Jimmy Choo Under Fire For “Clueless, Sexist” Shoe Ad

Jimmy Choo Under Fire For “Clueless, Sexist” Shoe Ad

Incredibly expensive stiletto maker, Jimmy Choo, has drawn criticism after its latest ad campaign featured a woman being wolf-whistled at on the streets of New York.

The ad features supermodel Cara Delevingne walking down a city street wearing a revealing little red dress and a pair of sparkly Jimmy Choo boots.

However, in the light of the Harvey Weinstein saga, many are questioning the brand’s decision to include the wolf-whistling and ogling from male passers-by.

People have called the ad out on social media, describing it as “clueless”, “sexist” and “tone deaf”.

As one woman wrote: “Can someone please tell the fashion industry that we have jobs and money now? They seem to keep selling exclusively to the men in our lives with these campaigns. Someone should let them know.”

Jimmy Choo has not responded to the criticism and there appears no plans to pull the ad:
