YSL Opium Ad Named Most Offensive

YSL's Advertising Complaints, Shopbop's Shaded View, and Kim France's Life as a Blogger



Those stories and more in our daily news roundup.

  • Sophie Dahl's 2001 ad for Yves Saint Laurent's fragrance Opium has been named the eighth most offensive ad of all time by the British Advertising Standards Authority. The ASA agreed with some 948 complaints about the image of Dahl's naked body when the ad was released, saying that it was "sexually suggestive and, in an untargeted medium, likely to cause widespread offense." [Vogue UK]

  • Kim France, the founder and former editor in chief of Lucky who started a blog called Girls of a Certain Age in December 2011, says she's not exactly comfortable with her new job description yet. "It feels very strange to me, the notion of people asking me what I do for a living, and at 48 to say, 'I'm a blogger.'" [The New York Times]

  • Shopbop has added a feature that allows shoppers to look at sunglasses from all angles. Dragging your cursor across the screen turns the head of a model wearing dark lenses from Elizabeth and James, Matthew Williamson, and Rag & Bone, to name a few. [Shopbop]

  • Tommy Hilfiger says he's always looked up to Karl Lagerfeld as a designer, who told him that he innovated Chanel by "looking at Coco Chanel's archives" and "making all of her designs relevant for today," he said. "So I wasn't doing anything dissimilar by taking all the American classics and making them relevant for today." [Style.com]
