    J Adore Dior Ad Analysis

    • 1024 Words
    • 4 Pages

    lighting, and the model’s facial and body language all work together to create an elegant and luxurious tone that appeals to the target audience’s desire for wealth and beauty leading them to purchase the J’adore Dior perfume. Perhaps the first thing that pops out in this advertisement is the abundance of gold coloring: her dress and jewelry, her complexion, hair and makeup, the palace hall, as well as the sunlight beaming into the hall through which she’s walking. While all of these shades of gold work together with the perfume’s color in order to endorse the product, they also create a mood within the ad — one of elegance, luxury, and wealth — which appeals to the emotions and desires of the intended audience.

This focus attracts attention to her facial expressions and body language, which are strikingly assertive and powerful: she seems to be…

    The first thing I noticed when starting Muriel Barbery’s The Elegance of the Hedgehog, was that the characters of Reneé and Paloma mirror each other in many ways. In fact, when the point of view switched from that of Reneé to Paloma, I didn’t even realize until she said, “I am twelve years old,” which counteracts with Reneé being fifty four in the previous chapter. I’m not sure how the book is formatted in print, but at least in my ebook, there is no heading or any other indication of the point…
