Marie Claire (South Africa) - - REPORTAGE -

In 2000, the English au­thor and fash­ion model be­came the face of Yves Saint Lau­rent’s Opium fra­grance.The cam­paign was di­rected by Tom Ford and shot by Steven Meisel, and fea­tured Dahl pos­ing naked against a black satin back­drop. The ad quickly be­came an iconic mo­ment in fash­ion and the sub­ject of much con­tro­versy: it was re­moved from bill­boards in the UK after com­plaints. It holds the record for the most com­plained-about ad of all time.
