So sad, it’s stupid

You know Ralph Lauren fired Filippa Hamilton-Palmstierna for being too fat. Yea, I thought the same thing. I think she something like 5’10 120lb. I know, I know, whoa mama, she’ll blowin up the scale.

Anyways, in case the height to weight ration didn’t illustrate just how stupid the Ralph Lauren decision was, the recent Photoshoped billboards of Filippa prove the point.

Umm yea, does this look natural? Her head is wider than her waist. WTF?

Rachel Maddow did a short piece on this yesterday. Watch and Enjoy!

Ralph's an idiot.
That girl is lucky to move on to better things.

WOW- We live in a very scary world if we consider 5'10 and 120 pounds 'too' fat. Thanks for sharing this, I hadn't heard about it. I hope this girl gets a big contract with some other company.

Vanessa said...

WTF!!! I just love Filippa, and always thought she was one of the more healthier, beautiful models! The photoshopped pics look like retarded, fake, and ugly! I love Ralph, but am considering a temporary boycott! Thank you for posting this!

this entire issue is so sad and maddening. when i first saw the photoshopped photos all i could think about were those Candy's ads from about 10 years ago where the heads were all blown out of proportion, but on purpose!

This is so silly! (to put it mildly) And very, very sad.
In no way is she anywhere near fat, and the photoshopped version just looks crazily unhealthy and unnatural.
I understand photoshopping if the model happened to come in with a huge pimple on her forehead on the day of the shoot, but distorting body size and shape is wrong.

I agree with Diane. Ralph Lauren's creative department is dumb and uninspired. and I bet they're loving all this bad press.

I've been a photographer of women for over 20 years and I strongly prefer women who are healthy and wholesome and got curves. I think most men do? The "heroin look" does nothing for me.
