She is adored and successful even when it is hinted that she is not fully white.
Thus, the ideal look for females was a natural, simple, and soft, thin, but curved body. Joan Crawford, a successful and well-known American actress, exemplified this new look desired by society. She had the perfect characteristics that society wanted in a woman during that period: hard-working, beautiful, with soft curves, and very feminine. Therefore, her pictures were widely spread in weekly magazines and on the screen. While, other actresses, like Marlene Detriech did not fit with the simple ideal female image then because of their erotic looks, which prevented them from being used in women's
Marilyn Monroe not only influenced Hollywood stars, but also women in general. Despite having a rough childhood, Marilyn did not let that stop her from dreaming big and becoming a star. With the way that Marilyn carried herself in her modeling, acting, and in her life as a whole, she inspired others to see things in ways that were unique and different.

If you’ve seen the movie “Mean Girls”, you know that the story revolves around a group of girls that are considered the “elite popular group”.

The one word you can describe Ava Gardner is sultry, which is what everyone categorized her beauty under.

This film is produced and released at a time where we see gender roles start to shift and change, and feminist thoughts first begin to develop.
