Betty on the News: Another Ralph Lauren Model Photoshopped to Look Skinnier
Will the high-end clothing line ever stop altering its models?
A new image from the Ralph Lauren corporation is causing a stir once again and needless to say we aren’t the least bit surprised.
Model Valentina Zelyaeva is currently featured on the Ralph Lauren Australia Web site, looking extremely skinny and disproportioned. Her hand appears nearly as wide as her thigh and her shoulders are considerably wider than her hips.
What’s strange is that there are two different versions of the photo on the site, and one seems to show the model in her true form (did the company think they could sneak the digitally altered one past us?).
The image has been posted on PhotoshopDisasters.blogspot.com, with commentators wondering “why they don’t just show their clothes on skeletons… or are those not skinny enough?”
Ralph Lauren has yet to comment on the ad, though a response is expected sometime this afternoon. (Daily Mail)
