    Elle Macpherson's Lingerie Ad Banned
    Wed Mar 3, 1:31 PM ET


    LONDON - An ad for supermodel Elle Macpherson's lingerie line has been banned after regulators received a complaint from the public that the model in the ad appeared to be masturbating.


    The Advertising Standards Authority said Wednesday it had ruled that the ad by Bendon UK Ltd. for its range of Elle Macpherson Intimates was offensive and couldn't be repeated.


    The complaint was about an ad in Vogue magazine that showed a model wearing a bra and panties, and her thumbs were hooked inside the panties. The image was framed as if shot through a keyhole, and the model's head was not visible.


    Bendon UK said the ad was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock (news)'s film "Rear Window," showing a moment that was "feminine, luxurious and stylized." Vogue argued that the image was "beautiful with no disturbing undertones."


    The Advertising Standards Authority ordered Bendon UK to consult with the agency before doing any more advertising.

    Some people in Britain have dirty minds, I'm ashamed.

      Sure that looks like it.

      No doubt =]
      When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

        "The image was framed as if shot through a keyhole, and the model's head was not visible. "

        this seems like an ad more men would respect.
        kinda strange this ad would be pulled when just some wks ago after the super bowl fiasco they had people in england saying "what's the big deal?" maybe that weird british guy can help me understand that one.

          What a body. . .very nice.

          I think that it should be against the law to ban such a peice of artistic perfection.
