This Bulgari ad featuring Julianne Moore lying naked across a divan with a handbag and lion cubs has been banned from display in Venice's St. Mark's Square. "An advertisement showing a nude woman on a divan is not appropriate for St. Mark's Square," said mayor Giorgio Orsoni. The billboard was slated to appear on Doge's Palace. Bulgari has replaced the original image with a new photo of a fully-clothed Moore.
