Rihanna sure has been making headlines a lot this week!

First, the 26-year-old singer wore a totally see-through dress to the CFDA Awards where she was being honored as Fashion Icon of the Year.

Now, the ad for RiRi’s new perfume Rogue is being banned in the U.K. because it is “sexually suggestive”…but is it really that risqué?

The Washington Post reports that the poster, which features Rihanna covering up her bare chest with her arms and wearing very little else except a pair of high heels, has been ordered to be taken down by the United Kingdom’s Advertising Standards Authority.

However, the problem is mainly due to the way she’s posing, not her lack of clothing.

“We noted the ad was not given a placement restriction and had appeared in a number of places where it was likely to be seen by children,” the ASA said in a statement. “While we did not consider the image to be overtly sexual, we considered that Rihanna’s pose, with her legs raised in the air, was provocative. Because of this, and the fact that Rihanna appeared to be naked except for high heels, we concluded that the ad was sexually suggestive and should have been given a placement restriction to reduce the possibility of it being seen by children.”

According to E! News, the ad is already being removed from public places across the U.K.

What do you think? Is the ad too sexy for the public eye? Sound off below!
