Aeropostale Changes Things Up and Cast Real Teens as Models
How cool would it be to model for your favorite clothing store? Eight teens from all over the country were picked to do just that for the teen fashion store, Aeropostale.
Aeropostale wanted to have real teens as their models instead of professionals because real teens are the ones who wear their clothing. The eight teens were picked out from 6000 others via the Aéropostale's 'Real Teens 2010' contest held earlier this year. They were chosen for being everyday teens who stand out in awesome ways.
Aero liked that they winners showed leadership, dedication and passion in everything they do. The selected teens have done missionary work, founded a non-profit, run a marathon and set up a youth sports team. They're also pretty real too and play the saxophone in the school band, enjoy hanging out with friends and are making plans for college...just like the majority of you.
