To celebrate Mother’s Day, we hosted an extra-special Real Talk in NYC with #AerieREAL Role Models Molly Burke, Brenna Huckaby, Jenna Kutcher… and their mamas! Find out what your role models were like when they were younger, when their moms knew they would do big things and the best advice their moms gave them.

Only have a few minutes? See some of our fave moments from the day.

“No matter what, it’s been my mom and I against the world.”
