When Aerie, the lingerie and sportswear division of teen-fashion fave American Eagle, launched its Aerie Real campaign, the company wanted to showcase young women's bodies as they really are. Some of the Aerie models are plus-size, some are not, and all are refreshingly beautiful because they haven't been touched up to look flawless.
The latest model for the brand is Barbie Ferreira. As the Aerie spokesperson put it, "We cast Barbie because she’s got nothing to hide, she’s strong and beautiful--she embraces her real self, which is the spirit of the Aerie Real message."
We say bravo--and so will you after you see the whole photo.
