Banned Substance

Yesterday YSLs new Belle d'Opium advert was banned from UK television as the ASA, Advertising Standards Authority, deemed it 'irresponsible' after 13 people complained. I personally think it's a beautiful advert, and French actress Melanie Thierry dancing was hypnotizing. YSL fought back saying the advert was 'not intended to make any reference to drug culture, but to promote the sensuality and seductive qualities of the fragrance in keeping with the Opium brand, which was launched by Yves Saint Laurent over 30 years ago.'

Kill Joys.
