The other day I posted about Karl Lagerfeld causing a ton of fuss in the fashion industry after saying fat models don’t belong on the runway . Well now Ralph Lauren are causing the weight issue to hit the fan again after they fired a model for being too fat.
Ralph Lauren fired Filippa Hamilton after the picture above on the left cause outrage among people when it was used in Japan , the picture on the right is what she really looks like. I guess the fashion house didn’t listen to the people crying over the model looking way too skinny in the ad, because they fired her for looking too fat!
The 5’10″ and 123lbs model said “They fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn’t fit in their clothes anymore, I was shocked to see that super skinny girl with my face, It’s very sad, I think, that Ralph Lauren could do something like that. 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.”
The models lawyer, Geoffrey Menin, said the picture is a “gross distortion of how she really looks and which we fear will be extremely damaging to her.”
Ralph Lauren issued a statement saying that the 23-year-old model is a “beautiful and healthy woman but [our] relationship ended as a result of her inability to meet the obligations under her contract with us. The image in question was mistakenly released and used in a department store in Japan and was not the approved image which ran in the U.S. We take full responsibility, this error has absolutely no connection to our relationship with Filippa Hamilton.”
Somebody needs to step in to this whole fashion industry and start making rules, it is getting out of control.
