Oh my GOD, Ralph Lauren! Keep your Photoshop brushes in your pants! What is wrong with you people? Earlier this month, an insane Ralph Lauren ad appeared, in which their long-time model Filippa Hamilton was photoshopped into a creepy, unrecognizable insectile creature from outer space. Hamilton was reportedly horrified by the image, and said “I think they owe American women an apology, a big apology,” she said. “I’m very proud of what I look like, and I think a role model should look healthy.” She also claimed to have been terminated from her contract when they told her she was “too fat” to keep modeling for them. Which explains the creepy photo? I don’t know! It remains creepy.
And now another one has surfaced! The company apologized for the first ad, saying it was “mistakenly released.” How can they explain this one? My guess is that someone in their art department is clinically insane.
I’m not a consipiracy theorist, I swear it. But I’ve got to tell you, it’s not hard to start thinking that maybe this isn’t an oopsie do, tee hee! Maybe Ralph Lauren is making some kind of twisted commentary about women’s bodies. Maybe Ralph Lauren and Karl Lagerfeld are best friends! Maybe someone ought to retire their Photoshop license.
