Britain’s Advertising Standards Authority has banned this Hailee Steinfeld Miu Miu ad, calling it “irresponsible.” The ban comes just after Dakota Fanning‘s ad for Oh, Lola! perfume was deemed too racy for publication.

Although Miu Miu’s parent company Prada Retail UK maintains that the ad in question was “based on the set of an imaginary film” and “part of a serious, high-fashion campaign,” the ASA thought that the mix of Steinfeld’s age (14), her location in the ad (on a train track) and pose (wiping her eyes with a sad expression) seemed to portray “a child in an unsafe location,” according to the Telegraph.

Do you think the Hailee Steinfeld Miu Miu ad is irresponsible, or is the ASA too sensitive?
