A model of 14 was banned from the catwalk in Australia yesterday amid continuing controversy over the sexualisation of young girls in the fashion industry.

A photo-shoot of Monika Jagaciak by Australian Vogue was also called off after the editor said she had not realised the Polish teenager's age.

I don't know about "over-sexualizing", but she looks ridiculous! How in the world would that sell the dress????

I don't really see any sexuality in the photos... but I really like the second one, it's very pretty.

Wow, she is stunning... I don't think the photos are racy, but I do agree with age limits on modeling. IMO, you should be at least 16 before "strutting your stuff" on a runway or high-fashion photo shoot. My brother was a fairly successful child/teen model, and even at a young age (under 14) he encountered some very uncomfortable & inappropriate situations - one of the reasons he quit, actually.

She is gorgeous but she should not be selling fashions for adults. If she wants to model things for her own age group then fine but I don't agree with blurring the lines to the point where they are selling a 14 year old as an adult.

I'm glad they are taking some responsibility.
