Ralph Lauren is suing them over the reprint of an ad in which they make fun of the ridiculous photoshopping that made the model so thin her head is bigger than her pelvis.  They refuse to back down.  KUDOS!

    “Ralph Lauren apologises for digitally retouching slender model to make her head look bigger than her waist”

    Too little too late IMNSHO, but Photoshop Disasters and Boing Boing get honorable mention.

    I also found to be of some interest:
