The scene: The Mondrian South Beach on Saturday morning.
Mae Whitman, costar of upcoming high school comedy The Duff, joined celebrity DJ Hannah Bronfman and fashion blogger Sincerely Jules to take a ginormous selfie with thousands of local women to celebrate beauty.
The picture was organized by Aerie SWIM to send the message that real ladies don’t need no stinking photoshop! Mae, Hannah and Julie pumped up the crowd on the ground while photographer Gray Malin shot #LoveYourREALSelfie images via helicopter.
According to a press release, “By challenging supermodel standards, aerie is poised to spark a conversation with consumers about the true meaning of beauty, because we believe the real you is sexy. No supermodels. No retouching.”
The event coordinated with the impending release of Aerie’s new swim collection.
