Barbie Ferreira, 19, featuring in Aerie’s latest campaign Aerie/ YouTube

A US lingerie brand has been praised for its revolutionary marketing after using a “curvy”, un-airbrushed teenager to model in its latest campaign.

Barbie Ferreira, a self-proclaimed “curve model”, is one of four women to feature in Aerie’s, a lingerie line from American Eagle, #AerieREAL campaign, which claims to feature “real” women, “real” bodies and no Photoshopping.

Nineteen-year-old Ms Ferreira, who has been dubbed the “Queen of in-between”, stars in the brand’s The Real You Is Sexy advertisement, which aims to foster body positivity through “loving your real self”.

The campaign video shows Ms Ferreira, who boasts over 200,000 Instagram followers, in a pink bikini reciting nuggets of body positive wisdom.

“I am unapologetically myself, no matter what anyone’s opinion is,” Ms Ferreira says in the video.

“Not being retouched in the images is something that’s very important to me – people knowing that, that’s what I look like without anyone’s perception of what my body needs to look like.”

Both Ms Ferreira and Aerie’s campaign have been widely praised on social media:
Speaking to i-D in November Ms Ferreira said the term “plus-size” was “inaccurate” and praised Instagram for providing a “raw, uncensored platform” for girls to model without limitations on their size or look.

“We cast Barbie because she’s got nothing to hide, she’s strong and beautiful – she embraces her real self, which is the spirit of the Aerie Real message,” Aerie global brand president, Jen Foyle, told Refinery29.
Aerie released a pledge in 2014 to always use un-airbrushed photos of women wearing its products. At the time, the line’s “style and fit expert”, Jenny Altman, told ABC News the company wanted to “show everything”, including birth marks and tattoos.

Last year Victoria’s Secret was attacked by commenters on Facebook for using a highly air-brushed image in one of its social media campaigns. The brand has since faced backlash from its customers to become more savvy to Photoshopping in adverts.

According to Business Insider, Aerie’s sales increased 18 per cent in the second quarter of 2015, compared to just 3 per cent at Victoria’s Secret.

Plus-size world’s golden girl Ashley Graham looks incredible as she strips off to display her curves for lingerie shoot on a private jet

  • The 28-year-old Navabi cover girl and supermodel unveils new range
  • Motto is ‘sexy is a state of mind’ and hopes range puts women in the mood
  • Has been an extremely successful 12 months for the star  

After breaking down barriers by appearing on the pages of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition, size 14 model Ashley Graham forged a career for herself as a body-positivity advocate and designer for girls of all sizes.

Clearly keen to make 2016 as successful as last year, Ashley is kicking off the year by unveiling her latest lingerie designs for women with curves – and models them all herself, of course.

The 28-year-old Navabi cover girl and supermodel says she has created lingerie that’s made to be seen and poses with two dapper men on a private plane to promote her latest designs.

Her motto is ‘sexy is a state of mind’ and she hopes her new range of lacy garments will put women in the mood.

Ashley’s new shoot comes just weeks after she was hailed among the likes of Caitlyn Jenner and Amy Schumer as a 2015 breakout star on ABC 20/20’s The Year.

On the special, which aired last December, the 28-year-old plus-size model discussed her groundbreaking Sports Illustrated appearance. 

‘To me, it made a huge impact because you can see my full body,’ Ashley said. ‘I think the beauty in that I’m just such a full-figured woman, people were just like, ‘hubba hubba.”

On her own meteoric rise to fame, Ashley mused that her popularity is down to her frankness when it comes to discussing her weight.

‘I’m not afraid to talk about it,’ she added. ‘Love it or get over it.’ 

The plus-size world's golden girl's motto is 'sexy is a state of mind' and she hopes her new range of lacy garments will put women in the mood.

She’s flying the flag for curvy women everywhere and Ashley Graham has now launched another collection in her range of lingerie.

Not only is she known for her underwear range she inspires women everywhere and is a model too, not to mention her website full of fashion tips – she is one busy woman!

But it’s the stunning lingerie designs we particularly love that kept women’s varying figures in mind when produced. The pieces are practical and pretty and we love Ashley’s motto: ‘sexy is a state of mind’. This new range features this stunning red lacy number with contrasting black piping and you can pick one up (right) at Navabi plus the matching pants below.

Graham told US Today the experience gave her chills.

“It was absolutely amazing,” she said.

“For the longest time I could find supportive bras and I could find sexy bras, but never both,” she said.

“I wanted to create a line that did both and made [women] feel beautiful.”

The size 16 model has become an advocate for women of all ages struggling with body issues after becoming the first plus-size model to appear in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

Baby got back! Beyonce shows off her famous curves as she strips down to cheeky slogan lingerie for steamy shoot

She’s no stranger to barely-there stage costumes and a sexy shoot.

But Beyonce has just unveiled one of her raciest photo sets yet, starring in a series of stunning shots for Flaunt Magazine.

Shot by Robin Harper, the photos see the chart-topper stripping down to bikinis and her underwear as she floats in a pool and explores the great outdoors.

Cheeky: Beyonce stars in a steamy new shoot for Flaunt Magazine, showing some skin in Baby Got Back lingerie

The 34-year-old is seen on the cover of the magazine, famed for its risque shoots, showing off her famous curves in a nude bra, with a Texas-shaped pendant nestled in her ample cleavage.

Her hair is styled into a long side plait, while the mum of one flaunts flawless makeup, and long nails.

