Poll: Dakota Fanning Perfume Ad Banned In The UK — Is It Too Provocative?
A Marc Jacobs fragrance ad featuring 17-year-old child starlet Dakota Fanning was banned in Britain after complaints of the risqué ad being too “sexually provocative” for young teens.
The ad for “Oh, Lola!” perfume has been out since June, but was banned from further appearing in any U.K. publications again due to readers’ complaints that it portrayed her in “a sexualized manner,” so we want to know, is Dakota’s ad too provocative?
The print ad features the 17-year-old in a short, pale colored girly dress holding the bottle of Marc Jacobs “Oh, Lola” perfume in between her upper thighs, which sparked four complaints from readers in the U.K. for being too provocative.
The Advertising Standards Authority ruled the ad “was sexually provocative” and “drew attention to her sexuality” and banned it from appearing in any more publications.
