“After 50 years in the spotlight, I can confidently say that my ‘Power Suit’ is being in my own skin, showing my body and not hiding it.” Brooke Shields tweeted this announcement alongside a picture of herself in the new Swimsuits for All campaign, appearing this week. The 52-year-old mom of two is part of the “Power Suit” bikini campaign.
The superstar model and star of Suddenly Susan freely admits being insecure about her looks for a very long time. In a “People” interview Shields said for years she felt “disconnected” from her body. Hard though that it might be for fans of her work, or just those of us who assume models are always so sure of themselves.
Brookes is not the only famous face (and body) featured in the body-positive swimsuit brand’s size-inclusive Power Suit campaign. She joins four other women-professional swimmer Pat Gallant Charette, reality star Angela Simmons, nurse practitioner Katie Duke, and fellow super model Ashley Graham. Graham has lent her face and body to Swimsuits for All’s campaigns plenty of times in the past. Showcasing as much a diversity of body type, professions and ages-the ladies here range in age from 30-67-Shields is front and center of the new ads, wearing a power red bikini.
Just two months ago Shields hit Instagram with some black and white bikini pics that set the blog o’sphere on fire. She was vacationing on Harbour Island when she revealed her willowy frame and tight tummy for the world to see. But really, this stunning lady has been catching our eye since her teen years modeling for Calvin Klein in some controversial (at the time) jeans adds, as well as her turn as a 12-year-old prostitute in the movie Pretty Baby.
There seems to be no stopping Brookes Shields, no matter what age she is and regardless of what she is wearing.
