Design Question, How Appropriate is an Advertisement Showing a Nude Woman?

For me, the Yves Saint Laurent Opium perfume advert featuring a naked Sophie Dahl always has been one of the most beautiful advertisements in the modern fashion history.

But  www.guardian.co.uk  reports that this was one of the most complained about ads in the Advertising Standards Agency history and was banned from UK billboards.

The article states, that “An advertisement showing a nude woman on a divan is not appropriate for St. Mark’s Square,” said mayor of Venice Giorgio Orsoni.

Well, he has an opinion. What do you think about it?
