I hope you are all having an amazing week so far, if you’ve been following along on my social media you will know that I was just in New York City with DOVE celebrating their global 60th anniversary! I couldn’t wait to get started on writing this piece and sharing my take on the events, I couldn’t wait to get behind the scenes and show you all the beautiful imagery that renowned photographer Mario Testino captured of all of these women of all ages, their real beauty without any photo touching or distortion! I am truly in love with this Dove campaign and so proud to be a part of telling you all about it. The full Dove Pledge is available online at Dove.ca as of March 2 and the ‘Dove Real Beauty Showcase’ including the photographs shot by Mario Testino are available online at Dove.ca. “The way Dove empowers women to celebrate their own unique beauty has long resonated with me. I have always taken the same approach with my pictures. A photographer has a choice – they can take a picture and make it about themselves by using avant-garde techniques, sometimes capturing the weakness in women, or they can choose …

I’ve always struggled with my self confidence. One of the reasons I have loved maintaining LoveBrownSugar over the years is because it gave me a platform to connect with you guys, my audience, to share my personal style evolution.

It's EVERY woman's year of "yes."
Beauty blogger Christina Brown puts Dove to the test against her favorite high-end beauty bar. The beauty bar disappoints by dissolving the paper that represents human skin, proving Dove to be the gentler choice.
Acceptance is one thing. Asking women to visually categorize their bodies is quite another.

The Internet has slammed the latest Dove Real Beauty idea: bottles with different 'body shapes'. But did they really get it so wrong? Or is branding changing?
They asked me to test the Dove Beauty Bar for just 7 days and see for myself just how it would stack up against my other more expensive bar cleansers.

Attending the movie screening at the Urbanworld Film Festival, Hudson, 38, shimmered in a silver Stella McCartney one-shoulder dress. Meanwhile Fujikawa opted for an all-black ensemble.
Marshall is an upcoming biopic about Thurgood Marshall and his rise to the United States Supreme Court.

When asked in Cosmopolitan‘s October issue about her post-workout beauty secrets, Hudson’s humorously replied: “Shaving your head. Cuts down on time spent post-sweat.”
Hudson and Fujikawa made their red carpet debut in May after attending the premiere of Hudson’s mother’s movie Snatched in Westwood, California, together.
Romance rumors first started after the pair were spotted kissing during an L.A. lunch date in March.
Since then, the couple has been spotted all over the world. From going for a night out in N.Y.C. to celebrating Hudson’s birthday together in L.A., and even to Cambodia, where the couple took a trip together in June.
It appears Fujikawa fits right into Hudson’s hipster lifestyle. “Kate’s a free spirit who has always been attracted to musicians,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “But Danny also appeals to her because he is talented, bright and cosmopolitan like she is.”
Added the source at the time, “Kate’s enjoying herself. At this point it’s not serious.”
Marshall will hit theaters on Oct. 13.
All soap bottles—I mean, women—are beautiful as they are.

Tune in for the first film from Dove Real Beauty Productions featuring Cathleen Meredith! Today, Dove premiered “Meet Cathleen,” the first film from Real Beauty Productions – a project with Shonda Rhimes at the helm as Creative Director and starring Real Woman, Cathleen Meredith. We were so excited to see the 30 second teaser during the inspiring keynote last week – and now we are thrilled to share the full film with this community. We’ve talked before about the new collaborative content studio that Dove launched this spring to give women and girls a platform to share their stories that expand the definition of beauty – and now we’re excited to see the first release in action! In this first film, Cathleen shares her journey of discovering, through her passion for dance, an important self-love relationship that she didn’t even know was missing. It was through watching herself perform in videos with her dance group, Fat Girls Dance, that Cathleen started loving and embracing her body. Dove is proud to give Cathleen a platform to share her story and message– “I don’t think we know how much we are told that there is something wrong with our bodies. I think beauty […]

