I just do my thing” (Hepburn). Women admired and copied Hepburn 's look because she had the femininity and glamour women wanted, but she also had her own personal style. She was influential on the fashion world and was a muse to designer Givenchy. Slip on loafers, boat neck tops, and cropped black jeans, were made popular by Hepburn. Other icons for women were Babe Paley and Bettie Paige.
Covergirl use one well-known celebrity in their commercial, Ellen DeGeneres. This would make Ellen 's fans want to buy the product.

And in most cases the celebrity does not even use the type of makeup. Ellen DeGeneres is a famous and well-known person Covergirl pays
What are the few A-list actors many people think of on the top of their heads? Ryan Gosling, Morgan Freeman, Emma Stone, Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith, and Jennifer Lawrence are some of the actors that many people today would recall. I’ve had the pleasure of watching these actors on the screen over the years as many of them take on new roles and receive amazing awards. Recently, the 89th Academy Awards added more diversity into its categories compared to the previous year, where the host Chris Rock called out Hollywood for “white-washing” the nominations. Hollywood today aims to focus on the importance of diversity in the performing arts.

The Camel’s contagious laugh has attracted viewers since the ad appeared. Many viewers leave comments under the video on YouTube, saying they watched it again and again just for fun. According to Paul Davis in “Fifteen Percent or More”, the camel commercial “is even more than the combined total number of views of 60 popular Geico commercials that aired from 2009 to 2013 with a total number of over 11 million views.” (liberty.edu) This individual strategy- humor, is effectively persuading audiences to choose Geico insurance and reinforcing its brand. Through the hilarious image in the commercial, Geico makes people happy. The message is intended to make consumers think they will be “Happier than a camel on Wednesday” if they buy Geico insurance.
A bunch of women photographers like Moon, Turberville and Arnold brought new prospectives to publications such as Vogue and Harpers Bazaar. Photographers were idolizing what seemed to be flawless beauty on models during advertising campaigns and television commercials. Today, one of the most impressive change in fashion photography is the new strategy that the fashion marketers have learned. The use of digital images allowed for escaping everyday reality and enter a world of high fashion, celebrities and beauty. Even though the photographs may not make it onto a magazine, they were view and enjoyed by scrolling down social media feeds allowing the viewer to like and share.
Countless amounts of videos played and of course everyone wanted to be just like all the famous stars they saw, from Madonna’s lace gloves to Snoop Dogg’s dreads. However, some of the time people didn’t even like the song, they were only intrigued by the outfits or hairstyles they saw. Another controlling factor on how the public dressed was a fitness craze, people were trying to improve their lives and they thought this was the way to achieve their goal. Also, they wanted to be rebellious against hippies so they started punk fashion. There were obviously many influences on fashion in the 1980’s and people had to figure out which fashion craze they were going to follow.
A clear example of this is found in Oprah Winfrey, actress and talk show host. She has a massive influence on the American public, as seen when she announced that should would be buying stock in Weight Watchers. Nathan Bomey stated that the stock price of Weight Watchers increased by 105 percent in a matter of days (2015). Oprah’s influence had also extended to politics, when she endorsed Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary. Garthwaite and Moore estimated that “Oprah’s endorsement was worth about 1 million votes for Obama”.
Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal,” which I believe holds true in the world of fashion. Designers are the creators of the trends we see, but they would not be put into the spotlight without those who popularize them. That would be the job of a trendsetter. There have been many fashion trendsetters and icons throughout history such as Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy however, an icon who I believe to be important is Diane Keaton. Diane’s style has influenced many women over time and has given them the confidence to broaden their ways of self-expression and not be afraid to break gender norms.
Feminism is a word that has caused lots of controversy in our society. Some say that feminism is unnecessary and hateful towards men. However, Merriam Webster defines feminism as “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes” (Merriam Webster). Feminism isn’t about hating men, it’s about empowering women. As a group of people who have experienced discrimination, rape/rape culture, and hate for hundreds of years , women have the right to fight for equality.
People of all ages will be intrigued by the story of former Gold-medallist, turned reality star, turned face of the transgender community. The older generation who watched and rooted Bruce on to win the Gold back in 76’ as well as our newer generation who may have only known him as Kim Kardashian’s step-father. The intended audience is meant for teens and older. I believe that Vanity Fair targeted the mainstream population in order to grasp as much attention from this cover as possible. They reimagined a popular figure in order to reach new limits of participation.
This message, coupled with the actual presentation and the interpretations causes severely negative effects on women. Physical health, mental health, and how women view themselves and their sexuality are all negatively impacted from the presentation of women in the media. With this continuing for years on end, there is only an increase in the negative outcomes. The increasing number of health related issues and practices employed by women in order to try and achieve unrealistic standards has made this issue a crucial matter in today’s society. In order to try and combat the negative messages and effects resulting, various companies have created campaigns in order to send more positive messages pertaining to the aesthetics of women’s bodies.

The first Kid President video that the duo posted in July of 2012 got 200 views.
The body positivity movement is something that has impacted millions of women in an overwhelmingly positive way; allowing women to love themselves as they are instead of letting their insecurities tear them apart. The media has even begun to promote body positivity, self love, and more gender neutral representation of women. Television shows such as “Orange is the New Black” and “The Fosters” help defy the stereotype of heterosexuality that young women are exposed to, allowing LGBT women to feel less ostracized due to their lack of presence in the media. Functionalism is working to tear down the ideological walls that surround binary gender identity. Now more than ever women are rising up against the status quo and are establishing themselves as the head of their household, earning higher wages, and choosing not to have children.
