Emma Roberts Stars in Aerie’s Unretouched Campaign

It's all about that #NoFilter. Actress Emma Roberts, 24, looks radiant in Aerie's unretouched photos in the newest award winning #aerieREAL campaign. What you see is what you get—and we have to say, it's absolutely gorgeous.

Posing in cozy knits, lacy bralettes and cute lounge wear, Roberts glows in this empowering photo shoot as she embraces her natural beauty without the pressure of Hollywood "perfection." Last Friday, Roberts celebrated the campaign's launch at an intimate dinner with friends like Lea Michele and Jaime King.

"I feel like people think actors aren't real people and you can just say whatever you want about them and it doesn't matter," Roberts told People. "I guess it hurts my feelings, so I try not to read that stuff. It makes me more mad when I see it written about my friends or, like, my sister. My sister is 14 and she didn't want me to post a photo of [us] because she said people were saying mean things about her. That really broke my heart."

The fact that a successful young starlet is confident to pose without any Photoshop help gives a more realistic and approachable vibe to photo spreads that usually causes bouts of insecurity, which Roberts also feels herself.

"I just love the message behind it. I thought the whole idea was so inspiring. Yes, I'm an actress, but I'm also a real girl. Seeing [Photoshopped] ads, you get kind of bummed. You're like, 'Ugh, do these people really look like that?'"

Nevertheless, this was an opportunity for Roberts to embrace her beauty inside and out and in turn encourage other girls out there to see that real beauty doesn't have to be flawless.
