American Eagle Outfitters ... LOVE reading what they are doing ! Starting today, the company is on a new mission to stop retouching their photos and to stop using Supermodels as their models. In my opinion,I think it’s a GREAT idea ! I think this is a step in the right direction to help show all people, young and old, that everyone is beautiful in any body that you have. It has been for too long that clothing companies have been using the thinnest of models to wear thier clothes ,and it has put a poor sense of being into not only our young ladies and men,but older adults ,too.
I want to applaude American Eagle for doing this and announcing it to everyone. I have two young daughters and they love shopping at AE ; now I will let them shop there more ... just for this new outlook that AE has . I cannot wait to see how this decision will work out for the company, and I hope that all other designers and clothing stores get on board with this . Let’s give our girls (and boys) their image of self and self confidence back ! Time …. !
I heard about this on the news and I was so excited! I totally agree with you--some authencity of natural beauty and different body types in the fashion industry is way overdue.
I applaude to them because, it help build confidence in women. Each women should have her own personal style no matter what size or body type they are.
