She charmed him by rolling her self up in the rug and had herself delivered to Caesar. ( what kind of women p.4) Despite the looks Cleopatra’s political and intellectual skills, and her mastery of the language made Caesar admire and have a high regard for Cleopatra( my 15).

Media and Lifestyle The art on the silver screens transcended onto the clothing that woman wore to personify a certain independence. Woman felt stylish and sophisticated even under the unstable economic climate. Technicolor, colored film, was also breaking through, allowing audiences to see the colors that are in style for the season. The color champagne became a red carpet classic for Hollywood favorites such as Jean Harlow and Loretta Young (figs 1-2). Children’s fashion was influenced by what Shirley Temple would wear in her films (Chancey, fig 9).
How does Shakespeare make Act 1 Scene 5 dramatically effective? Line 43 is a classic example of hyperbole. Romeo makes contrasting comparisons, showing how he feels about Juliet from the moment they see each other. “O she doth teach the torches to burn bright!” explains that in Romeo’s eyes Juliet’s beauty is responsible for all the light in the room. Additionally, Romeo effectively verbalizes “So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows” means Shakespeare wants the audience to know how beautiful Juliet is by using a metaphor.
Harker’s provocative description of these women turns the Victorian ideals into alluring acts of human sexuality. “I was afraid to raise my eyelids, but looked out and saw perfectly under the lashes. The girls went on her knees, and bent over me, simply gloating. There was a deliberate voluptuousness which was both thrilling and repulsive, and as she arched her neck, she actually licked her lips like an animal” (Stoker 39).The description of the women vampires illustrates the lust and weaknesses that men have for controlling women. The sisters are a prime example of how Victorian men are weakened by aggressive sexy women.
These sons, Smenkhkare and Tutankhamun, were the heirs to the throne. However, Nefertiti was his chief wife and the most loved of all the others. Akhenaten had many likenesses made of Nefertiti all over Egypt. There are also many carvings made of them together riding chariots, him kissing her in public, and her on his knee. Idolized, Nefertiti was especially known for her great beauty and was declared many things which include "The Heiress, Great in the Palace, Fair of Face, Adorned with the Double Plumes, Mistress of Happiness, Endowed with Favors, at hearing whose voice the King rejoices, the Chief Wife of the King, his beloved, the Lady of the Two Lands, Neferneferuaten-Nefertiti, May she live for Ever and Always" She was a very important figure in her husband’s reign because of the fact that Akhenaten valued femininity as a very important part in his kingdom.
The caricature image became very popular representing American girls. She began to represent more than just beauty but freedom, independence and change within the role of our nation’s women. She showed strength along with beauty and brought forth a message that a woman could accomplish anything they wanted. The author Kate Chopin often identified with the Gibson Girl in most of her stories. She portrayed her as a strong woman who continually pushed against social norms in a mild convincing
She is wearing a bright white dress with wings which suggests that she is an angel from heaven. Luhrmann’s close up emphasises that Juliet doesn’t have any make-up on which suggests that Juliet is pure, and therefore angelic and heavenly. Alternatively, Shakespeare chooses to present Romeo as desperate, as his love jumps from one person to another; ‘Did my heart love till now?’ Romeo is portrayed as desperate, as he dumps his love for Rosaline, for Juliet, even though he has only caught a glimpse of her. In Act 1, Scene 1, Romeo describes his love for Rosaline using an Oxymoron ‘cold fire’, this suggests that Romeo is still in love for Rosaline but he is cold inside because he knows she can’t love him. When Romeo is at the masked ball, his love for Rosaline seems to disappear, and jumps straight onto Juliet.
He also describes her as, "the sun" that can "kill the envious moon" (II.2.3). As a way to describe Juliet’s eyes, Romeo says "two of the fairest stars in all the heaven" (II.2.15). Juliet will also compare Romeo to light throughout the play. She will show in different ways that he is her light that illuminates the darkness. Although light can represent love and beauty, it is not always good in the two lovers interest.
She is described as a "beautiful and accomplished lady", who can dance magnificently and sings duets with Mr. Rochester. This statement adheres to the Victorian judgments on women, which were based on their complexion and the ability to entertain with music and dance, thus diminishing a woman's true worth. "Olive complexion, dark and clear features; eyes…as brilliant as her jewels" Blanche is firstly described as a jewel, the description of her physical appearance is before her character; this shows the timeless importance of physical appearance for society and the way it affects people's opinions, favoring the attractive. However Blanche and Jane are the complete opposite. I believe, Jane represents a new type of hero the revolutionary feminist ideology of equality between men and women.
Whether she might be the main character, the lover, the wife, or even the maid. There are plenty of example where you see these Latinas expressed in eroctic ways, where they are extremely desirable and beautiful. One example is the film “Chasing Papi”. You have three beautiful looking Latina actresses who are very hypersexualized and are chasing after the same man trying to win him over. You see these women are shown with their breasts and butts and accents and they all could dance in a sexy way, and can be manipulative as well.
