Aesthetic perfection is for sure the top appeal, but in a different way than it’s usually perceived. Being aesthetically “perfect” has many different meanings, from the perfect face shape to the perfect hair texture and it has many different meanings all over the world. Usually when commercials show someone who looks “perfect”, they have a full face of up, their hair is done, and their look like a typical supermodel. The case for sketches is much different as the women don’t physically change their appearance in order to look perfect, they’ve changed their mindset on how they view themselves. The fact that they mentally realize how beautiful they truly are is what helps to perceive themselves as Aesthetically perfect.
At first glance, the advertisement seems like it is only promoting the brand Aerie, but with further inspection the viewer will also see that it is also promoting the Body Positive Movement. The advertisement uses the feelings of relatability, confidence, and empowerment to appeal emotionally to the viewer. Viewers will have a greater chance of remembering an ad if they can have an emotional connection to it. The brand Aerie is mainly targeted to younger females, which makes it easier to strike an emotional response with this population while promoting something like the Body Positive Movement. In this time period, it is common for girls to feel insecure about themselves since they are maturing and getting used to their bodies.
According to Slater and Tiggemann (2015), “media’s constant focus on female bodies and body parts seamlessly aligns viewers with an implicit sexualizing gaze” (p.377). These images can cause adolescent girls to view their image as bad and do things in order to achieve the “perfect body”. The media has led adolescent girls to be concerned with their weight and body shape, which has led many to dieting and abusing their body to be the perfect
In contrast to past gender stereotypes, they argue that girls should be strong, independent, and intelligent. Orenstein takes a second wave feminism approach, meaning females are just as capable as males. She references how she commonly writes about feminism and warning parents of a “preoccupation of body and beauty” in order to pull for a change in society (327). The beauty standards give women an impossible set of goals deterring their confidence. In addition to unrealistic standards, Orenstein is alarmed by the growing popularity of princesses because she views them as “retrograde role models” (329).

Before the 1900s, the Rubensque women painted by Rafeal and Renoir dominated the ideal female body image. The Bathers, painted by Pierre Auguste Renoir in 1887 was also an example of what the ideal female body looked like. Women having extra weight reflected wealth and beauty then. In the early 1800s, women preferred having pale skin because it showed that they spent less time outdoors working, which reflected wealth. Also women at that time were expected to have small hands and feet as a sign of their feminism, otherwise they would be considered as masculine-looking.
The curvier you were in the waist the more desirable you were. The essay “A Woman’s Beauty”, asserted that women are taught to see their bodies in parts, and to evaluate each part separately. This is why women who probably already had nice legs, arms and other body features wore uncomfortable and dangerous corsets forcing the waist to shrink unnaturally, shifting internal organs in order to obtain an hourglass or figure 8 shape which then was
By Ariel Levy’s definition, “female chauvinism” and “raunch culture” describe women who believe men are inferior and women objectifying other women and themselves, respectively. While females, to a certain extent, have always and will always be objectified by the media, it has not become more pervasive in recent years. If anything, the sexualization and objectification of women has been mediated due to advancements in gender equality. There has been a gradual switch in cultural expectations of women from codependent lady who needs a strong man to take care of her to competent woman who can take care of herself. This role transformation, while seemingly so, is not a kick in the ribs to men.
These are also the pictures that are being shown to teenagers at a time of their lives that they are particularly susceptible to peer pressure and looking good(Tabitha Farrar). They see other women who look different than they do and think to themselves why can 't i look like that. The idea of the “Perfect Women”, long wavy hair, a nice slim body, practically a barbie doll, is what causes these women to think such harsh thoughts about themselves. Some women will begin to think that they are ugly, unacceptable, substandard, the list goes on. This idea that every girl needs to look the same, like a doll, to be beautiful is absurd, and the people who enforce such thoughts are just as damaging.
