The Calvin Klein ad in question. Photo: Harley Weir for Calvin KleinThe Calvin Klein ad in question. Photo: Harley Weir for Calvin Klein

When Calvin Klein released the most recent advertisements for its spring 2016 global campaign, we were the first to admit that the brand pushed the envelope of provocativeness much further than what we've seen in the past. (The best way we can describe it is, uh, "insanely sexual.") And while the campaign has certainly garnered heavy attention and online traffic, one particular image faces criticism — as well as a request for removal from the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE).

The ad in question features Klara Kristin in what's recognized as an "upskirt" shot. (Women who travel on city public transport are disappointingly all too familiar with this situation.) According to the NCOSE, the image, shot by female photographer Harley Weir, continues to normalize and glamorize sexual harassment. Executive Director Dawn Hawkins has provided the following statement:

"Once again, Calvin Klein has used a depiction of sexual harassment or assault in its advertisements. The American fashion house has continued to stand by its most recent ad campaign, not-so-subtly entitled Erotica [Ed note: According to a spokesperson for Calvin Klein, there is no official "name" for this campaign], despite the backlash over its glamorized depiction of an "up-skirting" victim. Up-skirting is a growing trend of sexual harassment where pictures are taken up a woman's skirt without her knowledge, or without her consent. Not only is this activity a crime in many states like New York, Washington, Florida, and more, but it is also a disturbing breach of privacy and public trust. By normalizing and glamorizing this sexual harassment, Calvin Klein is sending a message that the experiences of real-life victims don't matter, and that it is okay for men to treat the woman standing next to them on the metro as available pornography whenever they so choose. We are calling on Calvin Klein to not only remove this offensive ad, but also to suspend its Erotica advertisement campaign, and to issue an apology to victims of sexual harassment or assault everywhere."

We reached out to representatives for Calvin Klein for comment on this matter. NCOSE has also started a petition in hopes that the American fashion house will remove the campaign and issue an apology.

Update, 5/13/16: Fashion photographer Harley Weir, who shot the campaign, told the Associated Press on Thursday that she's "really happy" with her work. As for everyone's reactions, "I love it," she said.

If you thought fashion's fascination with famous offspring was limited to ladies, think again: Dylan Jagger Lee, son of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee is the latest celebrity kid to nab industry attention.

Of course, it probably helps that he's already served as muse to Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent, starring in a video campaign for the brand just last February. Still, Nylon tapped Lee to star in his own editorial in the May issue, and in the accompanying interview, he talks all about his famous parents. (Apparently, Mötley Crüe songs were his lullabies and he's never seen an episode of "Baywatch.") It's also worth nothing that another celebrity offspring-turned-model, Anwar Hadid, has Nylon to thank for his first fashion spread as well, which was featured in the Oct. 2015 issue.

Daria Kobayashia Ritch shot Lee wearing — what else? — Saint Laurent in Venice Beach, and it's not hard to see why Next Models signed him: The kid is a natural. Check out the Peditorial below.

‘Pretty Little Liars’ star Shay Mitchell looks ready for summer on the May 2016 cover of FLARE Magazine. The actress wears a striped Stella McCartney top and pants with colorful hues and pleated detail. Inside the fashion glossy, Shay poses for Nino Munoz in even more designer looks from the likes of Fendi and Marni styled by Hayley Atkin. Shay’s look is finished with her hair in tousled waves and a radiant makeup look.

In her interview, she opens up about writing a book, Kim Kardashian’s naked selfie and more. “Kim is a grown woman, and she can make her own decisions,” Shay says about the infamous Instagram post. “I’m not about to judge her for her nude selfie. What I do have a problem with is young girls doing it for attention or to get more likes. They don’t realize it’s going to be on the Internet for all time.”

Shay also talks about editing social media photos. “Sure, I’m guilty of taking out a blemish here and there. And I’m also not afraid to tell people, ‘Oh, to get that one good photo, I took 5,000.’ These photos are going to be out there forever.”

On Tuesday night, Chloë Sevigny attended the premiere of her upcoming film "Love & Friendship," the 1790s period piece co-starring Kate Beckinsale. Always one to keep the red carpet interesting, Sevigny showed up in an evening ensemble that was very on brand for the fashion-loving actress. The multilayered georgette gown by Prada includes bell sleeves, bejeweled white cuffs and floral embroidery with crystals that make her outfit even more ethereal. We wouldn't be surprised if she actually floated across the red carpet.

But Sevigny's updo is what really pulls it all together. To show off her gown's embellished collar, hairstylist Blake Erik gave the actress milkmaid braids, which has been a popular choice for Sevigny lately — and we have the Instagram shots to prove it!
