Calvin Klein's raciest ad yet ires Aussies.
Which brings us to the recent hype about this now-censored billboard in Australia--the nation (slash continent)'s Advertising Standards Bureau has decided that model Lara Stone looks like she may be getting raped by three handsome, if expressionless young men and has demanded the billboard come down.
Do I buy it? No, not so much. To me, it looks like her blank stare matches the gentelmen's perfectly and they're all tangled up in a consensual orgy of equal disinterest.
Perhaps, however, I'm being callous and insensitive and should be more of a stodgy feminist about all this.
What are your thoughts?
