just to add to our fantastic discussion last week about photoshopped images. This was actually published in magazines this month:

According to Ralph Lauren:

“For over 42 years we have built a brand based on quality and integrity. After further investigation, we have learned that we are responsible for the poor imaging and retouching that resulted in a very distorted image of a woman’s body. We have addressed the problem and going forward will take every precaution to ensure that the caliber of our artwork represents our brand appropriately.”

uh-huh.

UPDATE:
Apparently, the model for this ad has been fired by Ralph Lauren. For being too big.

UPDATE 2:

oh, Ralph Lauren is not having a good week. This ad was just found. Seems the fashion line has made this photoshopping thing a habit:
