Brooke Shields models a bikini for Power Suit size-inclusive campaign
Brooke Shields was considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, and her time in the limelight started when she was just 12.
Shields was a child-star starting her career with Louis Malle's controversial film Pretty Baby in 1978. The movie Blue Lagoon made her the sex symbol of her generation, but Shield confesses that despite her fame, her self-esteem was low.
The constant scrutiny of the public and the pressure she felt to be 'perfect' made her critical of her own body.
Shields, 52, joined the body-positive swimsuit brand Swimsuits For All for it’s latest size-inclusive Power Suit campaign, reported People.com.
"At 52 years old, I finally feel comfortable and proud of the all the hard work I’ve put into my body. I can say that I feel confident being in my own skin, showing my body and not hiding it.”

Shields revealed that she feels better in a bikini today than she ever did in her twenties. The slow growth of her confidence in herself as a woman and as a professional, and her later experience of becoming a mother empowered her.
Shields explained that she “didn’t do anything special” to prepare for the bikini shots. She eats sensibly and drinks lots of water, makes sure she always gets a good night's sleep and maintain a healthy active life style.
Shields admits that her daughters, Rowan, 15 and Grier, 12, who teach her about Instagram and keep her on the edge of trends, are a driving force in her life.
Shields shared the set of the campaign shoot with Ashley Graham and Angela Simmons among others.
The aim of the campaign is to show that all women can look great in a swimsuit, no matter what their size, or their shape.
