H&M’s new beachwear campaign featuring Jennie Runk is pretty awesome. In this article she explains that women have sent her messages saying that this ad campaign has given them the confidence to try on a bikini for the first time in years!
See… it does make a difference when we see diverse body types in advertising and media!
I’m enjoying a much needed holiday overseas. I won’t be posting any ad-busting for 2 weeks, but don’t worry, I’ll be back!
A big THANK YOU goes out to the wonderful people who have sent me nice emails thanking me for the work I do. You guys inspire me to keep ad-busting!
The appearance of a tampon shouldn’t be it’s selling feature…
I really like this Sorel advertisement because it features an intelligent woman who does good work. Leila Janah is the Founder and CEO of Samasource, a non-profit social business that gives digital work to impoverished people around the world. She graduated from Harvard University with a degree in African Development Studies and has done plenty of great work in the fields of medicine, technology and social/economic justice.
What a brilliant concept to use a woman like her in advertising!
I like that Sorel chose to feature a real person whose work takes her to remote locations where she would actually need a good pair of warm boots. They could have used a model wearing nothing but boots, like this stupid Ugg advertisement, but they chose to do something way cooler. Thanks, Sorel!
Note: Not everything I post is “ad-busting” or “feminist” or deep or thoughtful. Sometimes the stuff I post is just fun, silly, quirky, etc. and that’s OK.
What’s being implied here is that flats are frumpy and heels are fabulous. Whatever, Häagen-Dazs. At least my feet don’t hurt.
