American Eagle

The INSIDER Summary:

American Eagle’s new ad campaign is completely free of Photoshop.

The retailer continues to be praised for not editing its models.

Its latest denim campaign, #ICAN, features models including Iskra Lawrence, who is against using Photoshop, and Halima Aden, a popular hijab-wearing model.

American Eagle is occasionally in the news for offering impossibly small sizes

, especially when it comes to jeans


Given its limited sizes, you might be surprised to learn that the retailer doesn’t use Photoshop on its models.

While it’s not a new decision, the brand’s latest ad campaign (which we first spotted on PopSugar

) makes an effort to show its clothes on more realistic bodies. 

The airbrush-free photos for its fall 2017 denim campaign, #ICAN

, feature models like Iskra Lawrence. The model has spoken out against using Photoshopped images

 in the past, and is an ambassador for American Eagle’s sister store, lingerie company Aerie

, which also uses unretouched photos.

Iskra Lawrence is an ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association.

It’s worth noting that, while these images aren’CHILES T Shirt Hoodies Sunfrog Photoshopped, they seem to be posed in careful lighting, and — like American Eagle’s sizes — don’t exactly represent a wide range of body types.

At least the images are slightly

more realistic. It’s a step in the right direction, albeit a small one.
