Toss in HIV+ status and she'd be more than ok; she'd be a moral authority that demands respect.
Is it me or are some of us living in a world that makes no sense? I'm expecting to wake up one day soon and find the sun rising from the West.
Yeah...incredibly gorgeous woman and what a striking pose! But that knee - ugh. Looks like a shark bit a chunk out of when she was surfing a few years ago.
That might be the sunlight on the water reflecting back on her knee. I see a bit of the same pattern in her midriff.
Not so fast, outraged cancer groups...
Study: Many Sunscreens May Be Accelerating CancerMay 24, 2010
By Andrew Schneider
Almost half of the 500 most popular sunscreen products may actually increase the speed at which malignant cells develop and spread skin cancer because they contain vitamin A or its derivatives, according to an evaluation of those products released today.
AOL News also has learned through documents and interviews that the Food and Drug Administration has known of the potential danger for as long as a decade without alerting the public, which the FDA denies.
Yea, that’s an awkward reflection off the water onto her knee. I’m offended.
I have been saying for years that this is what would happen!
The freaking sun screens will be determined in the end to be more dangerous than the sun they were suppose to protect us from. Mark it down.
Jealous much? She’s got a healthy, lean, athletic, toned shape. It’s not like you can see her ribs or bones sticking out or anything. Having a flat stomach doesn’t make you anorexic, except I guess in a country growing more lazy, obese and undisciplined every day.
As cute as she is now, if that is not her natural color, then I would not go there.
Us European derivatives getting super tans makes us look really old when we are middle aged. I know several of these people who were the lust of the town in their early 30’s, then they hit their 40’s, and they now look like they are 90, in their late 50’s, early 60’s.
I just can’t understand how that extra crispy nutcase isn’t in an asylum. She literally looks insane. Poor child.
As for the model..she’s lovely.
“The model in the swimwear campaign is called Isabeli Fontana and she is Brazilian, which means that she has a darker skin tone than most Europeans,”
Whatever...her breasts look fake, too.
I’m not a fan of tanning but she looks hot and the cancer people need to take a chill pill. And corporate wusses need to grow a spine.
