Carolyn Giles, a model on Ford's books, filed a $23 million lawsuit against her agency, Volvo, and Hertz, accusing them of misusing her image in an advertisement for a Volvo-sponsored dating event and making her look "like [someone] you'd see in the old yellow pages directories under escort services." The photo was originally an ad for Volvo's S4, taken five years ago, but she stumbled upon it recently online after being alerted by an ex-boyfriend. Awkward. We should also mention that the image in question shows Giles in a car, fully clothed, and putting on a seatbelt — so maybe she looks like a responsible escort?
