Q12. Exploring Effects of Perceived Authenticity of Instagram Models on Aad and Buying Intentions

This study suggests that consumers’ ad evaluations and purchase intention are highest when a plus size, not-airbrushed model is featured on a brand’s Instagram account. More importantly, this study confirms that perceived authenticity plays a significant mediating role for the effects of model-image modification and body size on ad evaluations.
