Considered too steamy for its underage model, Dakota Fanning, a Marc Jacobs fragrance ad has been banned in the UK. The ad features 17-year-old Fanning in a short, flesh-colored dress with a big bottle of perfume (appropriately titled "Oh, Lola!") between her legs ? a pose which the British Advertising Standards Authority labeled "sexualizing a child." Marc Jacobs isn't the only one to be cracked down upon by the UK Authority; YSL's Opium perfume was nixed recently for a supposed promotion of drug use, and Axe body fragrance for over-sexualization ? though we wouldn't mind seeing less of that one.
