Controversy around Donna Karan's Ad with Brazilian model Adriana Lima and Haitians
This a a ad that did not seat well with many people. As you are looking at this ad for Donna Karan that is getting ready to hit the world for her spring 2012 season, you will observe the beautiful and sexy Brazilian model Adriana Lima posing in a seductive way. Two young Haitian men are seen in the background.
The reaction of many people following the apparition of the image is that it is of poor taste. Showing Donna Karan's Ad with Adriana Lima shows glamour; but at the same time it shows suffering in the faces of Haiti, a country that has been going through a major earthquake and where many people are still suffering.
Donna Karan's Ad was inspired by the work of famous Haitian artist, Philippe Dodard and photographed by Russell James
