I have been waiting for the day to share this with all with you! At the end of March a producer from The Today Show contacted me about being a part of a continuation of the segment they did back at the beginning of the year called “Love your Selfie: Reclaiming Beauty”. They invited me to talk about the changing face of models. What an honor to share our feelings on why it is so important to include models of all abilities in our general advertising.
So on April 12th The Today Show came to my studio and filmed the most amazing session with Matilda Jane Clothing. I talked about this shoot here and I promise you the stars aligned that day and these beautiful faces defined what BEAUTY IS.
It was such an emotional day. To have The Today Show here not only filming but witnessing the relationships that were blooming, the clothes, the set and the people all together was electrifying. I promise I am not exaggerating. It was exactly what Steve and I imagined the day we started the Facebook page “Changing the Face of Beauty”.
So I am so excited to share with all of you that Grace and I will be leaving for New York on April 28th to appear on The Today Show April 29th in the 9:00 hour. The footage from the shoot is being cut and I am so excited that all those beautiful faces that lit up the room that Saturday morning will be shining stars on The Today Show!
They are what this is about, finding beauty in all abilities. It is about their future. All these kids have something to offer to the world and I firmly believe advertising is the vehicle to help the world recognize those abilities.
