On November 28, the day Virgil's shocking death was confirmed, the New Zealand beauty took to her account to post a tribute to the Louis Vuitton artistic director. "You will be missed but not forgotten. A friend, and culture changer. We've lost a legend. Virgil Abloh forever," she wrote.

It's not her caption that has left her followers bewildered, but the photos that Georgia shared with the note. Rather than focusing on the Donda creative director, she posted several photos of her modeling his creations, including a very-revealing outfit that showed her nipples.

Those baffled by Georgia's post took to the comments section to express their dismay. " 'Hey, someone died. Let me make this remembrance all about me. See my nips?' " one person mocked her. Another sarcastically wrote, " 'Let me show how sad I am at this man's passing by posting ... 7 pics of myself.' "

A third asked, "Wait? This is a tribute to.....???" A fourth agreed, calling it odd, "Yes was a bit of an odd tribute." Someone else added, "Pretty sad when you post pics of yourself rather than the person who has just passed away. Screaming for attention are we?"

Virgil died on Sunday, November 28 after "valiantly" battling a rare, aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma, which he chose to keep private, for two years. He was only 41 years old. He left behind his wife Shannon Abloh, his children Lowe Abloh and Grey Abloh, his sister Edwina Abloh, and his parents Nee and Eunice Abloh.
