As a senior studying advertising at the University of Illinois, the Dove Evolution commercial has been well-respected in many of my classes. Their "Campaign for Real Beauty" launched in 2004 after a survey revealed how few women regard themselves as beautiful, and that most regard true beauty as something they cannot hope to attain. If this is not enough, it is even more alarming to discover that many "perfect" models do not exist. Rather, most models have been digitally altered. Extensively. Watch their enlightening commercial to see for yourself.
