No, Really, Suck It, Ralph Lauren

Filed under: Suck it,The Fat's in the Fire — Twistie @ 8:30 am

A few of you may recall the recent firestorm over Ralph Lauren’s ultra-intense Photoshop mad skillz. Our own Plumcake covered the question with eloquence and style.

Well, now some good folks have organized their fury into a boycott. If you wish to join the boycott (and let Mr. Lauren know about it), here is where to go to sign on the dotted line.

Remember, Ralphie is the one who photoshopped a model until her head appeared literally bigger than her hips, tried to sue the first people to call him on it, and then fired the model for being too fat.

It’s bad enough that beauty is considered to be a dress size rather than lovely features or a spark of internal fire. Do we really need beauty to be too thin for anybody at all to achieve? My resounding response is Hell No!

I signed. Will you?


  1. I have purchased lots of RL over the years, but will no longer do so. I’ve signed the letter, and will enforce it with my wallet.

  3. Francesca is flattered that Twistie thought she (Francesca) wrote the original post, but in fact it was our dear Plumcake.

  4. D’oh! Off to fix it.

    Plummy, can you ever forgive me?

  5. I’m very late on the news. But damn! I’m gonna sign.
