Filippa Hamilton: Photoshopped, Fired For Being Fat

by at . Comments

Filippa Hamilton is hot.

She is also 5-foot-10 and a relatively healthy 120-pounds.

But the French model was recently altered dramatically for a Japanese print ad, and claims she was fired by Ralph Lauren because they thought she was too fat.

"They fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn't fit in their clothes anymore," Filippa Hamilton said in an interview with the New York Daily News.

Hamilton said of the Ralph Lauren Blue Label ad, which features a funhouse mirror-like slimming of her hips: "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."

She's got a point. Check out the hilarious comparison:

Filippa Hamilton looks great on the left. The right? Well ...

The company, in response, said the controversially altered picture "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."

They confirmed Hamilton was released "as a result of her inability to meet the obligations under her contract with us." Ah, the ol' catch-all breach of contract.

Hamilton, who had modeled for the designer since 2002, was unmoved and left little room for interpretation when she said in reply: "[Ralph Lauren] fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn't fit in their clothes anymore."

"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 Filippa too fat?

She is actually underweight according to BMI index. The photo on the left looks like a distorted reflection in a funhouse mirror, completely out of touch with reality. The modeling industry seems to be getting weirder and faker with each advancement in photo retouching.
Women should stop forking over billions of dollars to this messed up industry that uses stick thin teen girls as models and then digitally alters their already underdeveloped bodies to represent some sick ideal that women could never achieve.
Women are the majority of fashion consumers, the fashion industry should be mindful of the wants and needs of grown women. Women are getting tired of this skeletal thin, photoshopped b.s

i don't get how people believe being all skin and bones and no meat at all is "pretty"

she is in no way at all "overweight" and i think she should gain a few more lbs to be even a normal weight
