The UK has pulled Dakota Fanning’s perfume ad where she is modeling for Marc Jacobs’ latest fragrance. The ad has been out since June and they are now saying it is too “sexually provocative”. They made the decision to remove it after it received a total of four complaints!
Seventeen year old Dakota is simply wearing a little nude colored dress. The issue is they way she is holding the bottle and the placement of it. This ad is featured in many different magazines and newspapers across the UK. “Readers complained that the ad was “irresponsible” and portrayed the actress in “a sexualized manner.” Which was apparently enough for the Advertising Standards Authority to take action.” Neither Dakota Fanning or Marc Jacbos has yet to comment about the ad being banned.
Is this too sexy or is the UK being a bit extreme?
