Lara Stone in Controversial Calvin Klein Billboard

New Yorkers are not happy with Calvin Klein’s latest New York Street billboard.

The half naked Dutch supermodel Lara Stone appears not only in nothing but underwear in the latest Calvin Klein billboard, but also spells the word ‘fuck’. Especially the F word is causing controversy in the streets of lower Manhattan.

On the billboard the model posses in front of a table and only a small part can be seen. According to CBS, the table leg forms the letter “F.” Add that to the “U” of Stone’s bikini bottom and the “CK” of the CK One logo, and you get a naughty word.

In the 80s Calvin Klein was already discredited by a controversial TV commercial in which a 15-year-old Brooke Shields: “Nothing comes between me and my Calvins.”

Not so long ago in Australia a “sexually graphic” CK billboard was leveled to the ground after the Advertising Standards Bureau ruled that it was ‘suggestive of violence and rape’.
