Two-time “Dancing With the Stars” champion Cheryl Burke has been tapped as the face of Angels Forever Young jeans. The brand, founded in 1997 and acquired by The Mamiye Group in 2014, offers women a range of sizes and fits in stretch denim and tops retailing for $34 to $58. Available at U.S. retailers and online at angelsjeans.com, the tops come in sizes S to XL and the denim in sizes 6 to 14. There are also select styles in plus sizes 1x, 2x and 3x for tops and 14 to 24 for denim.
The fall campaign, shot on the grounds of a Los Angeles estate by Brakhax2, captured Burke’s bubbly spirit that seems to defy age. “We are young from the inside out and age doesn’t really matter. What matters is how you feel, your self-worth, your confidence and, of course, feeling good in what you wear. Angels are for women who want to be confident while not sacrificing comfort,” she said.
Emmy-nominated professional dancer Burke has won the coveted mirror ball trophy twice on the hit ABC television show “Dancing with the Stars” with partners Emmitt Smith in season 3 and Drew Lachey in season 2. She also starred alongside Joe Jonas, Ciara and Marlon Wayans in NBC’s “I Can Do That,” a variety show that challenged celebrities to live outside their comfort zones. Her latest project, “Love on the Floor” — a live stage show which she created, produced and starred in alongside other professional dancers and Olympic and World Champion ice skaters Kristi Yamaguchi, Meryl Davis, Charlie White and Daisuke Takahashi — just made its worldwide premiere in Tokyo.
Outside of her work as a dancer, Burke has spoken at conferences and conventions about self-esteem and body image after being criticized about her weight. In 2015, Burke launched CeeBee, her own line of activewear and workout attire, on QVC.
“Her youthful vibe and energy resonates with our target consumer, and her accomplishments speak volumes,” said Nathan C. Mamiye, president of The Mamiye Group. “While known for her extraordinary dancing, the message she sends about self-esteem and healthy body image is the reason we chose Cheryl. The brand is for women who want to look great being who they are at any age, and Cheryl portrays our message flawlessly.”