Dove Celebrates Decades of Women Redefining Beauty on the 60th Anniversary Of Its Iconic Beauty Bar
It's been 10 years since Dove launched its “Campaign for Real Beauty”—a stark series of ads that were radical and simple in equal measure—featuring lovely, normal-sized women who didn’t need Photoshop to look radiant. The ads, which ran in 2004 and 2005, lacked any screed about the pressures that come with being a woman in a visual culture that’s awash in creatively lit, digitally manipulated images of dangerously thin models. The folks behind the campaign simply let us feel our own shock at seeing women with normal curves and natural faces being celebrated for their beauty in a national advertisement. Dove didn't stop there. The soap maker added rocket fuel to the conversation in 2006, when its time-lapse "Evolution" video went viral. The movement to expose marketers' use of trickery to convince us that we're failing if we don't have flawless skin and breathtaking bodies was here to stay. Significant progress has been made since Dove's campaign: The American public, the blogosphere, and the Twitterverse now routinely call out magazine publishers and marketers for digitally altering images of girls and women to shrink their bodies, smooth their faces, and otherwise morph them to fit an unrealistic, narrow ideal of beauty. The pace is quickening. In just the past few months, there's been even more progress and a few moments that drove the dialogue forward. 1. The more bare skin a campaign flaunts, the more Photoshop it typically gets. But American Eagle says its new campaign for the Aerie line of lingerie will not use any altered images of models. Instead, “real” girls and women can upload unretouched photos of themselves to a photo gallery. Sure, it’s pretty screwed up that selling underwear using real photos of gorgeous, skinny young girls (instead of digitally improved gorgeous, skinny young girls) is seen as groundbreaking. But moving away from the idealized versions of women who don't exist is a footstep Dove took, and the clothier is now following its lead. “It’s great that we’re beginning to break that down,” said Heather Arnet, executive director of the Women & Girls Foundation, of the fakeries that line the glossies. 2. Forever Yours Lingerie didn't stop working with model Elly Mayday when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last year. It featured beautiful shots of her with surgical scars unhidden and no wig or digital fakery to hide the baldness that resulted from her cancer treatment. Rather than looking like something’s missing, Mayday’s baldness comes across as strong and sexy. It’s empowering for the rest of us to see a woman outside the beauty mold we’ve been sold for so long—and to find ourselves aspiring to emulate her sexy confidence and appeal. (Forever Yours also gets points for raising money toward Mayday’s medical expenses.) 3. A new time-lapse video released by Hungarian pop star Boggie shows her singing a pop song called “Nouveau Parfum” while being Photoshopped, a fresh take on Dove's "Evolution" that's amplified by the resigned expression on her face. As the song unfolds, pieces of her disappear and are overwritten: Boggie’s eyes, like everyone else’s, aren’t exactly symmetrical. So one is deleted, then replaced by an exact copy of the other. Not a single square inch of her face or hair is left untouched. 4. Earlier last month during the Golden Globes, actor Diane Keaton took the stage to honor Woody Allen, her tousled hair and menswear-chic outfit reminding us of the trend she set when Annie Hall hit theaters in 1977. It was also clear on high-definition screens across America that at 68, she's got (oh, the horror!) lots of lines on her gorgeous face. When her speech ended, the network cut to a commercial break featuring Keaton selling L'Oréal cosmetics without a line on her digitally enhanced face, seemingly sporting the skin of a 25-year-old. Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook quickly lit up with scorn. That social media response is valuable, Arnet says, because younger women and girls are active on Instagram and Twitter and are participating in those conversations. 5. Former Cosmopolitan editor Leah Hardy drew attention for admitting that during her tenure the magazine routinely Photoshopped out the protruding bones of super skinny models to keep readers from seeing how emaciated the models really were. Since that admission surfaced, before-and-after comparisons of bone-thin models and their healthier-looking altered images have been popping up around the Web. Apparently the world’s top fashion magazines, despite the huge budgets at their disposal, cannot find a single woman on the planet who isn’t either too thin or too fat for their liking. It’s further reinforcement of the conclusion we’d love to share with every tween girl who’s just beginning to notice her appearance: The elusive “perfection” that every cosmetic company and clothing retailer is trying to sell you does not exist. 6. Mindy Kaling might not have minded, but many other people did: When Elle magazine published covers for its February 2014 issue featuring Kaling, readers and pundits immediately questioned why Kaling's cover was a black-and-white close-up rather than the full-color, full-body shots of the other (skinnier and more "conventionally" beautiful) actors. That's the key: We've begun to make a habit of questioning how women are depicted and what tools are being used to change or edit their appearance for public consumption. Yes, the visual landscape is still awash with altered images, surgically altered models, and the pressure to be thinner, younger, and closer to the narrow beauty ideal that so much marketing pushes on us.
