It’s crazy how many advertisements feature grown women posing like children… but in a “sexy” way. That’s some fucked up shit, right? Britney is clearly a grown woman in a sexy outfit, but she’s holding a teddy bear and her toes are pointing inward, which is very child-like. Perhaps our culture’s obsession with youth has gone a bit too far?
I’m not saying the focus of every advertisement has to be the product, but the focus of MOST advertisements with female models tends to be their body parts. Just something to be aware of and think about.
This looks like a scene from CSI, not a fashion shoot (except for the ridiculous outfit). Why would Louis Vuitton want to display their products on a girl who looks like she’s been assaulted and then discarded in the woods? Perhaps they believe that images like this are sexy, or make their products look desirable. To me, it resembles an act of violence towards women, and sadly that is not uncommon in advertising today.
This ad is obviously a couple of years old, but I think it’s hilarious. Even at their peak popularity I don’t think you could describe the Kardashians as “everyone’s favorite TV family.”
Ridiculous. If your mascara actually gives “a dramatic blast of volume and length” - as you claim it does - they why the fuck does the model need to wear fake lashes?
This is an advertisement for boots but they are pretty much the last thing you notice in this image.
Australian clothing retailer Best & Less used everyday women in their recent lingerie catalogue. It’s extremely rare to see older women in lingerie catalogues, but I think this is fantastic! And other people are loving it too: Best & Less has had an overwhelmingly positive telephone, email and social media response to the catalogue.
Imagine that… women APPRECIATE seeing women they can relate in media and advertising.
