Are Marc Jacob’s new Lola ads featuring Dakota Fanning too provocative?

17-year-old Dakota Fanning is the new face of Marc Jacob’s fragrance Lola. (Lola is my absolute FAVORITE fragrance!)

She is completely clothed, but the ad is making many people upset. Could it have something to do with the flower resting on her lady bits?

At just 17, Dakota Fanning is still a year under the legal age of consent in her home state of California, but this trifling fact doesn’t seem to concern Marc Jacobs. The 48-year-old designer chose to place the teenager in a provocative pose – in homage to a 1950s novel about sex with an under age girl – to sell his new perfume, Oh, Lola!

Jacobs’ long-term collaborator Juergen Teller shot the Twilight star in Los Angeles wearing a girlish, pink scalloped polka dot dress. The background, is similarly juvenile – it’s monotone pastel pink compounding the innocence of the composition. But then a large bottle of the scent, featuring it’s signature rose-top has been placed provocatively in between the young starlet’s legs. The teenager clutches it as she tilts back lasciviously and stares intently into the camera.

New Yorker Jacobs admits that his intention was to portray the young woman as a re-boot of the tragic character in Vladimir Nabokov’s 1955 novel, Lolita, which tells the story of young girl’s sexual relationship with a much older man, who becomes her step-father.

He told Women’s Wear Daily: ‘When we were speaking about who to use in the ads, I had recently seen The Runaways…I knew she could be this contemporary Lolita, seductive yet sweet.’

The iconic novel tells the story of sexual predator Humbert Humbert and his exploitation of his ‘Lolita’ from the age of 12.

Ironically, this is the age at which Dakota first posed for the successful designer.

The pull of Jacobs is so strong that Fanning admitted she was: ‘humbled by the offer and said yes immediately.’ Dakota recently graduated from high school and joined her peers to receive her diploma. She attended classes at the $30,000 a year private school in North Hollywood and last year was crowned Homecoming Queen. But despite her Hollywood career Dakota insists that she is a down-to-earth normal teenager.

She said: ‘I have such a normal life when I’m not working… It’s just nice to be around people you care about and who know you best.’

What do you think? Are they inappropriate?

Fergie covers Allure, denies having plastic surgery

Fergie graces the July cover of Allure Magazine, and in the interview she denies having any plastic surgery done, despite the rumors. She says all she did was start parting her hair on the other side, and started wearing a brighter lipstick. Is that it? Is that all she’s worked one? I checked out a few older pictures of her, and nothing really stands out – maybe she’s telling the truth!

On having plastic surgery:

“I did two major drastic things, which is hair to the side—it was the first time—and the big neon lip. I wanted to try something different, and all of a sudden it was this big backlash. People were saying ‘It’s a fake Fergie.’ I heard about some ridiculous amount of money that I spent on my face, which I think is absolutely insane.”

Fergie on her age:

“I’m definitely young at heart, and I always will be, I’m just trying to age gracefully.”

On her body:

“I think people think that I’m pregnant sometimes because my weight fluctuates … My problem is my discipline. I see a Jack in the Box or a Del Taco, and I will impulsively want it. I’m a work in progress in that area … I gain and lose weight everywhere from the thighs up.”

On her relationship with Will.I.am:

“There is conflict, he’s very protective, and it drives me nuts because I do a lot of my best work, writing-wise, when I’m completely alone.”

On working so hard:

“I took a break to have a wedding. I’ve definitely committed some time this year to the Peas, but not as [much as] I have in previous years. I need balance in my life, and the guys understand that … I don’t think Will ever wants a break. We’re very different in that way.”

On her looks:

“I’ve learned to love my nose because it’s unique. It’s interesting, and it just makes me a little different.”

She tries to be a good person:

“I try to be a nice person. I’m not filled with saccharine. Do you want me to give you some bad things that I do? I’m obviously married, so I don’t sleep around. I guess I’ve tamed my ways a little bit, but I am 36.”

POLL: Do you prefer Sephora or Ulta?

I’m not going to lie…my very first visit to an Ulta happened about a week ago, and it was because I was shopping next door and decided I didn’t have the energy to drive out to the mall and hit Sephora like I normally do. The Ulta is so much closer to me, I don’t know what my problem was! I think I was a Sephora snob! I would drive twice as far to go to Sephora – and they don’t even carry Fekkai products anymore!

Once I finally did visit Ulta, I’m shocked I waited so long! It’s fantastic! I’ll probably never drive to the mall for Sephora ever again! The prices are better than Sephora – and they have MORE products!

I figured most women preferred one or the other – so which one do you prefer? Sephora or Ulta?
