    It was only a matter of time before Selena Gomez officially posed for Louis Vuitton’s high fashion lens. After all, the star has been flirting with the role for a while: In March she sat front row at the brand’s fall 2016 show at Paris Fashion Week, where she spent quality time with now-fellow campaign starlets like Alicia Vikander, Michelle Williams, and Léa Seydoux.

    “Designer Vagina” Ad Banned for Promoting Negative Body Image

    In the United Kingdom, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) is an independent watchdog that keeps tabs on the appropriateness of campaigns, with do-gooders filing complaints which are then subsequently investigated by the organization. Most recently, Miley Cyrus’s MAC Viva Glam campaign was under review, with some concerned about the singer’s legs raised in the air drawing attention to her crotch. Over the past few years, the Brit witch hunters of advertising have cited L'Oreal, Dior, Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, and more for everything from overly “sexually suggestive poses” to “excessive airbrushing.” In the United States, and other countries around the world, the same pictures are promoted without histrionics minus some social media outcry thanks, in part, to the constitution and freedom of speech.

    Perry Ellis Sued for Racist and Homophobic Ad Casting

    Except in the case of Perry Ellis, the lack of diversity was by design, according to a lawsuit.  In court documents filed in Manhattan Federal Court on Tuesday and obtained by the Guardian, Joseph Cook alleges that chief operating officer and president Oscar Feldenkreis made statements such as “no blacks in my ads” or “anyone who looked too gay.” Cook, president of Original Penguin’s wholesale division, is gay himself and claims that he was “forced to endure highly offensive homophobic, racial, and ethnic slurs” from Feldenkreis, the son of current chief executive officer George Feldenkreis.  “I am deeply saddened as a gay man and someone who has always been proud of who I am no matter my color or sexual orientation that a company executive could be so intolerant of others,” Cook said in a statement released through his attorney, Douglas Wigdor. Oscar Feldenkreis, whose daughter also works at the company as the brand director of Original Penguin, supposedly told Cook repeatedly, “My dad doesn’t like having black guys in his ads, or anyone who looks too gay.” He’s also set to take over his father’s position next year.

Rumor has it the Italian brand is hoping their current campaign star, DJ Calvin Harris, will bring his mega-star girlfriend Taylor Swift to his next shoot—and not just to watch.  According to the Daily Star, the couple have been offered $10 million to pose together, in their skivvies. “Taylor and Calvin are the hottest thing on the planet right now. Calvin’s adverts have done really well and helped the brand reach a different audience,” a source said. “The Taylor offer is initially around the $10 million mark, but that sum could then triple with global promotion if the campaign is successful.” Armani reportedly wants to emulate the 2009 success of David and Victoria Beckham’s campaign.

    Photos by Jade Beall via The Militant Baker Lane Bryant recently released its lingerie campaign to much fanfare. She gathered a group of women—not models—to pose in a reinterpretation of #ImNoAngel called #EmpowerALLBodies.   Along with the photo shoot, Baker wrote an open letter to Linda Heasley, Lane Bryant’s CEO, asking for more. “ I question how empowering these images can be for “all women,”” she asked. It’s a powerful message that settles into the core of those who aren’t represented.” She went on to explain that the ads “backfired” in their attempt to empower plus size women and excluded those Lane Bryant was trying to reach.
