Harvey Nichols Ad Says You Should Reclaim Your Walk of Shame

British department store Harvey Nichols had a cute idea for their holiday 2011 ad, which was designed to show off their party dresses. The ad is all about the Walk of Shame and features girls walking home in the morning wearing last night's dresses and looking cold. But that's not the end: they urge you to own your awesomeness and turn the walk of shame into a "stride of pride."

Also, as AdWeek points out, they did a good job with body diversity in this commercial.
