The Italian Advertising Institute has banned an ad by Tom Ford depicting a man's finger in a model's mouth, claiming the ad was "exually implicit" and of "explicit and provocative character." How can you be implicit and explicit at the same time? Anyway, the agency failed to condemn the ad featuring a naked woman grabbing the crotch of a man in a suit. She was just checking the quality of the fabric. [Radar]

Fashion is obsessed with cartoons! Louis Vuitton's Richard Prince and Takashi Murakami collaborations have sparked cartoon mania for everyone from the GAP to DKNY. Now, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute is jumping into the fray with a special exhibit. [NYT]

Carson Kressley, Bravo's most annoying fashion queen, named his horse Page Six. And suprise, Page Six printed the story. Lame PR stunt or is Kressley that ridiculous? [Page Six]

Some bloggers turn to their readers to figure out their next fashion move. Because their boyfriends won't tell them those jeans make their ass look huge. [NYT]
