Brooke Shields is finally feeling comfortable in her own skin and is proud to show it off — in a bright red bikini — to the whole world.
The iconic model/actress and mother of two girls (age 12 and 15) is starring with model Ashley Graham and other women of all ages and professions in new ads for Swimsuits For All, a swimsuit company. Their objective is to encourage women to feel as confident and powerful in a swimsuit as they would in a business suit.
“Working on this campaign with Swimsuits For All was inspiring to me because each one of these women is remarkable," said Shields in a news release. "Growing up under such scrutiny led me to feel insecure about my looks. Over time, I was able to find confidence in myself through my work, my passions, my network of strong female role models and my journey through motherhood. And now, after 50 years in the spotlight, I can confidently say that my 'Power Suit' is being in my own skin, showing my body and not hiding it. I loved being able to share that with these women who have also come to that realization."
Shields told People magazine that despite decades as a model and the face of elite brands like Calvin Klein, she is more at ease in a bikini now than she was in her 20s. “At 52 years old, I finally feel comfortable and proud of all the hard work I’ve put into my body. I can say that I feel confident being in my own skin, showing my body and not hiding it,” she said.
