Self esteem is important for every woman and their bodies

Many women do not notice that they are taking the body they have for granted and they don't realize that the way their bodies are, is what they should be proud of

which symbolizes hot and sexy. Who produced this media text? DOLCE & GABBANA Whose point of view is shown? The customers Who is the targeted audience? How do you know? Does this appeal to you. Why or why not? It doesn't appeal to me because firstly it's a women selling
the product not a man. Also because the women is placed
in the ad to look like a sex object, with the red lipstick and her cleavage showing. The targeted audience for this ad is both women and men because at the bottom of the ad it says "The One".
