Danielle Brooks is helping reshape body acceptance and slaying while doing so in a new Lane Bryant lingerie ad. And she’s not the only one stripping down. Azealia Banks takes it all off for a hot shot. Check it inside…
Danielle Brooks is a curvy girl who loves her body and it makes us love her even more.
The “Orange Is The New Black” star is featured in a new Lane Bryant lingerie campaign, “#ImNoAngel, and she’s totally changing the game. Gone are the days where you have to be a size zero to be considered beautiful.
The new ad, which debuted during the EMMYs, features Danielle alongside a group of curvy, fly chicks – including Ashley Graham, Denise Bidot and Candice Huffine – who open up about their insecurities. In spite of struggling with different parts of their bodies, they love their imperfections.
"The truth is, the spirit of #ImNoAngel has been ingrained in all of our major brand initiatives since the campaign's initial debut in 2015. Empowering women will never go out of style," Lane Bryant CMO Brian Beitler said in a press release.
And we’re all about women empowerment around these parts, especially with as much ish we have to deal with on a daily. It’s nice to see someone uplift and hold us up on a pedestal for once.
