Regardless of the criticism she soon became a trend setter. She was a model for women in both dress and action, again just like Barbie. Some people disputed that "Gibson Girl" as a national standard for feminine beauty. They felt she would disturb social order but in fact most women welcomed the change (Gibson Girl, 2010). The caricature image became very popular representing American girls.
The close up on Susan Sarandon’s face is used to show how beautiful she is because she uses REVLON. By using her beauty it gives the product credibility and it manipulates people because a famous person is being used and one immediately assumes that the product must be good. Furthermore, alliteration is used. Susan Sarandon’s initials match the initials of the title “Star Style” people will be more compelled to buy the product because she uses it and especially because the words confident and charismatic are used to describe her, again alliteration is shown. The REVLON advertisement use of rhetoric appeals to those who know who Sandra is and like
The emotional effect media has on a woman’s mindset, or ethos, could very well send her overboard into what is commonly known as an eating disorder. The bar is already set extremely high for young girls these days. It can be as simple as a gorgeous movie star wearing your favorite brand of clothing. Now all that runs through your mind while in the fitting room is how much better the clothes looked on that tall, lean body of your idol because it’s someone you look up to and trust. The world is continuously comparing themselves to figures from the media that they forget who they even are.
In my opinion, I think every woman is beautiful and the people who don’t have those characteristics should also get an opportunity to become a model as well; no matter what size they are big or small. This is why plenty of women have insecurity problems. These misguided women change their physical features such as their face using plastic surgery to fix their eyes, nose, lips and other parts of their face. Not only have they used plastic surgery to fix their face but also their body. This procedure reconstructs their whole body, for example give them bigger breasts and a bigger
Young girls now have the ideal of the perfect look which that involves thinness and volume in certain areas in their body such as breasts. Many times, when this procedure is had by females, they aim at positive results not only physical (argument breasts) but also psychological (ego boost). They have the idea that this change will enable them to catch prince charming after healing from their surgery. There is an example of a male who wanted to look
Women are set such a high standards when it comes to society’s expectations because “average” just doesn’t cut it. Most women these days are expected to look, dress and act a certain way that they normally wouldn’t intend on doing. Women feel pressured on trying to dress more feminine, as they feel, based on society’s expectations, that this is the only way men will feel more sexually attracted to them. Also another reason is that most women also try competing against other women just too simply get more attention. Partially in saying that, women mostly feel the need to make themselves look good because they themselves see them only being attracted to the good looking guys and the only way they think of trying to do this, is by using their looks as a part of attracting the opposite gender.
In my opinion, Americans tend to think that their appearance is everything and go to great measures to get their desired looks. I also believe that people in society are always trying too hard to make them self look like their ideal celebrity. I feel that men and women have different standards when it comes to appearance and how they view it. I also agree with Nancy Hellmich in her article, “Do Thin Models Warp Girls Body Image?” as she says that girls are becoming skinnier and skinnier as the years go by. I think as society tends to focus on their appearance more, it also becomes more dangerous.
She has a slim waist, has round hips, and long legs. She's not necessarily realistic within our world, but she is what you can say, "perfect sized". Her body has become idolized and wanted by women within society. Barbie is a fashion icon, the perfect girl, and purely looked up to by many. She's a representation of how girls should look or want to look within the current time frame.

For instance, a celebrity like Michael J. Fox would help his organization to attract more publicity, thus making any money that was used before for public awareness accessible for research and any other resources. According to some people, having a celebrity associated with a cause could also weaken the cause. Well this may be true if the celebrity is known to have a bad reputation. It could also weaken the cause if they have been involved in a cause or event before, that wasn't handled correctly.
