He's not the only one in the family with designer genes, ;) his sister princess Madeleine did her internships at Lowe Brindfors and Sandell Sandberg last year. Lets not forget his fathers uncle, Sigvard Bernadotte who designed for Bang & Olufsen and the swirly M logo for Marabou.
Izvestia writes that this ad, from the Russian Finance magazine was banned with immediate effect in Moscow. The poster company had to tear down a 100 posters overnight after receiving a stern letter from Igor Presnyakov, chairman of the Moscow Committee for advertising and information.
Igor (and probably anyone else who saw it) thought the image depicted a sex scene, while the magazines publisher said: "I thought the currencies were dancing on our poster". A cossack dance, maybe....
Sloggi has finally gone one butt too far - Triumph the brand behind Sloggi, has been asked by the French advertising sector association to withdraw a billboard campaign for its Sloggi range, which has been widely condemned as offensive to women. The image depicts ladies in underwear and little else posing around poles in starstudded spotligts, reminiscent of a striptease stage.

Another inane ad bites the dust. When Terra footwear started selling their workboots with sexy images and 'adult films' on their website, they crossed the wrong bootclad women. The Manitoba Federation of Labour, which has more than 95,000 members, threatened a boycott against Terra over the ads. Canadian Auto Workers Local 444's women's committee wasn't marching far behind. The CAW, which at 250,000 members is one of the largest trade unions in Canada, began a campaign against Terra Footwear this week. Union leaders called and e-mailed the company and others with which it does business and began organizing demonstrations at stores where Terra products are sold, they also called their MP's demanding they pressure the firm to pull its ads or cancel Terra's contracts to supply boots to the Canadian military.
The ads, one depicted above with a scantily clad woman frolicking with her boots and blowtorch, has to be removed from over 600 poster sites across Canada. They've already removed the campaign from the Terra website.
"Hell hath no fury like a woman enraged by sexist advertising," said Shari Graydon, past president of MediaWatch, a Canadian media watchdog that looks to eliminate sexism in advertising.
