Dove commissions Melanie Acevedo to shoot an ad campaign that challenges India to rethink common beauty ideals

Since 2004, Dove has been working to advance a broader, more inclusive definition of beauty, and its latest campaign is continuing that effort in India, where the ideals are particularly narrow. “In fact, our new research suggests 76 percent of Indian women believe that in today’s society, it is critical to meet certain beauty standards,” Victoria Sjardin, senior global brand director of Dove Masterbrand, told Adweek.

The new campaign features print ads shot by Melanie Acevedo showing glowing portraits of women of different ages and body types, each of them defining beauty in her own terms.

“This campaign is designed to encourage India to embrace its diversity in beauty, and spark change against the variety of pressures and influences that are keeping a narrow beauty ideal alive,” Sjardin explained to Adweek. “Our hope is to genuinely start a conversation about expanding the beauty ideal and embracing the varieties of beauty that come from a country with 631 million women, 29 states and 22 languages.”

Four strobes and a foam core v-flat designed to feel like the room is filled with the real thing; one head in the window, one head in the master bathroom, one @elinchrom_ltd octobank and this @profotoglobal umbrella to wrap the light around the room.” Photo and text courtesy @aspictures.
