Is Dakota Fanning’s Marc Jacobs Ad Really Racy Enough To Be Banned?


Dakota Fanning’s modeling career has been blowing up over the past year, but at least one country wants to shield its eyes from her edgy editorials. The U.K. Ad Standards Authority just ruled that Dakota Fanning’s Marc Jacobs Oh Lola ad was too racy to run. According to the British organization, Dakota’s spot was inappropriate due to “the length of her dress, her leg and position of the perfume bottle” which “drew attention to her sexuality. Because of that, along with her appearance, we considered the ad could be seen to sexualize a child.” Call us liberal hippies (our moms already do!), but we honestly did not see a problem with this image … until we heard that it was controversial. Now the whole Lolita image is really skeeving us out. So what do you think? Does Dakota’s ad squeak you out too, or do you think the Brits are dropping their monocles over nothing?
