Rise To Fame
The American boy band ‘Why Don’t We’ came into limelight on September 2016, under the guidance of music mogul David Loeffler, who became the manager of the band. Aspen Rae Loeffler is the oldest daughter of David and she was featured in a number of the band’s music videos. This gave her overnight exposure and fame as fans of the band started following her on social media. This prompted Aspen to be a bit more regular on her Instagram, since 2017. She started posting pictures of herself sporting the latest fashion trends. However, being the daughter of a media mogul and being close to an upcoming boy band didn’t always sit well with young girls who were fans of the band members. Many of them started trolling her on social media, posting negative comments, and criticizing her as a ‘trust fund baby’.
However, Aspen Rae Loeffler was able to brush off most of the criticism and started focusing more on her work. Her Instagram posts on fashion choices and how to wear bikinis and swimwear garnered thousands of views. She also started posting throwback pictures of herself with her mother and father. This endeared her to many who realized that despite her fame, she was still humble.
Aspen also started gaining some negative attention for her fitness and bikini photos in 2018. It appeared that she had lost a lot of weight and was looking too skinny. On July 10, 2018, Aspen finally addressed the issue on her Twitter. She tweeted a picture of herself in a bikini and the caption that she has been suffering from an eating disorder for two years. The disorder had resulted in her losing more than 45 pounds in two years and she was aware of how skinny she had become.
Loeffler also mentioned that she still posted swimsuit pictures, because, in spite of her struggles, she was starting to accept her body type. She preached the same to every one of her followers. This message on body positivity was applauded by her social media followers. Although Aspen continues to post swimwear pictures, she clearly mentions that being skinny to the point of anorexic should never be ‘body goals’.
The combination of her natural style, beauty, and body positive image have contributed to making Aspen Rae Loeffler one of rising Instagram models of 2018. Displaying an impressive number of 91.6k followers on Instagram, with just 90 posts, her Instagram is gradually nearing its first million.
