A billboard featuring Hollywood actress Julianne Moore posing naked for a fashion campaign has been banned by officials in Venice, Italy after it was deemed "inappropriate".

The Far From Heaven star stripped off for a recent shoot for Bulgari handbags and plans were in place to erect a promotional poster in the city's famous St Mark's Square but Venice's recently elected mayor, Giorgio Orsoni, deemed the picture - which shows Moore posing with only a handbag protecting her modesty - too risqué, reports telegraph.co.uk.

"An advertisement showing a nude woman on a divan is not appropriate for St Mark's Square," said Orsoni.

The billboard will instead show less racy images of the actress fully dressed and modelling Bulgari jewellery.
