As you may remember from an earlier post, Ralph Lauren was under fire for the above-left ad, in which model Filippa Hamilton was airbrushed to resemble a Praying Mantis — for which Ralph Lauren has since apologized, blaming it on “poor imaging.”
Well, their image about to get a whole lot more “poor,” with the 23-year-old Filippa coming forward to reveal that, after eight years of working for them, Ralph Lauren has actually fired the 5’10”, 120-lb. model for BEING TOO FAT.
Are they kidding me? Screw Ralph and that stupid Polo horse he rode in on!
Filippa was fired in April, but decided to go public now because she was appalled to see the altered image that made her look like skin and bones. She said she looked so “dangerously emaciated,” she was compelled to protest.
“Every young woman is going to look at [the photo] and think that it is normal to look like that — it’s not,” Filippa told “Today Show” host Ann Curry.
Unless, of course, you want to use your hip bones to slice deli meats! Then it’s all good. Karl Lagerfeld approves.
