Watch Real People Re-Create Iconic Fashion Ads

BuzzFeed had five real people re-create iconic fashion campaigns, from Marilyn Monroe's Chanel No.5 ad to Justin Bieber's shirtless Calvin Klein underwear spread, and the result was nothing short of inspiring. Because the fashion community has come under fire for primarily using white models in its ad campaigns, the experiment featured a diverse range of ethnicities and body types. Watch the video for yourself to see what happens when regular citizens go behind the scenes of creating an ad campaign, just as they are.

And if you're in the mood to shop, check out the latest from Roberto Cavalli, SandroLucky Brand Jeans, and Sam Edelman, who featured models of colour in their fall ad campaigns.
