Stanton's photos capture pieces of everyday life from New Yorkers he stops in the street. Stanton's subjects share their happiest moments, their biggest fears, the advice they would share with a large group of people ... anything Stanton thinks others may connect with.   read more

7 Best Dove Beauty Products

Dove's unprecedented Campaign for Real Beauty celebrates bodies of all shapes, sizes, colors, and ages. It employs plus-size models, women of different races and those with wrinkles and sun spots to inspire us real women to feel more comfortable in our own skin -- so to speak. Dove continually creates memorable, groundbreaking (and at times controversial) ads and commercials; they make pro-age beauty products instead of anti-aging ones; and now, with their "Movement for Self-Esteem", they're trying to reach a younger generation by helping instill confidence in adolescent girls. However, 13- to 93-year-old women can resonate with this poignant slogan for the movement: "Imagine a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety."   See products
