Julia Roberts Ad Banned

L'Oreal ads featuring Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington have been pulled from circulation in the United Kingdom "for being overly-airbrushed."

The decision was made after Jo Swinson, a Liberal Democrat member of Parliament "who has waged a long-running campaign against 'overly perfected and unrealistic images' of women in adverts, lodged complaints with the Advertising Standards Authority" about the images.

The ASA ruled the ads "breached the advertising standards code for exaggeration and being misleading and banned them from future publication."
