Neighbor: Our New Short Film Starring Daisy Lowe

In Neighbor, our newest short film, Daisy Lowe plays the sexy girl next door trying to reel in a cute boy, played by Jacques Naude, who lives in a building across the way. This cheeky love story features the UK model/actress putting in a good deal of effort to appear effortlessly beautiful. She aims to get the mysterious neighbor’s attention through their city window, with a few funny mishaps along the way. The short is a quirky take on the best way to find love… by simply being yourself.

What’s the silliest thing you’ve ever done for love?

Love this!! Reminds me of how I met my husband…on a plane coming home from Miami. We sat next to each other on the plane and talked the whole way home : ) I knew it was love as soon as I got off that plane…we just got married in October.

That is about the cutest video I have ever seen, LOVE it so much!

I read the description and discussion before watching the video and I was really excited by the concept. A clothing company, promoting women’s self-esteem and natural beauty? Sounds too good to be true!

Sadly, it is. The promotion of the video talks about the empowerment of being yourself– but the message portrayed in the video says more “It’s important to be beautiful,” rather than “Who you are is beautiful.”

In the very first glimpse of our female protagonist, she’s awaking gracefully with already-styled hair and makeup and a perfect, serene expression like a disney princess, wearing a sexy lacy nightie. I had expected to see “natural” beauty show up sometime, as per the discussion, but she does not appear at any point in the video wearing anything except sexy, girly, high-end clothing and perfectly styled hair and makeup. Hey, you’re allowed to style your model however y’all like. But she’s a gorgeous model. Did you think dressing her in an oversize tee with no makeup was going to detract from how beautiful she is to viewers? This hypocritical treatment of “natural” beauty says to me (and to young girls already struggling with their self-image) that even a stunning model with perfect body is still not beautiful enough. What a cute, subtle way to make girls everywhere feel horrible about themselves.

What a letdown, Free People.

I know, I know. Delete my critical comment, nobody likes a downer.
Here, have a “positive” part you can leave up if ya like.

Oh my gosh, I love the song in the background? What is it called?
