This advertisement for Gucci debuted in the February 2003 issue of Vogue and quickly came under fire for its provocative content. Personally designed by Gucci Creative Director Tom Ford and featuring 24-year old model Carmen Kass with the letter 'G' shaved into her pubic hair, the image was unofficially dubbed 'Pubic Enemy'.
