Gisele Bündchen, the famous Brazilian Victoria’s Secret supermodel (and the highest paid one on Earth), recently appeared in advertisements for Swedish clothing chain H&M. But ads for the company’s Spring/Summer 2011 line were deemed too hot for Dubai, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Wait… too hot for the desert? It was first mentioned on fashion website La Moda Dubai. Bündchen’s images were altered by adding fake white t-shirts and tanks. (Which we’ve pictured here). You know, because the married, mother of one is a real sexual/political threat in long dresses, pants and, what the heck is that thing pictured above? A really ugly floral jumpsuit. The only thing we find offensive about these ads is how ugly the clothing is. I mean, white jeans? Really? Is it 1983? Most of these items couldn’t be pulled off by the majority of the women on the planet anyway. H&M’s ironically-named “Spring Awakening” apparently isn’t going to be the awakening of any Middle Eastern women, but a tool in further oppression. Considering how tame the images were to begin with, it only makes us wonder how many other things these countries ban. Quite a sad commentary on our times.
