These ads would never be aired now.. (Brooke Shields)

I remember these, especially the 4th one in the video at link. That open leg beaver shot is pretty blatant. I can imagine how freaked out people would be now if a 13 or 14 year old would do something similar now.

Pretty gross and obvious.

She is young in those ads, but the ads are lovely and it's nice to see them again.

Her age in those ads would be shocking today... but an even greater shock would be the grace, the style and the sly wit with which they were done.

Well, she was arguably the most beautiful teenager since Elizabeth Taylor.

Brooke Shields had natural beauty at that age. Now, most women celebrities are all fake looking.

People were pretty shocked about it at the time. They were also shocked by baby dyke Jodie Foster playing a 12 year old heterosexual hooker.

SNL did a spoof based on the young models/sex symbols called "Babies in Makeup." Today, we actually have babies in makeup on TV. Honey Boo Boo and other toddlers in tiaras are now mainstream entertainment.

Those commercials are soft kiddy porn. She was what, 15 years old then? And she's wearing a ton of makeup to make her look older, and the camera is lingering on her ass and subtle! And she's murmuring about how "nothing" comes between her and her Calvins. Yech. A 15 year old on display as a sex object. Pretty gross. But it sold jeans!

She may have been beautiful as a teenager, but she looks like a tranny now.

@1:22 mark, someone needs to tell Diana Ross that Brooke stole her wig.

I think she she looked like an old crone.

What was wrong with Teri Shields, Brooke's mom? And why didn't Brooke's dad step in when Teri was clearly exploiting her daughter?

Wasn't Brook Shields naked in The Blue Lagoon about the time that nothing was coming between her and her Calvins? I think she was about 16, but I don't know the age of Christopher Atkins. I think they or their parents and the films producers could be prosecuted nowadays. I know a teenager who was arrested for sending dick pix on his cell phone to another teen.

The SCTV parody, which still makes me laugh, at the beginning of "The Brooke Shields Show"

R6, she was 14 when the first one aired..

There's more of a consciousness about pedophillia now. Lots of denial then.

She says she was 15 when she did the ads.

She's obviously portraying someone older (references to paying rent, etc). She also looks older. If the ads were controversial, it's because the general public knew her real age due to her notoriety from Pretty Baby. Or because, regardless of her age, the ads were suggestive for the time.

r10 is an idiot. What would they be prosecuted for?

I BEGGED my grandma for a pair of deep blue, white stitched Calvins when I was 15!

Gross. Nothing more sickening than female body parts.
