Dove Real Beauty Productions and Creative Director Shonda Rhimes have come together to release a second film titled "Meet Kylee" to illustrate that many women cannot relate to traditional standards of feminine beauty.
Since launching in March 2017, Dove Real Beauty Productions has aimed to shift the power of storytelling from Hollywood into the hands of real women to ensure all women and girls can see their #RealBeauty represented in media and culture. A 100% female crew joined Shonda Rhimes to create the new three-minute film following Kylee's journey to discovering her own beauty by bucking conventions and cutting her hair into a bold style that truly suits her.
"I spend my life writing women as we truly are – human. That's why I'm proud to work with Dove Real Beauty Productions. We don't need to be told we can be smart or strong or flawed. And we don't need to be told we come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. But we do need to see ourselves reflected that way," said Shonda Rhimes. "Every time you look at your screen and see a woman portrayed just as she is, sharing her humanity, being boldly herself, you are looking at someone beautiful. I thought of this when I met my new friend Kylee Howell. Her beauty shines through in everything she is and everything she does. Which is why I was excited to work with her to bring her story to life in this new film."
