A suggestive ad featuring Dakota Fanning holding a phallic-shaped bottle of Oh Lola! perfume by Marc Jacobs between her legs has been banned in the United Kingdom by the Advertising Standards Authority because they say that although Dakota is 17, “We considered she looked under the age of 16. We considered that the length of her dress, her leg and position of the perfume bottle drew attention to her sexuality. Because of that, along with her appearance, we considered the ad could be seen to sexualise a child.” Marc Jacobs admitted he used Dakota in the ads because “I knew she could be this contemporary Lolita, seductive yet sweet.” Dakota and her 13-year-old sister Elle Fanning are managed by their mother, Joy. People are questioning whether Joy is a responsible mother, as both girls just posed for Terry Richardson, whose work has been called pornography and/or soft porn by critics. He has admitted that his sexually explicit photo shoots featuring young models often end up with the girls performing sex acts on him. He said in one interview, “I don’t think I’m a sex addict, but I do have issues.” Joy was first criticized for her parenting skills in 2007, when an online petition demanding the arrest of Joy and the girls’ agent, Cindy Osbrink, circulated, because Dakota, then 12, was allowed to enact a sexually explicit rape scene in the movie Hounddog.
