After much criticism from opposition parties, former TV presenter and now a Japanese cabinet minister Renho, made a public apology for a photo shoot she did in Japan's parliament building for the local edition of Vogue.

The 42-year-old state minister for administrative reform, was featured in the November edition of Vogue Nippon which went on sale roughly a week ago. The popular minister posed near a marble staircase in a short white dress, cream jacket, and ankle-high boots, hand on one hip. Opposition lawmakers promptly denounced the shoot, calling it "inappropriate."

Renho, who is half-Taiwanese and goes by only one name, stressed to a news conference that she had gone through proper channels to set up the photo session, which took place in August when parliament was in recess.

"I frankly apologize if my action was inappropriate or caused concern, as that was not my intention," she said.
