Oops, He Did It Again

...Ralph Lauren that is. Link provides full article in the UK Telegraph.

Seems the company ad department has photoshopped another ad image to create another unrealistically thin model.

the one on the left is the touched-up image, the right is the original. Yep, there's a difference, and it's visible to the naked eye.

From the article by Nick Allen in Los Angeles, published: 6:15PM BST 20 Oct 2009

"An image of the Russian-born model Valentina Zelyaeva appeared in a shop in Sydney, Australia, and on the clothing label's Australian website, with her waist digitally squeezed to appear impossibly skinny.

It followed a case last week when a photograph of another Ralph Lauren model, Filippa Hamilton, looking so thin that her waist and hips were smaller than her head, appeared in a department store in Tokyo.

The digitally altered picture of Miss Zelyaeva appeared on the fashion house's website alongside one of her that had not been altered that showed her with a noticeably wider waist. In the altered photograph her shoulders are clearly wider than her hips."

Got to wonder how many more of these altered ads exist in the world and have yet to be discovered.
