Too-Skinny Model Fired for Being Too Fat
Filippa Hamilton, the model whose figure was airbrushed to the point of emaciation for a controversial Ralph Lauren ad, claims that Ralph Lauren fired her, in fact, for being too fat. "They fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn't fit in their clothes anymore," she told the Daily News on Tuesday. "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." Ralph Lauren claims that the ad, which was only shown in Japan, was mistakenly released. "I think they owe American women an apology, a big apology," Hamilton said. "I'm very proud of what I look like, and I think a role model should look healthy." -DBeast
