Australia is not so happy with this Calvin Klein ad. The ad, featuring one of our favorite models Lara Stone, being restrained by a bunch of hunky dudes. While this may be a fantasy for us, Australian officials think that it promotes violence and rape towards women. My, oh my. Obviously, we'd never promote that sort of behavior -- it's uncouth -- but we do think that people take things a little too seriously. It's just imagery, for goodness sake, and we happen to think it has a cool, gritty, sexy feel to it, very much in line with the brand's aesthetic.
