The most important element is the photo in the center of the article .The company purposely puts this assuming that an image of good looking teenage girls in swimsuits will instill jealousy within the reader and tell their audience that society expect the to look that way “swimsuits say everything” and the only alternative to do so is to have Shape. In addition it positions it right in the center of the text and its quite big in size, therefore increasing the amount of jealously induced within the reader .It also puts a picture of its product in the article, however its effect is influenced by the previous one. Once people see the photo of the three girls in swimsuits, it invokes jealously within them and makes them feel that they should have Shape, therefore the photo of the product probably get ingrained in their minds and when they visit the supermarket they’d easily identity the product and purchase that over
Scarlett is also looking down upon the twins as if she were superior to them. The costume choices must be recognized during the first scene. Scarlett is dressed very lady-like in an outfit that fits the time period of the pre civil war south perfectly.

It is easily one of his most famous paintings. Klimt hoped his art would symbolize something beyond what shows on the canvas, and in this painting he wanted to symbolize love and not only the power of it, but also the way that it can go as far as consume the subjects identities under it’s hold. The exaggerated amount used of gold leaf is the most obvious aspect in the painting and it clearly shows the inspiration of ancient byzantine art and the golden mosaics. The subject of the painting is exactly what the title implies, a kiss between a male and a female. What’s most captivating in this painting is not all the gold but rather the subtle details Klimt has included with great attention to them.

Moss is credited with popularizing the 90’s waif “heroin chic” look, fueling eating disorder rumors. While she has never confirmed any rumors, (and has consistently always been small, suggesting that her low BMI may very well be the cause of genetics) there is still room for doubt. Numerous anorexia and bulimia sufferers have been known to use Kate’s quote “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” as motivation and spend hours fawning over how damn-near skeletal she looks in some pictures. According to Thomas Hine, “Packages are an inescapable part of modern life. They are omnipresent and… many packages are designed so that people will respond to them even if they’re not paying attention” (Hine 119).
In the twenty first century there are numerous amounts of women who try to dress and act like celebrities they look up to; this was similar to the early twentieth century fad of the Gibson Girl. Charles Dana Gibson, a gifted artist, created the public image for what he thought should be the standard woman of the upcoming twentieth century. Charles Gibson began drawing silhouettes as a child and later created the Gibson Girl in the 1890s (The Gibson Girl). The new image for women altered as well as challenged the typical feminine figure (Andonovska).
