Marc Jacobs just can’t get enough of Dakota Fanning.
The 17-year-old actress, who starred in the designer’s apparel ads way back when she was just 12, is striking a pose again for Jacobs as the face of his new Oh, Lola! fragrance. And a sneak peek of the ad by Women’s Wear Daily reveals Dakota in a provocative position that’s signature M.J.
Longtime Marc Jacobs collaborator Juergen Teller shot Dakota in Los Angeles, chilling out in a sweet, scalloped, polka-dot dress set against a girly pink backdrop, with a big, rose-topped bottle of Oh, Lola! between her legs.
Jacobs spilled to WWD that the Twilight star was a natural fit for the campaign: “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.” Dakota, meanwhile, gushed that she was “so humbled by the offer and said yes immediately.”
She isn’t the first celeb to front Marc Jacobs’ ads. Victoria Beckham, Winona Ryder and Sofia Coppola have posed for Jacob’s ads.
I don’t think this picture is…appropriate but these days everything is provocative with young actresses. They are in their teens going on their twenties. I just don’t see why the bottle has to be in between her legs, it’s not necessary and I get it’s to make a splash and ads can’t be boring and fashion is known to have controversial ads however in this case, if an older model/actress was to pose like that, it wouldn’t matter but the girl just turned 17 years old and to me the picture gives a sexual weird type of message for a young girl. Do you think I am wrong? I’d love to know what your thoughts are.
