here is the Dolce & Gabbana
A CONTROVERSIAL ad by fashion designers Dolce and Gabbana suggesting gang rape has been banned from Italian publications

freerepublic.com

I just think it's a really sex-charged ad, not worth banning


Dolce & Gabbana
tribute to the fake Puma ad
freerepublic.com

the other junky ad

buzzworthy.mtv.com




strangecosmos.com

and the old ads that are sexist

The more I look at the Sisley ad, the more I think that the word "fashioin" wasn't mispelled.

the sexist ads are offensive but the D&G ones are completely fine

^that's not true, there's many sexy ads that aren't innapropriated/offensive. one example: Eva Mendes for CK.

WOW imagine seen that in a billboard?

how about that ad by Gucci the one with the Carmen Kass's G shot, so many seem offended.
vogue.co.uk

or the Opium one with Sophie Dahl naked "which became the most complained about ad in the ASA's history"
vogue.co.uk


I find those ad by American Apparel more offensive/creepier.
nowpublic.com

it actually says "Gee, I Wonder Why Women Get Raped?"

Please tell me that the "Gee, I wonder why women get raped" is a tagging.

Wasn't it Louise Pedersen in that Gucci ad, and Carmen got the credit because she was the more famous face of the campaign, so people presumed the shaved frontage also belonged to her?

I have no problem with that YSL ad, it's an homage to a famous shot of the designer himself, and it ran in some magazines. Naked women are the wallpaper of life, so why not see naked men as well?

I think sex-charged ads are offensive. Again, it's a way for the media to portray such sexual images as okay and acceptable. You can convince consumers to buy your product with sex but not so provocatively.

It actually looks like it is a part of the ad, not a tagging, IMO.

Those retro ads are just ...I know there was a picture on FailBlog that reminds me of those ads where there was a tag on a pair of jeans that had the care instructions, and then "Or give it to your wife-it's her job".
