I Thought, I Thought I Saw Calvin Klein‘s Forbidden Ad! I did, I did!
Calvin Klein ad
Calvin Klein’s newest jeans campaign starring Lara Stone has been banned in Australia. The authorities banned the ad because it was “suggestive of violence and rape”.
Lara Stone is the face of the designer label. In one of the CK ads she can be seen posing with three half naked male models. The supermodel rested her head on the lap of one man, while she was straddled by another.
“The Board considered that whilst the act depicted could be consensual, the overall impact and most likely impression is that the scene is suggestive of violence and rape. The Board considered that the image was demeaning to women by suggesting that she is a plaything of these men. It also demeans men by implying sexualised violence against women”, a spokesman from the Advertising Standards Bureau said.
