Models featured in the spring collection of American Eagle’s lingerie store Aerie aren’t getting any special treatment.
In its Spring 2014 ad campaign Aerie Real, the company promises that any images of models featured in its ads won’t be altered in any way. No Photoshop. No airbrushing.
The move is considered an industry line very few fashion magazines have gone before. (Think Marie Claire’s 2010 cover with Jessica Simpson or Ingelligent Life’s 2012 cover featuring Cate Blanchett.)
The campaign is “challenging supermodel standards by featuring unretouched models in their latest collection of bras, undies and apparel,” the store said Friday in a public statement.
The raw photos show women of all shapes and sizes — ones, the company said, wouldn’t necessarily be considered for lingerie modeling in the current airbrushed industry. The women are still gorgeous, young, thin, and smiley — after all, they’re trying to sell bras and panties — but now they’re also freckled, scarred, and tattooed.
Had a transvaginal probe to try to figure out why my feminine parts have been behaving insanely lately. Results were normal; no cysts, no fibroids, nothing out of the ordinary. Whew. Being probed is no fun but it was kind of cool to look at my ovaries on that TV screen.
