Elle UK Readers Are #NotHappy with Pharrell; Rihanna’s Fragrance Campaign Restricted in U.K.
Elle UK Readers #NOTHappy with Pharrell: Will the fashion industry ever learn its lesson? In one of many PR blunders that have hit designers, stylists, and magazines over the years, Elle UK is catching rapid fire from its readers for persuading “Pharrell to trade his Vivienne Westwood mountie hat for a native American feather headdress for his best ever shoot,” according to original copy on the fashion glossy’s website, which has since been removed. Responding to the decision to treat a sacred Native American object as a fashion accessory, social media users have begun to show their disappointment with the “Happy” singer by utilizing the hashtag #NOThappy.

Rihanna’s Fragrance Campaign Restricted in U.K.: Is Instagram ruling England?

The ASA has deemed Rihanna's recent campaign for her Rouge fragrance—which depicts the singer covering her chest and posing nude—as “provocative” and “sexually suggestive.” “It’s not an outright ban,” an ASA spokeman said, emphasizing that restrictions have been placed on where the advertisement can appear, “but it’s about placing [the advert] a bit more sensitively.” [WWD]
