Their goal is to make every woman feel confident and sexy in their own skin, but their commercial’s and ad campaign is saying something totally different. Who knew ads can do so much damage to a person. Victoria secrets is wrong in so many different level.

    If not, companies will be getting negative feedback that could shut down their business, and women all over the world will be self conscious about the way they look. But in the meantime there is not much we can do about this situation. Women should just ignore what the media thinks and be confident in themselves. Be confident in yourself because you are beautiful no matter what. Beauty is the qualities of a woman such as their shape, color, and personality.…

    As society grows and women are seen more provocative, the more and more real women will feel inferior and self conscious in their own skin. We as women are trained to hate ourselves, whether it be in social media platforms, commercials, television, or any other form in society. We are taught from the moment we can speak and walk that what we say and do in this world is not good enough in less we look “the part.” There is no teaching in our society about women being mentally strong, being educated, being talented in other fields outside of looks. Women are taught how to use their looks as an advantage, beauty commercials teach women that we are suppose to use our looks for an advantage. These models, dances, singers, and actresses they are not real but we are brainwashed into thinking that they are.…

    A lot of women compare themselves to other women and sometimes they have unrealistic expectation of what really beauty is. Most if not all print ads are photo shopped to make the women in them appear thinner and give them flawless skin. These ads usually push the importance of physical attractiveness at the audience. The Dove Real Beauty Sketches video does the opposite. The purpose of this ad is female empowerment.…

    Photoshopped models, airbrushed actresses and filtered Instagram pictures lead women to look at themselves in the mirror and see nothing like the women in magazines or online. Advertisers use pathos to evoke the emotion in their audience. In this case they are taking an ordinary woman and comparing her to a supermodel. Photoshopping and digitally enhancing expert Ashley Brown (2015) says, “Advertising works by seeming to ‘‘invite us ‘freely’ to create ourselves in accordance with the way in which they have already created us’’(p.689). But while it may hurt an individual’s self-esteem, it is a booster for cosmetics and beauty sales everywhere.…

    Introduction Strong is the New Skinny There’s this supposition in society that every woman wants and needs to be beautiful in order to be successful in life. In addition to society, there is an abundance of multi-billion dollar companies devoted to selling women products designed to “fix” them into look a certain way. These companies come into our lives with advertisements directed towards fashion, celebrity gossip, and now, makeup. I got excited when I saw MAC’s makeup advertisement entitled “Strength.” The image is not a glamourous, airbrushed celebrity. Rather, it’s a powerful shot of a body builder.…

    Ad Analysis Today advertisements for women's clothing and makeup target the insecurities of young woman. Companies use the appearance of young, fit, beautiful models to persuade consumers that their appearance is insufficient to societal standards without their product. The ad that I have selected is an advertisement for mascara put out by L'oreal Paris in 2011. This static ad while it is effective is unethical. It uses snob appeal and causes woman to compare themselves to the model, Gwen Stefani.…

    Marketers influence girls by saying: “they need to be pretty, sexy and materialistic to fit in and be successful” (Barbaro & Earp, 2008). Marketers start influencing women from the age of four years old. They put seemingly perfect women on the cover of tween magazines. This influence’s young females by giving them someone to look up to: “Children from as early as four years old to buy cosmetics” (Barbaro & Earp, 2008). Marketers are making large amounts of money from creating the idea that cosmetics will help girls reach perfection, which, in turn, will make them successful in life.…

    Campaign For Real Beauty

    Dove does an exceptional job of ridding of the normal, skinny models and using more average women in order to depict raw beauty. Postrel, however, is completely against the campaign and criticizes, “We know beauty when we see it…not every girl is beautiful just the way she is” (Postrel 126). Although Postrel’s claim that societal standards may not particularly highlight ever person as beautify, the harsh words that “not every girl is beautiful” is utterly incorrect. While society certainly chooses the definition of beauty, every person possesses their own unique sense of beauty, whether it be pretty eyes or beautiful hair, beauty is beauty. Dove extended its Real Beauty campaign’s boundaries by successfully empowering older women who are not really seen in many advertisements today.…

    This shows that more girls are more vulnerable and pressured into being the ideal beauty because of photoshopping and magazines. Studies have shown that girls become major consumers of cosmetic products in an attempt to reach the unrealistic ideal beauty standard. In a study conducted by Martin, Peter’s, Opree, Buijzen, Van Reijmersdal, and Valkenburg, found that adolescent girls place higher importance on appearance than adult women do, and that popular media promotes the use of consumer products for achieving the ideal body shape. This proves that stores are forcing these thoughts into our minds without even thinking about what it actually does to women and…

    Dove has released numerous videos aiming to boost the confidence of women and show them that beauty is within us all and that the way we see ourselves is not how others view us, reaching millions of viewers. Dove has also tackled the subject of photoshop, creating a video showing the photoshop of a woman into a virtually unrecognizable version of herself. Dove has taken notice of the unreasonable standards women have been put up against for decades. As Dove states on its website, “we're so bombarded by unattainable standards of beauty – in magazines, TV, advertisements, on social media – that we undervalue the true beauty in ourselves” (Dove). Dove is working to boost the self-esteem of women and show them that they are not alone in feeling unappreciated.…
