It's quite a smart move, and, it seems, rather prescient: The campaign was launched just as the website Jezebel put up $10,000 for unretouched photos of Lena Dunham's Vogue editorial. If anything, the Aerie images serve to highlight just how beautiful unretouched photos can be. And even more importantly, it normalizes what real women look like.
And apparently, the campaign is enough to make even seasoned models a little nervous. Model Daria Strokous posted an image of one of the Aerie ads on her Instagram with the caption "#nosupermodels #noretouching We are going out of business girls."
What do you think of the campaign? [Styleite]
