American Eagle's New Campaign Is a Who's Who Guide to "Young America"
With the help of big-name and up-and-coming young talents, American Eagle Outfitters launched its spring #WeAllCan campaign on Wednesday with an empowering tagline: "You Can Too."
According to the brand, the new campaign gives "Young America a platform to express themselves" and "share with the world what they 'can do.'"
The young campaign stars come to AEO from all different fields, including entertainment, technology, action sports, and photography, and share their own personal stories of empowerment and strength through a series of "CANdid videos," and invite viewers to share their own stories. The faces range from The Get Down's Justice Smith and songstress Zella Day to model Fernanda Ly and social media star Cameron Dallas.
Scroll down to take a look at the campaign stars, decked out in AEO's spring line, and get to know the next generation of Hollywood (and international) elites.
