Just in case you weren't aware, photographer Carey Lynn Fruth has reminded all of us by recreating the 1999 film featuring Kevin Spacey "American Beauty" bed of roses scene (see original here) featuring women -- real woman. When I say real woman I'm referring to woman who are not photoshopped or doctored up to look like your American Barbie doll. These women range in sizes and shapes, but at the end of the day they're all beautiful.
This breathtaking project titled American Beauty goes to show that size means absolutely nothing when it comes to feeling and looking beautiful. Allowing a number to define you will eventually end up destroying you. If you are worried about what the scale says or if you're stressing over the size jeans you've recently grown out of -- these images will leave you feeling positive and hopefully you will realize that loving your body should come natural. Like Nike, 'just do it'.
