McRobbie highlights an important part of the production of magazines and magazine culture; many women’s magazines advocate feminism in their branding and persona in order to align the magazine’s brand with their target audience; to sell the magazine. This leads to the magazine having dual purposes; on one hand the company has its client’s interests at heart, constantly marketing and promoting (in a magazine’s case) the reader’s ideals and interests, whilst on the other hand ensuring that it earns as much money as possible for its stakeholders – this is outlined by McRobbie – concerning magazines, especially (self-proclaimed) feminist magazines such as Marie Claire, that symbolically objectify and suppress women to sell things (McRobbie, 1999).
Today, reality t.v. is very much a part of the funhouse effect as these shows reflect the current image portrayed by reality stars while altering American’s image of what is socially acceptable. Since the use of technology is so commonplace in American households, people enjoy the instant gratification of following others, especially celebrities, on “reality” shows. For example, the Kardashians or those participating in shows such as Big Brother or The Bachelor portray themselves as real
In “What We Are to Advertisers” and “Men’s Men and Women’s Women” both Twitchell and Craig reveal how advertisers utilize stereotypes to manipulate and persuade consumers into purchasing their products. Companies label their audience and advertise to them accordingly. Using reliable sources such as Stanford Research Institute, companies are able to use the data to their advantage to help market their products to a specific demographic. Craig and Twitchell give examples of this ploy in action by revealing how companies use “positioning” to advertise the same product to two demographics to earn more profit. Craig delves more into the advertisers ' plan by exposing the science behind commercials.
Gender stereotyping continues to boom in society today. The advertising and media world play a chief part in perpetuating the nature behind gender roles and it is society as a whole who choose to receive it as a norm. A wide scope of portrayals of men and women exists in advertising, however masculine imagery traditionally depicts athleticism, strength, activity and competitiveness whereas feminine images suggest submissiveness, beauty, dependency and sensitivity. The Britax Decathlon’s car seat advertisement and the Californian beach-estate property advertisement both exemplify the stereotyped representation of gender roles in society: the female toddler dresses up in pink, is only concerned with her accessories and plays inside, where as
In the past century, the ideas and ideals of what beauty signifies have changed dramatically throughout time and the world. From Snapchat and Instagram, to makeup tutorials and trends, technology today has influenced and changed the image of beauty. These changes can be explained through Malcolm Gladwell’s Tipping Point, with the Law of the Few, the Stickiness Factor, and the Power of Context. These main points assist in explaining how the world changes due to the psychological understanding shared with one another.
Advertisements are here to show and to sell, but their primary function is to expose a collection, a watch, a universe, a name. They transmit to their receiver a multitude of messages more or less subtle, but always cleverly thought. Not all brands have the same primary purpose when communicating. Let's make a simple distinction between luxury and other markets.
Magazines are a large part of our society, whether it is when they are featured in commercials, seen in stores, or on social media including the magazine's website. This means that people, especially women, are exposed to images of women who are seen as perfect, women who are often photo shopped beyond recognition and realistic possibility. These magazines often offer beauty and fashion advice, and discuss celebrity gossip. However, magazines often depict unrealistic beauty standards and perpetuate double-standards between women and men, particularly regarding age. One magazine cover in particular, a People Magazine with Julia Roberts on the cover, discusses the concept of "staying forever young.
Gender-neutral dressing has become a very popular trend nowadays. Some years ago, most of people believed that men who wear, so-called, women’s clothes have to be considered feminine and women who wear men’s- masculine. This particular attitude is being disturbed by such designers, who create the same dresses for both- women and men; or by the appearance of the transsexual models in the fashion industry. I may have stated it several times before, however my goal is to emphasize the influence of fashion in people’s comprehending of the world and the human being himself. “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.
Ultimately, Campbell efficiently creates the visual advertisement with integrating various factors such as composition details in designing the overall look to sway the audience onto her side, not only using a rhetorical appeal to authority but also a rhetorical appeal to emotion. Attracting the general American public, it is a clear depiction of the wide gap between the wealthy first world country and the poor third world country plus their differences.

We all see ads, whether they are on tv, in the newspaper, or on our phones. Many of these ads show famous celebrities using products to make viewers think that the product is better just because they use it. But are these marketing tactics going to far? How do we know that the products we are buying are exactly what the companies say they are? And how can we stop misleading advertisements from spreading lies?
The presented image tends to display the updated fashion that society should buy and dress like. It is misconceived that oneself will be more acceptable and likeable if they are fashionable and appealing. Many girls wear excessive amounts of makeup via this same belief, the belief that they will be rejected or disregarded if they fail to fulfill this precedent. With this precedent, social media has sculpted the “ideal body” that people should strive for. On top of being fashionable and attractive, the ideal body is commonly fit and in shape.
The advertisements I found were from an online magazine. The magazine ads use stereotypical representation when it comes to the person exposed in the pages of the magazine. The idea of depicting a handsome men or women in the cover or pages of a magazines seems to help the business industry to expand. For example, in the magazine ad of the women posing along side with the fragrance for women, J’adore Dior, has a more complex meaning that extends beyond the obvious or familiar.
A picture is worth a thousand words, one can say. The meaning of a picture results in different opinions from many viewers. These images, such as artwork and ads, have become a source of communication in this new age of society.
