Who doesn’t want the confidence (and wardrobe) of Olivia Pope? You can actually star in ‘Scandal’ creator Shonda Rhimes’ next project — watch her video announcement by clicking below.
TV writer, producer, and creator Shonda Rhimes is the new Creative Director of Real Beauty Productions, a production company developed by Dove, the beauty brand announced on March 30.
She’s teaming with Dove to tell real stories, from real women.
Dove shares that “69 percent of women agree that they don’t see themselves reflected in advertisements, movies, television – and Real Beauty Productions will change that.”
By sharing your story at DoveRealBeauty.com, you could be chosen to be in one of Real Beauty Productions’ first films. You’ll work with Shonda DIRECTLY on set to bring your story to life. WOW! What an amazing opportunity! Watch Shonda explaining her new project in the video above.
According to Dove statistics, “71 percent of women and 67 percent of girls wish the media did a better job of portraying women of diverse physical appearance — age, race, shape and size.”
Additionally, “74 percent of women believe more needs to be done to redefine the current definition of beauty to be more inclusive.”
You’ll remember that Dove was one of the first brands to prominently feature real women in their ad campaigns — of all shapes and sizes. We love that they are continuing to be more inclusive of everyone.
I’ve cried like a baby at pretty much every Dove ad campaign in the last five years (ESPECIALLY the Choose Beautiful campaign), so I can’t wait to see what the beauty brand and Shonda create together.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Shonda Rhimes and Dove will make magic together?
