Christina Aguilera Fragrance Ad Dubbed Soft Porn

christina_aguilera_royal_desire.jpg

If the UK's Mail Online is calling the new Christina Aguilera fragrance commercial "soft-porn," they really ought to get out and surf the internet a bit more. Describing Aguilera in the ad as "showcasing her ample cleavage in a very low cut dress and writhing in a chair in ecstasy as she sprays the perfume across her chest," Mail Online thinks, "the singer's ad may be a bit too risque for her younger fans."

While Aguilera does reveal her ample assets in a low cut dress, her movement and demeanor are hardly anything close to soft porn. If so, porn has gone soft in its old age. She's hardly pushing the boundaries of decency as mail Online claims.

A slimmed down Kelly Osbourne, daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne, appears nearly nude in a new Goldfinger-inspired ad campaign for Sky+HD. Osbourne, 26, was painted a gold metallic color just as Shirley Eaton was for the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger.

Of her appearance in the campaign, Osbourne, who lost weight during her stint on Dancing With the Stars, said, "Since my weight loss I'm a lot more body confident in front of the camera. It's not just celebration for Sky+HD, but for me too."

- Naomi Capbell splays herself all over vehicle and gas pump for Dennis Basso's Autumn/Winter ad campaign.

Maria Lawson Lends Prodigious Cleavage to Miss Fit

Miss Fit, a small, UK-based company specializing in clothing, lingerie and swimwear for women lucky (or unlucky depending upon viewpoint) enough to possess DD cup or larger breasts, has signed a deal with the very curvaceous X Factor star Maria lawson.

Lawson is a perfect fit for Miss Fit. More than twice the size of a DD, Lawson straps herself into a 36JJ bra when she gets dressed in the morning.

Of her size, Lawson says, "I have grown to like my body. When I was younger I was very self-conscious and didn't like my boobs at all. I wished I could be like all the small dainty girls who could wear cute little tops! My mum always told me to be grateful for what I've got and now I am."

Lawson will model the brand as part of an upcoming PR push.

- We really like Lacta Chocolates previous work, especially the long-form video, but this new commercial we're not liking so much. Most likely because it is a commercial and not a more involved, long form video.

- Microsoft has redesigned its MSN Games channel and has added new advertising opportunities to reach casual gamers.

- Halloween webcam fun from Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co KG for RITTER SPORT Chocolate. Scary monster Halloween cards.

- If you haven't already heard, JLo has enlisted the help of her twin children to appear in a Gucci campaign aimed at raising money for UNICEF's schools in Africa.

- Mr. T has signed a deal with Gold Promise, a gold-buying service which aims to get people a better deal.

Adriana Lima Models $2 Million Bra For Victoria's Secret

ariana_lima_victorias_secret_2m.jpg

In a publicity stunt in New York, Adriana Lima slipped into $2 million diamond-studded Victoria's Secret bra and prance around a pink carpet for the onlooking public. In a blue dress especially designed to reveal the bra, Lima modeled the Damini-designed creation which contained more than 3,000 jewels and took six people 1,500 hours to craft.

Not exactly a bra your average woman can afford but, of course, that's not the point. All Victoria's Secret care about is publicity and that's what they got with this tunt.

victoria_beckham_david_sunglasses.jpg

Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has enlisted the help of her husband, David, to help her sell a new line of sunglasses she is marketing. She's taken a picture of David wearing a pair of the new glasses, posted it to yfrog and tweeted it.

Nothing like leveraging you hot husband for financial gain. But, hey, we'd all do it if our significant others were as good-looking and as famous as David, right?
