The newest controversy with fashion giant Ralph Lauren is with model Tao Okamoto's photoshopped image. The model was given a seriously slender waist, one that is clearly not her own. Ralph Lauren has been known to be a bit outspoken in the past, especially with regards to his distaste for plus-sized models.

This image is certainly alarming, as Tao Okamoto's waist looks like it belongs to a small child. Regardless, photoshopping has become a part of the industry -- it just needs to remain on a realistic level. Stats for Stick-Thin Photoshopping Trending: Older & Buzzing
