Aerie adds three amazing models to their new line
Aerie is taking another stride into body positivity, and we heart it! In 2014 they launched their #AerieReal campaign, and since then Arie has seen a huge wave of success. They are continuing to ride that wave with their new spring campaign (role) models: Rachel Platten, Yara Shahidi, and Aly Raisman (featured above with Aerie veteran Iskra Lawrence). These girls give us major confidence *inspo*.
Aerie is all about building up confidence in girls, which is exactly what their new models are doing. Here's the inside scoop on these models:
You’ve probably seen Yara as Zoey on the hilarious sitcom Black-ish or maybe you caught her in the spin-off Grown-ish. Yara has rocketed into a majorly successful acting career, but acting isn’t the only talent she possesses. She’s got a knack for inspiring people and she’s been spreading that gift through speech and campaigns, just like this Aerie one.
What can’t Aly Raisman do? She’s a member of the US Olympic teams dubbed “The Fierce Five” and “Final Five," two-time Olympian, three-time gold medalist, and author. Aly has inspired thousands of girls around the world through her reliance when she spoke up against Larry Nassar in court. The act was brave and proved that she has the strength not only physically, but emotionally, and mentally too.
In 2015 Rachel Platten released our favorite anthem, “Fight Song." Since then she’s been thriving with her music and her humanitarian work. She’s an ambassador for Music Unites and Live Below the Line. Rachel has shown that it’s important to be positive and give back to the community.
The girls will be giving amaze speeches at various Aerie stores and they'll have their own *exclusive* content. Best of all, the profits from the sales will go to a charity of their choice!
Which girl are you most excited to see joining this campaign? Let us know in the comments!
