Remember the ads for Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty... the “real” women? Those photos, according to the May 12, 2008 issue of The New Yorker, were as digitally manipulated as any skinny model-festooned fashion spread.

Each brand is specifically marketed to it's audience to garner optimum product sales. It's a reimagining of Dove's original ad warning parents about the negative images advertising sends to little girls.
