SAUDI ARABIA - FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY ISSUES

Whilst researching Vogue Saudi Arabia, I came across these 3 photographs which show how arabic countries photoshop their fashion imagery to cover any potential 'sexual' imagery. A social and cultural issue unlike European editions where nudity is common in a tasteful manner and there are no restraints on content/imagery.
"They may live in the desert, but apparently Gisele Bundchen is way too hot for the markets of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
The Gulf Cooperation Council decided the supermodel's H&M ads were too risque, so they added some white shirts to cover up her chest and arms."
