update: if you read the comments on fabsugar, you can see that some people find these ads offensive. They feel the depiction of any non-Caucasian woman with exotic animals can be construed as negative. I personally do not see the ads this way , but do respect that opinion. I do think that Lakshmi Menon and other models such as Liya Kebede are not necessarily more objectified than any other model -- and I enjoy seeing them in editorials and ads and I do think their presence helps present more diversity. But again maybe this is something that has to be looked at on a case and by case basis and surely this also has to do with the worldview of the beholder. When I look at these ads I also sympathize with the people who voiced their concern in regard to the animals. I do not think this shoot was harmful for them, I think how they generally are treated might be more of interest.
