A2. a Window to the Brand's Soul: How Models' Eyes Affect Consumers' Attitudes

Three studies tested the impact of pupil dilation on consumers’ ad attitudes. Models whose pupils are constricted (versus dilated) improved ad attitudes (Study 1). Models’ perceived attractiveness and trustworthiness mediate the effect (Study 2). Moreover, evidence of pupil mimicry was found, but it did not affect ads’ evaluations (Study 3).
