Plus size model: Jari Jones
Recently, the brand-new advertising campaigns by American fashion brand Calvin Klein aroused a heated discussion.
Let’s take a look at this group of photos first:
In this group of photos, a plus-size African-American woman dressed in CK sports underwear, looking straight ahead. The entire set of pictures is filled with closeups of the female model’s upper body, which is extremely visually striking.
Jari Jones, a black transgender female model, who is the focus of the heated discussion. She was born in 1991, a passionate youth from the United States.
Jones has multiple identities. She is an actor, model, filmmaker, and LGBTQ group activist. She participated in the main competition unit of the Cannes Film Festival in France in 2019. Public information shows that she is the first transgender black female producer who took part in this film festival competition.
After CK published advertisement, supporters believed that CK intended to promote aesthetic diversification. Jari Jones’ images also reflected that the brand considered plus size women’s needs.
Opponents believed that CK was being too “politically correct” because of the pressure of the ongoing anti-racism movement in America. They insisted that the main purpose of advertising is to promote consumption, but Jones didn’t conform to the mainstream aesthetic.
So her image didn’t fit on the brand, which will make consumers lose the desire to buy CK products.
This set of commercials shot by CK precedes the “Black Live Matters” anti-racism campaign. The original intention of the ADS is to invite representatives of the LGBTQ group to participate in this marketing campaign. These ads will support The 2020 “Rainbow Pride Month” event.
Besides, CK also invited 8 other LGBTQ models of different races and skin colors to take part in a series of ads.
CK made a statement after. The theme of commercials Ads is “ProudinMyCalvins”. It supposes to encourage people to accept themselves and live their true selves.
