Dakota Fanning’s Marc Jacobs ad banned in UK

HollywoodNews.com: Dakota Fanning may be a role model for many young women, but her new fragrance ad for Marc Jacobs has some controversy stirring up.

The United Kingdom’s Advertising Standards Authority has reportedly banned her latest ad for Jacobs as it is believed to be too risque for a minor, states UsMagazine.com.

“We considered that the length of her dress, her leg and position of the perfume bottle drew attention to her sexuality,” the group said about her dress being short and the bottle resting between her legs.

The group then decided that the ad does sexualize a child and is not appropriate.

Do you think the ad is inappropriate?

    Using Lolita references and a young girl with a phallic object in her crotch is totally unacceptable in today’s world of rampant sexual perversion and paedophilia. Dakota is supposedly an intelligent girl and serious about her acting, so can she really believe doing seedy ad campaigns (with obviously tenth-rate photographers) will enhance her career prospects? Not to mention all her charity work, much of it with children, that surely relies on her supposed status as a sensible and decent young woman. Regardless of what Dakota thought about this (and I suspect she is just another teenage girl with rampaging hormones who wants to appear mature and attractive) her advisers should have sensed controversy and steered her away. Jacobs of course will be laughing all the way to the bank, with publicity that money can’t buy. There is only one word to sum this up – exploitation.
