Stacy Nadeau  

Stacy is a brave Dove “Real Woman” who stood proudly with five other women in her underwear in the summer of 2005 as part of the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty.

Involvement with the Campaign for Real Beauty:

Stacy Nadeau is a brave Dove "Real Woman" who stood proudly along with 5 other women in her underwear in the summer of 2005 as part of the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty. This campaign and the “Real Women” ads which celebrated the diversity of body shapes and sizes generated national attention when they hit billboards from coast to coast. Stacy and the other women truly brought the mission of the Campaign for Real Beauty to life which is to make more women feel beautiful everyday by widening today’s stereotypical view of beauty and inspiring women to take great care of themselves.

The campaign has received unprecedented national media coverage and has been included in more than 85 national stories! Stacy has appeared on everything from a ten minute Today show segment, to CNN and a talk show circuit normally reserved for movie stars: Ellen, Dr. Phil, Tyra and even Oprah, twice!

Stacy is excited about the Campaign for Real Beauty because…

"I can be part of attempting to finally change the media’s view on women’s body types. I have always been a curvier girl and always will be. I am proud of my body and think all women should be proud of theirs too. This is my time to encourage and help women feel great about themselves no matter what they weigh or look like. Women have surrendered to diets and insane eating habits to live up to social stereotypes for too long. It’s time that all women felt beautiful in their own skin."

Follow-On Projects:

Stacy extended her role in the Campaign for Real Beauty by participating in various speaking engagements and activities to help raise the self-esteem of young women. She has attended local Girl Scouts events in the Chicago area speaking to young women on the importance of positive self-esteem and how media can influence their views. She has participated in similar self-esteem building activities at the Chicago Boys & Girls Club as well. Stacy accepted an award, on behalf of Dove, at the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders Conference.

Numerous groups have engaged Stacy to deliver her presentation on self-esteem and real beauty, including:

Pace University

San Diego State University

Longwood University

Kansas State University

Kappa Delta National Conference

Girl Scouts of America

Boys & Girls Club
