Yara Shahidi has joined forces with a few other outspoken stars for an empowering Aerie campaign. The actress stars in the brand’s latest unretouched spot with Olympian Aly Raisman, singer Rachel Platten and model Iskra, all of whom have been named AerieREAL Role Models.
“I love supporting causes and movements that help perpetuate this idea of people rising together,” Yara remarks in a statement about her new job. Gold medal-winning gymnast Aly has had an empowering week, herself. The gymnast was one of the 140 athletes to accuse the USA Gymnastic team’s doctor Larry Nassar of sexual assault.
Earlier this week, Aly confronted him with a letter that she read just before he was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison. “We’ve all been through something that in the end, will make you a stronger person,” Aly said about her participation in the Aerie campaign.
