The more controversial you are the better publicity you are going to get .

They all have completely grown out pubic hair. The company is known for the fact that they just love to be shocking with their adverts but now they apparently gained to show the real nature and start to build up the new trend…“American Apparel has always been a company that celebrates natural beauty,” especially after celebrities…
