There’s nothing we love more than a beautiful, confident girl who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Daniela from Nany’s Klozet gets REAL by talking about her personal bouts with Photoshop, all while looking effortlessly cool in our Aerie Girls Run the World Graphic Tank and Real Soft Hi-Rise Legging.
What makes Daniela #AerieREAL:
“Two years ago, I was getting ready to do a photo shoot that I was really excited about… until I saw the photographer’s portfolio. Why? He loved photoshopping girls to the extreme. To the point where they looked like aliens (and that’s without getting into how he would ask girls to drop 30 pounds before he “could” shoot them).
For a moment I felt like I wasn’t enough—hey, I’m just 5’1 and I have curves, nowhere near his “model standards.” But I realized I wasn’t going to let him do that. I told him: “You are not photoshopping me. This is who I am, this is how I look. I love my body, I love MY REAL SELF.”
“One of the reasons I love the #AerieReal campaign is that it features unretouched images. The campaign has images of Emma Roberts looking gorgeous and most importantly, REAL. Like she shared on the Aerie site: “There’s nothing cooler or more beautiful than being yourself.”