Another jaw-dropping shot shows Beyonce in the same nude bra, paired with high-waisted underwear and a flowing white jacket.

The star seems to defy gravity as she strikes an unbelievable pose over a Los Angeles pool, holding her plait out to the side.

The Halo hitmaker also shows plenty of skin in a Baby Got Back two-piece as she crouches and pouts in the long grass.

Water is a big theme of the shoot, photographed by Robin Harper and styled by Zerina Akers, with the singer seen floating in a pool in several of the pics, all while keeping her perfect pout in place.

Look Bey-autiful in a Baby Got Back underwear

Bey has let loose in recent years when it comes to experimenting with her style; from a bejewelled sheer gown by Givenchy at the Met Gala to these sports luxe logo undies for a magazine shoot.

Underwear as outerwear has been a streetwear trend that trickled down from Spring 2015 where sheer and naked were very much au current. Think of For Love & Lemons and their crop tops/ bralettes that are made to be seen through mesh tops. So Bey certainly took our fancy when we set our eyes on her super cool undies set emblazoned with the words ‘Baby Got Back.’

We would pair this underwear set under a lace-y number by Dolce & Gabbana for a cheeky glam look or wear this under a sheer baggy tank and ripped jeans for an street style saavy outfit.

So head over to Dolls Kill to pick up a similar style underwear set as sadly, Bey’s exact one isn’t available online. Or check out our edit for other sporty statement bras that will get tongues wagging from the likes of Missguided to Moschino, all budgets covered.

Alongside the imagery Flaunt has crowned Queen Bey with another regal title, calling her in their piece the leader of their custom city – CALIFUK

‘There she sits, unwilling at the moment to invite distraction of the fundamental mission of her rule: to shape culture, to inspire the hip parade as well as the fringe, to rehearse, rehearse, rehearse, to drop filthy, filthy tracks on this swelling, warring, cap-melting planet.’

‘To make an impact,’ declares the magazine of the star.

‘We’ll watch Beyoncé. On stage, on her Instagram, in the form of rug-cutting, colorific phosphates behind our eyes as we sleep. And because she’s our CALIFUK queen supreme, we’ll conduct a brief, yet thought-stirring psycho-analytic exercise, conclusions of which we’ll allow you, the reader, you the citizen, the fan, to draw—following our cover star’s photo session poolside in Los Angeles,’ they add.

It’s a been a busy summer for the music Queen, who celebrated her 34th birthday last Friday.

On Saturday night she headlined the 2015 Budweiser Made in America Festival in Pennsylvania, sending fans into a frenzy with her energetic and sexy dance routines.

While husband Jay Z and her daughter Blue Ivy stayed at home in New York, Beyonce was supported by her longtime pal and former Destiny’s Child bandmate, Kelly Rowland.

Making fans aware she was in the crowd, the superstar said: ‘Shout-out to my girl Kelly, I love you. My girl Michelle, I love you.

‘If you survived bad relationships, if you survived illnesses. When it gets tough, that’s when you work harder.’

NEW! Plus-Size Supermodel Ashley Graham Poses in Sexy Lingerie for Her New Modern Boudoir Collection

Well damn, Ashley Graham!

The brunette beauty has launched a new lingerie line, aptly named Modern Boudoir Collection, with Canadian retailer Addition Elle—and she’s modeling her own sexy pieces, of course. In the first ads from the campaign, we see Ashley rocking some pretty risqué get-ups, including a black bra with suggestive cut-outs and second skin high-waist panties (to that look she adds a fur stole because, well, why not?).

Graham rose to prominence back in February, when she became the first plus-size model to be included in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Her Swimsuits for all ad widened the conversation regarding body diversity in the mainstream (which is now steering toward the male modeling industry, too). A sexy Elle U.K. editorial soon followed.

Another snap from Ashley’s sultry Modern Boudoir release features a more covered (but nonetheless smokin’ hot) bedroom-ready look. The slinky negligee with sheer lacy panels is something we need in our closets, um, immediately.

Graham recently opened up to The Coveteur about her career rise, which has helped shape a more inclusive body representation for women to encounter in mainstream retail advertising.

“I’ve faced criticism my whole career,” Graham said. “It’s come from fans, it’s come from agents, and it’s come from other models. But I think that it’s all a matter of how you handle it and I turned it all into a positive thing. Now the industry has totally changed and it’s not as much about size anymore – everyone’s really jumped on the bandwagon of not letting size be the defining factor of determining what beauty truly is.” (Here, here!)

Mother finds Kidnapped son of 15 years on Facebook

Before this week, Hope Holland hadn’t seen her son Jonathan since he was 3 years old, when his father kidnapped him and fled to Mexico, NBC reports.

But Hope kept the faith and never stopped searching for Jonathan, who just happened to be looking for her, too.

 

While Hope spent years working with child services and private investigators to try and track down 18-year-old Jonathan, it was a Facebook search that ultimately led to their reunion.

Last year, back in Mexico, Jonathan posted an old photo of him and his mother to the site in hopes that she or his older brother might find it.

And find it they did, this past January. ‘I’m happy he wanted to know me,’ Hope told NBC.

After a tearful reunion, and several hours speaking with border officials in Tijuana, the American-born teen and his mom flew back to Campbell, California to spend some much needed  quality  time   together but things  weren’t  always not   joyful  for  hope, who says she became   suicidal  after  years  of  fruitless  searching  jonathan.
