It’s no secret that Hollywood has a “type.” Since the earliest days of the silver screen, the typical leading lady has been a carefully crafted being—the product of professional grooming, exceptional discipline, genetic favor, specific racial heritage, and a rigorous process of elimination—think Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe. In recent years, Photoshop and CGI have been added to the mix to ensure that not a blemish or stray hair mars our heroine’s impossible beauty.

But this level of “perfection” is boring. Perfect isn’t real, and audiences don’t respond emotionally to inauthentic figures. Beauty varies from person to person, and culture to culture—narrow, idealized images are gradually becoming a thing of the past.

Today, more and more individuals are ready to say goodbye to “perfect” and embrace the infinite differences that make people so truly beautiful. But the media industry has some catching up to do. That’s why we created the Authentic Collection. We want you to find yourself in our footage—regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, or body type. In that spirit, we have gathered some of our favorite stock footage of women from around the world—to help you bring true beauty to your video projects.
