Swedish cheap-and-chic fashion giant H&M on Thursday apologized over a swimwear campaign featuring a deeply tanned model that sparked outrage among cancer groups.

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, an H&M representative told The Local.
For goodness sake you’d think they showed her smoking.
Dang it, I need some cheap thrills! Where are the bikini pictures?
Lord knows they would be seen as chic and trendy if this were two tan Guys in an embrace.
Or, it would also be okay if this girl were a “trans-gendered” person who had a sex change operation.
For goodness sake youd think they showed her smoking.
“Too tan” is the new “Bourgeoisie”. Just like the “fatties” that the lefties are squawking about.
It’s funny, tho. Look at “Little Kim” of the Norks. He embodies everything the Libtards embrace.
Hey whiners.....she’s hot. Get over it. STFU. Bye.
This looks like a job for the Swedish Bikini Team.
I’m outraged by all of the outrage today. It’s outrageous.
I am more afraid of the chemicals in sun screen than I am of the freaking SUN!
Good grief! do these people think we evolved underground? the sun is GOOD for you!
Can you get it much? sure... and you can drink to much water too! ANYTHING taken to an extreme can be bad. But lets use our brains before we all start running from the sun screaming and smearing chemicals made with who the heck knows what all over us !
(Geez, I’m showing my age...)
What’s the difference between a fort and a fortress? A fortress has breastworks.
But that’s not as bad as..... when did the mags start referring to a woman’s bosom as her “rack”? That sounds so harsh and unfeminine.
Oh, for an earlier time. But you’re right, that Brazilian model is all angles except for her.... what? Enhanced Winnebagos?
Women were softer then....ideals to be admired....beauty inspired worship, not cold lust....not much time left, glad I’m married to the most beautiful woman in the world....she thinks I’m a romantic old fool...oh, well.
what’s wrong with her knee?
LOL! Just think of the outrage that George Hamilton must cause.
There’s a knee in that picture?
either that or the elephant man got a tan and is photo bombing
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.
