MODEL SPOTLIGHT: AMERICAN EAGLE | AERIE & CHELSEA

Changing the Face of Beauty is thrilled to acknowledge and thank premiere national brands American Eagle and AERIE for including models Rajee Aerie and Chelsea Werner in recent advertising and media platforms!

Rajee, an up-and-coming model and actress, was first featured in Changing the Face of Beauty’s exclusive “Couch Series” video platform. Watch the video here. She described the lack of representation and active pursuit of models with disabilities in casting for modeling and acting jobs.

In addition to modeling, Chelsea is a 4X US SPECIAL OLYMPICS GYMNASTICS CHAMPION and 2X WORLD CHAMPION. Her life story was featured on the “Today Show”.” She’s filmed an international campaign for H&M in Havana, Cuba and also walked in NYFW in September 2016 and LAFW in October 2016. Chelsea is looking forward to advocating for more inclusion in the Fashion Industry in 2018 and beyond!

I would love for a little girl or teenager to see me on TV, and be able to relate to me…

– Rajee Aerie

    Congrats to Rajee and Chelsea! Both of your stories are amazing! Thanks for the inspiration! I’ll be sharing this story with my daughter. And way to go AE and AERIE for taking a stand for what’s right. The world will be a better place for all the good that is going on here. ?
