H&M Censors Gisele For Middle East Ad Campaign
It appears as though images dispersed in the Gulf Cooperation Council countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates) have undergone digital altering to “better align the campaign with the sensibilities of the GCC market.” Basically, Gisele was given some undershirts, courtesy of a really poor Photoshop job. They look so fake! Also, it’s confusing to understand what exactly their standards are. In one photo, Gisele is made to look like she’s wearing a tank top underneath a sleeveless jumpsuit, while another photo actually adds sleeves to a tank top (perhaps to cover up an offending armpit).
