Clippings: Lane Bryant’s Too-Sexy Ad Edition


- Lane Bryant created some sexy new ads and, to hear the company tell it, some networks just can't handle it. As Lane Bryant wrote on its Inside Curve blog, both ABC and Fox have been either restricted airtime, re-edited the commercial, or refused to run it altogether. As the Lane Bryant folks tell it, the reason for all the hooplah is the actual, honest-to-goodness cleavage these girls have. While the initial post appears to have been taken down, the cached version is still available. [Inside Curve via AdWeek]

- Curious to see and judge the ad for yourself? Be warned: There's cleavage. [YouTube]

- Speaking of plus-size, street style snapper Garance Dore is not a fan: "It's not such a good thing to show plus-size because it's not really physically healthy and not always flattering to fashion." [Vogue UK]

- Who are New York women "strangely bonded to"? Their waxers, apparently. (Sidebar: The best part of this article is where one beautician claims to have taught Gwyneth Paltrow how to embrace her inner beauty.) [New York Post]

- Turns out the person model-slash-designer Erin Wasson would most like to style is Britney Spears: "I'd love to pull out her hair extensions and fake lashes adn get her in her own skin for once -- something raw and beautiful." [Teen Vogue]

- The backlash against all the product placement in "Sex and the City 2" is really gaining momentum with the news that Hewlett-Packard has linked up with Warner Brothers around the fashionable film. [Media Decoder]
