In the aftermath of superstorm Sandy, which left dozens dead and countless homes destroyed, one Brazilian Playboy model has turned the debris into a photo shoot opportunity.
Nana Gouvêa has been slammed in her home country after images were posted online showing her posing on fallen trees and crushed cars.
The Rio De Janeiro native, who moved to New York shortly after Hurricane Irene struck last year, was also widely mocked on Twitter.
"Nana Gouvêa, the apple of the eye of the hurricane," Beth Moreno tweeted.
"Nana: the lady of the apocalypse," wrote another.
Memes mocking the model have already sprung up on various blogs and websites.
Among them, a photo-shopped image shows Gouvêa on the rooftop of a New York skyscraper, with a plane seemingly about to crash into it.
Others show the model superimposed into the scenes of famous disaster sites including Hiroshima and the sinking Titanic.
A Facebook page named Nana Gouvêa Em Desastres (Nana Gouvêa in Disasters) has also been set up in the last few hours, in honor of the 27-year-old's post-hurricane antics.
The page has already received over 1300 fans, and features the following quote from an interview Gouvêa gave yesterday to Brazilian celebrity blog Ego:
"I love going through hurricanes with my love!" said Gouvêa.
"It's very romantic and today I will open a bottle of wine."
Gouvêa also told Ego that she had taken advantage of the hurricane to spend quality time with her music producer husband Carlos Keyes.
model, who had been cooped up in her apartment since Saturday.
According to the blog, the couple only ventured out yesterday to exercise at the gym and take the photos.
This is not the first time that Gouvêa has stirred up controversy.
Last Christmas, the model/actress posted a video of herself dancing around a Christmas tree in a skimpy outfit.
Some commentators reflected the sacrilegious nature of the clip, while many others requested dates with the actress.
