It’s safe to conclude that teen model Barbie Ferreira has made a big impact in 2016. Earlier in the year she showed us that she’s got nothing to hide, when taking part in a Photoshop-free ad campaign called #AerieREAL. And now she has returned- this time teaching us all to be confident in ourselves, while calling out the fashion industry for its awful double standards.
This all started when the 19-year-old posted a photo of her stretch marks to Instagram, sticking with the theme of having nothing to hide and being proud of one’s appearance. While many of her fans were quick to praise her for the courage she showed, she posted again later that day to discuss an incident that happened to her on the set of a photoshoot.
