Meet Hana! The newest addition to our Aerie team. Beautiful inside and out, read on to watch and learn what makes Hana #AerieREAL.

Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

Hana catching up with friends while waiting for her next shot!

Hi, Hana! Thanks for sitting down with us! Where’s home to you?   

I am originally from Claremont in Southern California, but now I live in West Village in NYC.

Do you have any hobbies that you can’t get enough of? 

Yes! Yoga! I teach Yoga each week as well.

What’s your favorite yoga pose?  

When things in my life are going crazy, I like to flip upside down. Inversions are awesome! I also really love hip openers and heart openers. It reminds me to remember to stand up and tall and not slouch.

Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

Namaste!

That’s awesome! You’re really talented! What’s your must-have item in your purse? 

Chapstick, I’m fully addicted to any chapstick and have about 15! But, of course, I always grab my one purse that never has any chapstick in it. If I had to choose a flavor? I would say cherry!

What’s your favorite go-to item in your closet?

I do have a favorite t-shirt! It’s sheer, long, and asymmetrical. I like to tie it up at the bottom. I wear it all the time, so my friends who are reading this will totally know what I am talking about!

Hana rocking out in her soft lace bralette and striped boxers!

What’s your all time favorite Aerie piece for Spring?

OMG. I love everything! I’m addicted to all of it. Aerie’s sweatpants are so cute and I love the little pockets. Also, I usually don’t rock a pushup, but I love the Brooke Polka Dot Pushup suit. I also love the bedtime lacy boxers!

Do you have a role model? 

To be honest, any strong, confident, female serves as a great role model to me. Lately, I have loved reading about Malala Yousafzai, “the bravest girl in the world.”  Her level of resilience is amazing and I love that she stands up for what she believes in.

Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

Let’s switch things up! Instead of John shooting Hana…wait, Hana that’s not what we meant!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, what does “love” mean to you?

I was in a yoga class and a teacher was talking about how the Japanese don’t say, “I love you.” And, if you think about it…we say “I love you” all the time! They challenge, “how can you take such a big feeling and emotion into a single word. It’s such an incredible thing!” I really like that description of it.

While it may be hard for me to sum up I do know one thing is for sure; it makes me warm and fuzzy just talking about it, and I don’t think it’s the Miami heat! :)

Thank you so much Hana for chatting with us!

Have you heard about Aerie REAL? Well, we think it’s time for a change. We think it’s time we get real and think real. We want every girl to feel good about who they are and what they look like, inside out. This means no more retouching our girls and no more supermodels.

Why? Because there is no reason to retouch beauty. We think the real you is sexy.

Meet Aerie’s Top Model…Charlie!

Meet Aerie’s Top Model…Charlie!

We had the opportunity to sit down with Charlie, the pup who made quite the splash breaking into the spotlight this holiday season. Dana S., Aerie’s Senior Director of Marketing and proud owner of her new model-in-training, rescued Charlie from Animal Friends, a shelter in Pittsburgh. Her new best friend was an immediate hit with our team, as he accompanied her to the holiday photoshoot. One thing led to another, and Charlie just might be the next top model. Read on below for an exclusive interview!

Meet Aerie's Top Model...Charlie!

Meet Charlie!

Hi, Charlie! Thanks for taking some time to sit with us! Can you tell us a little bit about your background? 

I spent the first two years of my life in animal shelters. I was well cared for but pretty scared and timid…until my new mom came in!  We connected right away. It took a bit to get used to my new place, especially the stairs, but now I love my comfy bed and big yard… it’s home!

 Aw! What’s your favorite sweet treat?

Honestly, I can’t get enough Beggin’ Strips…it’s my indulgence. But I keep it balanced with healthy snacks like carrots.

Smart! With a rising star like you. It’s important to focus on nutrition. Do you have a favorite getaway spot?

Grandma and Grandpa have a rockin’ cabin in the mountains. I love to bird watch and run around in the woods.

Sounds great! So, what was your favorite part of the photoshoot?

Hanging out with all the models, of course! All that attention and love from such pretty ladies. So many ear-rubs and walks and thanks to the caterers for all the secret treats they gave me.  Shhhh!

Meet Aerie's Top Model...Charlie!

Charlie making friends and scoring a few ear rubs on set!

You lucky, dog you! What are your plans for the Holidays? 

This is my second holiday with my family and I love to curl up in front of the fireplace while everyone hangs out.

Do you have a special toy on your Holiday wishlist? 

I love to destroy toys so I really only have them for one day. My favorite toy right now is a penguin. But he won’t make it to New Year’s. ;) I love anything that makes noise.

Meet Aerie's Top Model...Charlie!

Ready for his close-up.

 What’s your favorite Holiday song?

My mom plays them all but I love Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You!”


You seem very trendy. What’s your favorite, on-trend Holiday accessory? 

My red and green bow tie. No doubt.

Meet Aerie's Top Model...Charlie!

Looking fashionable in his bow tie after a good, but long day at work!

How handsome! How did you feel when you saw your picture up in Times Square? 

Like a rockstar! And so humbled. I realized how far I have come and how many people have helped me get to where I am. From my pals at Animal Friends in Pittsburgh to my new mom and my forever home… I know I am the luckiest dog in the world.

Thank you so much so much Charlie! We hope to see you around the office again soon!

Aerie
