What do you see?

I’m not keen on reblogging other blog but this one, you have to see. It comes from Mason Bentley Style, two designers who take vintage clothes, zhuzh them up, and make them their own designs. The are based out of London. I hope that you will visit their blog because they are very cool and fun to read. You will love their looks. Now, feast your eyes this post…

I can’t decide which one I will be so I’ll be them all. Which one will you be?

I’ve been reading a great deal lately on the pros and cons of the Dove Real Beauty ad campaign..Does it represent a significant change in advertising by re-defining the unrealistic ideals regarding the way women should look?..Or is it a cynical reinforcement of the same old message that beauty is the most important asset for a women to have?

Personally, I can’t help but feel it’s an attempt at blue sky thinking by driven, claustrophobic, muttering male advertising execs who see it as an opportunity to make money by taking a ‘supporting’ stand.

Particularly when you compare the sugar coated rhetoric of the Dove ads, to the genius take it or leave it campaign for Karen Walker’s sunglasses based on the inspirational ladies from Ari Seth’s Advanced Style Blog.
