This Marc Jacobs fragrance ad, featuring 17 year-old Dakota Fanning, has been banned in Britain for "sexualizing a child." Agree? Disagree?

Um if it were just some unknown who didn't know who Marc Jacobs was then I'm not sure. But I'll bet my house that Dakota knows who Marc Jacobs is and wanted to do it. I don't see a problem.

I thought she was older than that. It seems strange to have a teenager advertise something geared to women.

She looks like she is a girl playing dress up or something.And what is with the pose.Could they not think of another way to pose her and another dress for her to show her true age.Because with that dress and pose like I said she looks like a little girl trying to play dress up.

Seriously. People get their panties in a twist over every little thing. She's 17, maybe not a legal adult but definitely not a "child." And it's a photo for perfume. She is covered. Who cares? Apparently not her or her parents.

 I don't see a problem with it. I have seen so many more inappropriate things. this is nothing. I personally think it's pretty boring and would not make me want to buy or even remember this perfume.
