H&M Clothing is under fire after their series of swimsuit advertising for 2012 featured a model that has been referred to as “Too Dark”.
The popular Swedish clothing retailer’s new ad features beautiful Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana in several bright colored swimsuits which highlight her deep dark Brazilian skin.
The Swedish Cancer Society blasted H&M claiming the ads create a “deadly standard of beauty” that unduly influences young people to tan:
Every year, more people die in Sweden of (skin cancer) than in traffic accidents, and the main cause is too much sunning.
Regardless of how the H&M model got her tan, through sunning or a computer programme, the effect is the same: H&M tells us we should be very tan on the beach.
It is sad to write this, but H&M will through its latest advertising campaign not only sell more bathing suits but also contribute to more people dying from skin cancer.
Hold up… wait! So now being “too dark” is a problem? I guess that’s why they lighten African-american skin in advertising campaigns. You know… so as NOT to influence tanning. Right? I’m so confused right now.
I’m even more confused that H&M issued an APOLOGY! 😯

Time Magazine released the controversial cover above today asking Mom’s everywhere the question, “Are you Mom enough?”
The cover features a young mother breastfeeding what appears to be a 3-year-old son, standing on a chair in front of her.
While the image is quite provocative, it’s clearly meant to create dialogue about the touchy subject of breast feeding or more specifically “attachment parenting,” which has become an even touchier subject.
Time Magazine photographer Martin Schoeller photographed four families from across the country who practice this method of motherhood. Using religious images of the Madonna and Child as reference, Schoeller captured each mother breast-feeding her child or children.
