Ralph Lauren (the company, not the man) has a history of manipulating images to sell clothing. In fact, the company is responsible for one of the most infamous Photoshop makeovers—the cartoonish distortion of model Filippa Hamilton's body for a Blue Label ad in 2009. After the company was hammered by critics of this travesty, Ralph Lauren apologized for the ad and promised stricter controls on image manipulation. Apparently not everyone got the memo. A few months later, another Ralph Lauren hack job surfaced, this time in an ad featuring model Valentina Zelyaeva. The chicanery wasn't limited to print. The Zelyaeva photo was heavily used online, along with other ads that displayed an unnatural fondness for waist-shrinking. (Just noticed the horse is wearing leg warmers! Must be a preppy thing.) Middle manager to frazzled graphic artist: "Dammit; I said slimmer! Do it! I don't care if there aren't any humans with heads larger than their waists!" I suppose one can argue that it's only the bodies being manipulated, not the clothing. But let's get real; a company that would shamelessly distort images of women to sell clothing is unlikely to have ethical concerns about tweaking photos of leather jackets or fatigue pants.
