Yikes: This Cara Delevingne Ad Just Got Banned

Tom Ford's Black Orchid Fragrance ($112) billboard featuring Cara Delevingne has been banned from being present within 100 meters of schools in the UK. Why? The top model is shown naked in a bath (predictably surrounded by floating orchids) leaving very little to the imagination. Though critics attempted to have the ad removed completely, the Advertising Standards Authority put a stop to that, citing it was “unlikely to cause serious offence.”

What do you think of the ad? If you had kids would you care if this billboard were near their school? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below, and visit our photo gallery for plenty of non-banned Delevingne looks!
