Alicia Keys re-creates 1970s Jamaica tourism poster


The model who posed for Jamaica’s eye-catching 1970s tourism poster has saluted soul star Alicia Keys for recreating her wet ‘red T-shirt’ pose for a new photo campaign.

Sintra Arunte Bronte inspired the Girl on Fire singer to get wet and pose in a see-through T-shirt with the word ‘Jamaica’ covering her breasts, and admits she is thrilled her 40-year-old poster, in which she bears a striking resemblance to the Grammy winner, is a talking point again.

She tells U.S. news website, “I feel honoured that she chose me as the person she would like to represent.”

Now in her 60s, Arunte Bronte was 27-years-old when she caught the eye of a photographer while on vacation in Jamaica, and he asked her to pose for him.
