The Body Shop’s Ruby

A friend turned me on to these body shop ads today:

 

I read a little about this campaign here and in NYT.

I find myself wanting to buy these Barbie dolls so I can give them to my daughter someday 🙂 That said, we all know that women of all shapes and sizes have body image issues – rooted to our ideas of ourselves as defined by attractiveness to sexual partners whose idea of beauty is defined by the media – even if we look like Barbie, right? And yet, I find myself love love loving the Body Shop. So it’s Jcrew and Body Shop for me this year!

  1. I think that’s a great tag line! It’s about time the public was reminded that models don’t even look like their public image 90% of the time.
