Custom rounded shape image using CSS

I want to get a custom-shape image as shown here:

rounded image

#oval-shape {
width: 200px;
height: 100px;
background: blue;
-moz-border-radius: 100px / 50px;
-webkit-border-radius: 100px / 50px;
border-radius: 100px / 50px;

<img id="oval-shape" src="http://d152j5tfobgaot.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/internship_yourstory.jpg">


Any thoughts if this is even possible?


There is one way you can "fake" this shape with border:

body {
  background: purple;
#oval-shape {
  margin: 20px auto;
  width: 200px;
  height: 200px;
  background: none;
  border-radius: 100%;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  border-bottom: 50px solid transparent;
<img src="http://d152j5tfobgaot.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/internship_yourstory.jpg" id="oval-shape">
