One of the staffers, Kristin, chose to post as Gigi Hadid in the Tommy Hilfiger ad of fall 2016. ‘I was actually shocked that the photo turned out as well as it did -- I kept asking if it was photoshopped. I’ve heard so many times that ‘my body isn’t really capable of doing beautiful fashion things’ that seeing myself actually do it felt like a mistake,’ she said.

Kelsey Rose, another girl from the staff chose to recreate Agent Provocateur fall 2016 ad with Abbey Lee Kershaw. ‘When I was all glammed up and finally got on set with the couch, I felt sexy and I felt empowered. I realized that just because I didn’t have the body of the model in the image didn’t mean I was less fierce.’
