The 5 Most Controversial Fashion Ads Ever

#1: Calvin Klein Jeans Spring 2009 By Steven Meisel

Controversial Ad Campaigns


Calvin Klein‘s jeans commercial was banned from American TV back in 2009 for being too racy. The campaign featured models Natasha Poly, Anna Selezneva, Anna Jagodzinska, Edita Vilkeviciute and Naty Chabanenko posing alongside a handful of male models, which in some pictures, resembled screenshots from a sensual homemade movie. The commercial was even more raunchy with only select countries allowing the video to be broadcast. Both the print campaign and the commercial were captured by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer.
