Some of you may have heard about the Ralph Lauren model, Filippa Hamilton, whose body was so Photoshopped in a recent ad that she looked like a funhouse mirror. Lauren later apologized for the "distorted image."
Now come reports that the 23-year-old French model in that ad was fired from her RL contract.
At 23, 5 feet, 10 inches and 120 pounds — a size 4 — Hamilton has been doing Ralph Lauren print ads since 2002. But the company claims she’s now too fat to fit into their sample clothes. Ralph Lauren admits that Hamilton was fired, explaining the termination came “as a result of her inability to meet the obligations under her contract with us.”
Which is a polite way of saying, "This girl is a porker."
Hamilton didn’t mince words either about getting fired for her weight.
Hamilton's response: “I think they owe American women an apology, a big apology; I’m very proud of what I look like, and I think a role model should look healthy.”
What do you think? Is she fat? Is Ralph Lauren crazy or blind or both?
