Morning Quickies: Dakota Fanning Ad Banned For Being “Sexually Provocative”

The UK’s Advertising Standards Authority banned Marc Jacobs’ print ad starring Dakota Fanning holding a perfume bottle between her legs because the image of the 17-year-old actress is “sexually provocative.” The ASA said the Oh, Lola ad “could be seen to sexualize a child” and therefore is “irresponsible” and “likely to cause serious offense.”…

Marc Jacobs In Drag = A Scary Woman

Rarely do we come across a photo of a woman that scares the bejesus out of us. But this photo of Marc Jacobs in drag does the trick. If we were walking down the street and this woman was coming towards us, we’d cross the street. We’d fear she smelled like cat urine or worse,…

Dakota Fanning Poses With A Perfume Bottle Between Her Legs

I’m not usually one to clutch my pearls when a 17-year-old actress poses provocatively. But I know I’m not the only one who looks at Dakota Fanning at any age and always sees the little girl from “I Am Sam,” right? Here she is posing with Marc Jacobs’ Oh Lola — in a flower-shaped perfume…

Is Re-Releasing Collections Lazy Or Awesome?

So it would seem that the biggest trend in retailing since the designer collaboration is the re-release. In the past few weeks we’ve heard of three major brands doing replays of past collections.

Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs stayed up past their bedtimes last night (well, maybe just Anna) to talk about Fashion’s Night Out on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” The best part is when Jimmy asks Anna a bit about FNO, saying, “So the stores stay open and you have, like, sales?” To which Anna…

Quotable: Marc Jacobs Explains Why He Was Naked For Bang Ad

“I’m not Tom Ford in terms of the grooming and the knowledge of clothes and the precision and perfection of getting dressed. There’s nothing I can wear in this ad that isn’t going to look ridiculous. At one point, I tried jeans and a shirt, and it didn’t work. So then Juergen said, ‘Take off…
