A Lancôme print ad featuring Julia Roberts has been banned in Britain after MP Jo Swinson filed a complaint with U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority, calling it “misleading” because “the flawless skin in the image was the result of digital manipulation, not the product.”
the ASA upheld Swinson’s complaint, stating the ad was “not representative of the results the products could achieve” because it had been airbrushed.
“Excessive airbrushing and digital manipulation techniques have become the norm, but both Christy Turlington and Julia Roberts are naturally beautiful women who don’t need retouching to look great.”
A Maybelline campaign featuring Christy Turlington was also pulled.

This is your first look at Lily Collins as Snow White in the yet to be titled Relativity Media film.
Lilly, daughter of Phil Collins, is delighted she's playing the fairest of them all:
"I keep saying to everyone I feel like I’m walking into a snow globe, a fairy tale, every single day. It’s so epic. I was part of a costume ball today, so you can only imagine the outfits."
And how is this Snow White different than the others?
"She’s a naive innocent young girl who turns into a woman and really finds herself. She's not a passive princess, but it’s not a cynical take on the folktale icon either. She’s very much that fairy tale princess we’ve all read about in books. She’s been modernized in a way that she becomes a fighter in the end."
The movie also stars Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen and Sean Bean as Snow White's father. It has a release date of March 16, 2012.
