Dakota Fanning's Provocative Marc Jacobs Ads Banned in UK

Dakota Fanning isn't used to stirring up controversy.

That all changed on Tuesday when the United Kingdom's Advertising Standards Authority banned the 17-year-old's Marc Jacobs Oh Lola! ad, as they believe the image is too risque for a minor.

"We considered that the length of her dress, her leg and position of the perfume bottle drew attention to her sexuality," the ASA said in its ruling.

"Because of that, along with her appearance, we considered the ad could be seen to sexualize a child. We therefore concluded that the ad was irresponsible and was likely to cause serious offense."

Perfume maker Coty UK disputed the ASA's ruling, saying they had yet to receive any complaints about the ad in question. They also said the perfume bottle placed in between Fanning's legs was "provoking, but not indecent."
