Pop culture and brands have long muddled people's perception of what constitutes beautiful and sexy, and they did it purposefully because it helped with their sales. Brands constantly hailed thin models. From maintaining a thin, almost unhealthy body to the promotion of harmful diet culture to body shaming, there's a lifetime of conditioning to undo. Body-positive activists are encouraging people to embrace their bodies, and one of them chipping away decades' worth of conditioning is Katie Sturino, a body positivity advocate and entrepreneur. Sturino has long been encouraging women to embrace their body and style instead of chasing after unrealistic and unhealthy body images, reported Bored Panda.



 

 

She has created two content series titled ‘Make My Size’ and ‘Supersize The Look’ that helps women to embrace their body and style. The latter series involved recreating styles and clothes that celebrities wore and made it to magazine covers and page threes. It's no secret that social media accounts and entertainment magazines and websites celebrate thin women and not to mention that a majority of women that become faces of brands and movies are mostly thin and fair. While recent times have seen increased representation, there is still a long way to go. As part of her series, Katie recreates the same looks that feature celebrities in magazine covers and newspapers. Her idea was to show that anyone could pull off their style and that one only needed the confidence to do so. “I see your 'but I can’t wear a crop top' and raise you 'yeah you can! and you can wear leather pants TOO!'” she wrote in a post on Instagram, and that captures the spirit of the series more than anything.
