American Apparel Ad

American Apparel

Well, that's one way to catch everyone's attention!

American Apparel has done it again with their latest controversial advertisement, this one featuring a topless former-Muslim model from Bangladesh.

Maks was born in Dhaka, but the 22-year-old has lived in California ever since she moved to the United States with her family at the age of 4. She is currently a merchandiser for the retail giant.

The words "Made in Bangladesh" are printed across her chest and do little to cover up the model's breasts.

The ad comes on the heels of American Apparel featuring a 62-year-old model for their underwear line.

Earlier this month, a print campaign showing Jacky O'Shaughnessy was shown in ads proudly flaunting her bod in her skivvies.

And while O'Shaughnessy has been modeling with the clothing company since 2011, it was only until just recently that she was shown not fully clothed.

The Los Angeles-based chain also shook things up when they featured mannequins with pubic hair in their Lower East Side Manhattan store around Valentine's Day.

Dee Myles, American Apparel's District Visual Manager, claimed that the mannequins "bring rawness and newness to a holiday thought of as a romantic Hallmark exploiting the lust of Valentine's Day."

What a creative way to honor the holiday!
