d&g step down

d&g step down

>>  Dolce & Gabbana announced yesterday that they were pulling this Spring 2007 ad from print.  The reason?  Because it was drawing criticism for condoning violence against women.  The whole thing seems a little bit fishy to me -- this image seems pretty typical D&G fare, so I'm slightly confused about why they decided to step down now. 
And besides, where would fashion be if it didn't push a few buttons here and there?  We sure wouldn't have any of Helmut Newton's iconic images,  famous (or infamous, whichever you prefer) for being threaded with themes of S&M and female fetishism.  Not that I'm really going to compare this ad to a Newton shot (sacrilege!), but you catch my drift.
