This Calvin Klein ad has been banned in Australia, do you agree?

The Advertising Standards Bureau in Australia has heard complaints from sexual assault workers that images in the Calvin Klein Jeans campaign starring Lara Stone and a slew of hot men connote gang rape. And they have decided that the images, which appear on a few billboards across the country, should be taken down. They explained in the case that the image is demeaning to not only women, but MEN, too!

“The Board considered that whilst the act depicted could be consensual, the overall impact and most likely takeout is that the scene is suggestive of violence and rape,’’’ it said.

“The Board considered that the image was demeaning to women by suggesting that she is a plaything of these men. It also demeans men by implying sexualised violence against women.”

Psychologist Alison Grundy, who works with sexual assault victims, offered her two cents: “If we continue to subject future generations of young men to great barrages of aggressive, misogynist, over-sexualised and violent imagery in pornography, movies, computer games and advertising, we will continue to see the rates of sexual violence against women and children that continue unabated today. Or worse.” Calvin Klein isn’t quite Grand Theft Auto, but what do you think?

Introducing Calvin Klein Beauty

Calvin Klein beauty it marketed toward a more sophisticated and mature woman i.e. the 30 and up group. I am not sure I like being in the “mature” woman age group thought I had a few more years to hit that stage. Diane Kruger looks flawless in these ads maybe being “mature” isn’t so bad?

I love Calvin Klein Beauty it’s a very modern, clean and feminine scent. It starts with a great floral scent and the dry down leaves me with a creamy cedar note. A great addition to any fragrance collection.

The Calvin Klein Beauty Woman:

Authentic and true; she is accomplished and inspiring.

She believes in the power of self-knowledge, gained from the life she’s lived.

At once feminine and strong, she shapes her destiny with a charismatic allure and determined strength. Her true beauty, lies within.

The Fragrance:

Calvin Klein Beauty evokes the ultimate power of femininity and sophistication, while capturing the spirit of a woman who is beautiful from the inside out, with an aura that radiates.

A new interpretation of a lily – a neo-lily – is the heart and soul of Calvin Klein Beauty. A sophisticated flower that is the essence of femininity, the lily is also radiant and powerful.

Bringing the neo-lily to life, ambrette seeds enhance the spicy warmth, timeless jasmine elevates the floral signature, and a trail of cedarwood brings a vibrant and magnetic beauty to the drydown.

The Design:

The Calvin Klein Beauty bottle design features smooth feminine curves, set atop a luxurious glass base. A metallic silver ring encircles the glass, expressing a woman’s on going strength and confidence, while the golden liquid reflects her luminosity and inner-beauty. The metallic silver cap evokes the sculptural shapes fundamental to the Calvin Klein aesthetic.

The outer packaging is a sleek white, glossy carton featuring a vibrant silver halo, while the inner carton exudes a soft yellow glow revealing warmth, light and radiance. The carton incorporates shades of silver and white, signature Calvin Klein colors that are reminiscent of clean, spare shift dresses from the Calvin Klein Collection Runway Show.

New! Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua

 

 

I had the chance to try a sample of this on my hubby and I am loving the scent. With a top note of cucumber I wasn’t sure what I would think but the scents all blend together beautifully. A great fragrance for summer with the warm woodsy tones, definitely standing out as one of my fav new male fragrances. A very clean and sexy scent makes you want to take a little bite out of your man.
