Miu Miu's fall 2011 ad campaign starring 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld were not entirely well-received. Even though we thought the Bruce Weber-lensed ads were tasteful and age-appropriate, many criticized Miu Miu for using a model that the brand's adult money-spending customers can't relate to.

An image from the Miu Miu's Resort 2012 campaign has just been released (we saw it on The Cut) and we wonder if the casting decision was informed by the mixed reactions to the Hailee Steinfeld campaign. Miu Miu has chosen Guinevere van Seenus, a 34-year-old modeling vet, as the latest face of the brand. David Sims shot the campaign, which has a more traditional campaign feel compared to Hailee's care-free, natural shots. Most likely, Miu Miu is trying to show that their clothes look great on women of all ages. And we don't think van Seenus' outfit here would look entirely inappropriate on Steinfeld either--especially that sparkly bow headband...

Which model do you think is the most "age appropriate" for Miu Miu?
