This model is breaking all norms. You will fall in love with her when you see her
Women are always under the pressure of being observed of strange “standard of beauty”. In spite of the fact that beauty comes in different shapes and sizes, the media, especially the fashion industry focuses on models being outrageously skinny. Irrespective of the fact, that this brings a lot of big problems into the society itself, as it brings unhealthy eating habits. Aerie, a company however, planned to do something different from others. A current campaign, which is known as Aerie Real has been much talked about and the concept of the company is all about real beauty and not the fake standard established by the industry. The company features Barbie Ferrieira as she flaunts and shows what body positivity is all about.
1 Who is Barbie Ferrieira?
Barbie is a New York based model who spends her time in booking gigs with the top fashion magazine and has flattered the whole industry. With all those awful thin models in today’s fashion world, it’s great to see someone who is truly comfortable in her skin for the self-love and reflecting that beauty comes in all sizes and shapes.
2 Say No To Body Shaming
Magazines are continuously giving their suggestions as to how one should reduce weight “within days” and “instantly” get slimmer and conceal the “imperfections” without literally knowing anything about us, much less our appearance. This is an example of body-shaming, and it is everywhere. Funny shows usually pick up the overweight characters’ bodies so as to make these characters the butt of all jokes. Body-shaming can cause violent cycle of judgement and criticism. Messages from media and others reveal that now there should be a change, as to no one bothers about looking slimmer, taller, and tanner.
- Body-shaming gets displayed in many ways:
- Opposing your own appearance, through a judgement or comparison to some other person.
- Opposing someone other’s personality in front of someone else.
- Criticizing someone other’s appearance without their approval.
3 Forget The Embarrassment Of Having To Hide Your Shape
No matter how body shaming gets reflected but usually it leads to shame and comparisons with someone else. We should search why we are upset about a situation to determine who is body-positive or body-neutral in one’s life. We should recognize people who are happy with their body type and people who decline commenting on other’s physical appearance. We should disclose those people who do body-shaming and once you get aware of your body-shaming behaviours, you will notice how your friends, co-workers do it. Have conversation with them.
Barbie is constantly receiving criticism as she is not like those typical models, but still she shows her love for herself. She even cracked a joke by saying, “You think I’m fat? I’m still rocking.” Such a strong message reflects how strong she is.
Barbie’s viewpoint is easy to love, so if anyone rejects her, it would reflect him and his brand. She has a mind-set of her own and knows what she wants and has kept herself original and exactly these attributes make her the perfect face for Aerie’s # AerieReal campaign. It’s all about being real!! Don’t you think so??
