Is Ralph Lauren Addicted to Photoshop?

He's at it again...OK maybe not Ralph Lauren personally, but his minions certainly

Deep Glamour girl Virginia Postrel points out in her Forbes.com article that

Lauren sells dreams of transformation and escape--all those green lawns and polo fields, safari tents and Rocky Mountain ranches. His designs transport the audience out of everyday experience and make the ideal life seem palpable.

Well transformation pretty much sums it up what is going on with the image of this brand as another Ralph Lauren model, this time Valentina Zelyaeva, the world's 13th highest paid model, is deemed to be to big for Ralph Lauren ads.

The sad thing is that these photographs literally look ridiculous - like bobbleheads. It's so unnatural. These are beautiful women...why mar their gorgeous features by turning their photographs into humorous pieces? I only wish Ralph Lauren would see the error of his ways. I thought he would have learned his lesson after the first debacle; he's only making it bad on himself at this point. :/

I was shocked the last time you posted on this a thought surely it was a fluke.

It's so gross I don't know what to say.

So obviously fake. It doesn't even look proportional at all! Ralph needs to hire some new photoshoppers!
