Is the weight of models in advertisements subjective? Gucci says it is. That was after the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) banned a picture of a gaunt looking model in The UK.
While the regulator says the fashion house is irresponsible for depicting the unhealthily thin model in its latest campaign, Gucci says the model is slim but not unhealthily so.
The fashion house was ordered to remove the picture from the advert.
Is this the signal of things to come? Are advertisers being forced to become more responsible with their advertisements?
