Filippa Hamilton Was Fired by Ralph Lauren For Being "Too Fat"
Just a few weeks ago, the controversial Ralph Lauren ad stormed the internet. The ad pictured a digitally-edited body of Filippa Hamilton. Ralph Lauren tried to sue the sites who released the photo over the internet but they were not successful. As a result, the public were outraged with "too-thin" model principle by the said brand.
To escape from this bad publicity, Ralph Lauren made a public apology, stressing their responsibility of releasing artworks that represents their company at its best. They also assured the public that they will be addressing the problem.
However, reports said that Ralph Lauren had fired Filippa Hamilton because of her inability to meet the obligations under her contract according to the brand. This statement was different from Filippa Hamilton's. She revealed that she was fired because she was too fat for them.
Here is the video of Filippa Hamilton as she discussed how Ralph Lauren fired her. Be the judge and tell me if she is too fat to be a model?
Well, here are my thoughts about this big fashion buzz. Filippa is 5'10" and weighs 120. I don't think that she is fat because if she is then I will be considered as overweight.
