Say What? Size 2 Model Canned by Ralph Lauren

"I have been working with them since I was 15 years old, since I was a teenager. So for me they were my second family . . . I was very hurt by this, and I don't think it's good . . . when young women look at this picture, they're going to think it's normal to look like that, but it's not."

— Filippa Hamilton on The Today Show, about being fired by Ralph Lauren in April for her "inability to meet obligations with us." Apparently, those obligations involved transforming her 5'8", 120-pound, size 2 body into bobble-headed alien proportions. (They told her agency she was too big for their clothes. Hmmm. What does that make the women who might buy Ralph Lauren clothes?) My response to this nonsense? Bring back the healthy models!
