Real Beauty SketchesDoveWomen are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% ofwomen around the world consider themselves beautiful.Dove conducted a social experiment to prove thatwomen are more beautiful than they think, as part of itscontinuing focus on "real" beauty in its advertising.They employed FBI-trained forensic sketch artist GilZamora, who usually sketches people described by crimeeyewitnesses. First he drew portraits of womenaccording to their own description, and then he drewportraits of those same women according to strangerswho had met them on the day.The differences between how they describe themselvesand how others describe them are immediately striking.The video is poignant and really touches a nerve withthe women involved.The Real Beauty Sketches campaign is online atdove.com/realbeautysketches and is being promoted onTwitter with the hashtag #wearebeautiful.
