Why Ralph Lauren Photoshopped That Model So Skinny... It Thought She Was Fat... At 120 lbs
from the how-nice dept
We recently wrote about Ralph Lauren's DMCA notices about bad Photoshopping, making a model impossibly (and sickly) skinny. While the company apologized for the bad photoshopping, it never apologized for the bogus DMCA takedowns. And, now the other shoe has dropped. The model in the picture has spoken up and noted that she lost her job with Ralph Lauren, because they felt she wasn't skinny enough, despite being 5'10" and 120lbs. So, rather than showing her as is, apparently the company decided to digitally alter her and then try to find someone who actually is closer to the impossible image they put in their ad.
