Fashion brand Marc Jacobs has never been one to shy away from provocative advertising.

In 2010 the designer himself stripped down and oiled up, covering himself with nothing but a strategically placed bottle of his new men’s fragrance. A year later the designer launched a campaign with an ad featuring young actress Dakota Fanning straddling an ‘Oh Lola’ perfume bottle. It was quickly was banned for being too racy.
