Studies show that looking through fashion magazines make women feel bad about their bodies. This campaign for the National Eating Disorder Information Centre, targeted fashion leaders and marketers who promote a dangerously thin look, and was designed to shock them into thinking twice before casting a skeletal model or indulging in photoshop excess.

 

Although this campaign ran in 2010, it picked up steam again years later when a company with a mission to empower girls posted a photo of the campaign on Facebook. The post was shared 9K times.
