This is gross. A gross miscarriage of free speech, that is! Gotcha. No, really…the Advertising Standards Authority in Great Britain deemed this rather bland Marc Jacobs ad inappropriate. Because Fanning is 17. And the bottle is between her legs. You need to unstiffen your upper lips a bit, UK.

Shut up. View List ›
