Unhealthily underweight model advert banned

An Yves Saint Laurent advertisement featuring an unhealthily underweight model has been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). The advert, which appeared in Elle UK magazine, featured a photo of a woman whose rib cage was visible and appeared prominent. It upheld a reader's complaint that the advert was irresponsible for using a model who appeared unhealthily thin.
