Dakota Fanning Pushes Limits in 'Lolita' Photo Shoot
By TheImproper, June 14th, 2011

Dakota Fanning is pushing the limits in a new ad for designer Marc Jacobs. It shows the 17-year-old in a provocative pose, playing off the scandalous 1950s novel “Lolita.”

The book by Vladimir Nabokov is about an older man’s affair with an underage teen that starts when she is 12-years-old.

Fanning is still considered a minor in most states, raising legal questions about whether the photo could be construed as child pornography.

The actress is certainly posed in a sexually charged way. She holds a flask of Jacobs’ perfume brand, Oh, Lola!, between her legs like a phallus, tilted ever so slightly toward her vagina.

“When we were speaking about who to use in the ads, I had recently seen “The Runaways,” he told WWD magazine, referring to Fanning’s movie about Joan Jett’searly ’70s band.

“I knew she could be this contemporary Lolita, seductive yet sweet,” he added.
