As the models are changing, we’re given close up shots of each of them preparing for their day and the use of costume is effective because you see all the models wearing lingerie which shows women as sexual objects for men. When Andy enters the ‘Runway’ building she is in complete contrast with the rest of the world hence showing that she is crossing the threshold. Andy is an outsider and she is promptly judged on her exterior appearance by Emily. “Human resources certainly has an odd sense of humour.” This goes to show that not only men construct female stereotype but women also establish this idea on gender based on status, wealth and appearance. Although this movie is well known for the gender stereotype, there is also many examples throughout the film with characters who subvert these ideas.
By 1914, he was perfecting make up for the movies. He had improvised a new alternative to dye greasepaint, which he thought looked dreadful and 'terrifying' on the screen. He formed flexible greasepaint, which was the first make up created for film. It helped make actresses look more natural in close up. His most notable clients were Mary Pickford, Jean Harlow, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford and Judy Garland, all of whom became regular visitors at his salons.
In the play, the two women – Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Hale- who are only brought along with the sheriff and attorney to retrieve some items for a wife – Mrs. Wright/ Minnie foster- accused for killing her husband –Mr. Wright, are the ones who actually find the evidence to indict the accused. In trifles, the title is ironic as the reader sees what is silly and "trifle" to men, is the key for solving the murder. In a general look at Trifles, a reader can figure right away the roles given to women in that era. Women's roles were mainly reproductive and briefly social.
Carolyn Downing, the sound director, was extremely successful in conveying the play’s central theme and message, as the director intended to draw out. In particular she was able to draw out the theme of hypocrisy- conveying the message that most people have a public and private face, one which they show and one that contains their inner desires and feelings. One particular moment where sound was used to create tension was when people entered on to the stage near the end of the play where Harry Horner was about to be revealed for what he really was by Lucy the maid. Every time someone entered on to stage to gather together there was a loud drum roll on a snare drum. This created tension because the actors were entering one after the other so there were constant playing of drums and they were getting gradually louder as more characters came on to the stage.
She works humorously and provocatively, and with great acting skill. It could be said that one of her most significant works is Museum Highlights; a videotaped performance accomplished in 1989. In this performance, Fraser presents herself as the character: “Jane Castleton”, a museum tour guide called at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. During the performance, Fraser conducts a visit to all different areas of the museum describing them with exceedingly dramatic expressions. She caricaturizes Philadelphia’s upper middle-class to such a degree that her tour of the city’s Museum of Art degenerated into a meaningless mix of quotations from magazine articles and nostalgic memoirs, which she pronounces in comedic manner.
We discuss it with our hairdressers and even standing in the grocery isle. All of us are discussing what happened on the tube the night before – and it’s not, World News Tonight, we’re all talking about. Rather, it’s who is cheating on their spouse on “Temptation Island”, or who’s stabbing who in the back on, “Survivor”. Reality tv seems to be giving viewers more and more insight on how to be greedy, prideful, lazy, lustful, envious, and angry. But do these reality shows serve to illuminate aspects of human character that otherwise should be obscured; like how far down the moral ladder are we willing to go for a million dollars?
These children are way too young to be worrying about what they look like when they look in the mirror. It is appalling for these grown adults, especially their moms, to be adding all the pressure and stress that should not be obtained until high school when their peers will start to judge naturally, it is disgusting and cruel. These young girls are dressed up provocatively and imitate grown woman by winking and blowing kisses to the judges while moving their bodies as if they were fully developed. The pageant world completely destroys their innocence. Girls have been seen dressed up as Dolly Parton wearing padding on their chest and bottom to pull of the full celebrity look.
Young Women Deceived by the Media In today’s society, some form of media constantly surrounds us. Whether it is a television commercial telling the viewers to buy shampoo that will make their hair look like they just stepped out of a salon or a tabloid asking grocery shoppers to guess the celebrity’s body, the emphasis on appearance in our society can not be ignored. Teenagers are looking at models that wear perfectly draped sweaters that hang loosely over skyscraper legs, and they desire to look the same way. However, when those thoughts run through their mind, they create questions of what normal truly is. The media has a very powerful effect on virtually all areas of society, particularly young girls.
Acting Cultural Event Report For my cultural event report I saw the CSHS Theatrical Play Legally Blonde, which is a play about a young lady who is love-struck over her boyfriend but is falls into depression after he dumps her to go to Harvard Law. However, she manages to overcome her depression and try to follow him into Harvard and impress him enough to take her back. However upon arriving, she sees that he has a new girlfriend and goes to a hair salon to cut all her hair out of frustration. In the hair salon she makes some new friends that urge her not to get involved with her former boyfriend and be her own person. In the end, the girl gets married to one of her helpful friends and finally accepts that she is her own person.
