Helen of troy is discussed in this article as promiscuous and points out the issue with that point of view. She is seen and valued for her beauty and its effect on men. The author is trying to argue her point and convincingly educate those "slut-shaming" the character in this greek mythology.
In this case is it not an author but an artist that is trying to convey the stereotypical view of Marylin as a beauty and fashion icon. It is using modern ideals to convey the image of a self centered and superficial Marylin, targeting a younger audience. The idea of a selfie with perfect hair, make up, and clothes, and her egocentric expression show the icon she has always been portrayed as despite her talents and intelligence.
Kim Kardashian is the modern icon for beauty and fashion. In this article Kim is used as the inspiration for a make over, very much in a physical aspect. The audience is somewhat broad as she has gained vast poparity over the years, yet it is targeted mostly to females and really highlights the importance of physical apperance and certain standars or level of "perfection" women feel obligated, and are under pressure to, obtain.
Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings worldwide and it is known for the admiration of the artist toward the mysterious woman. In this article her appearance and effect her beauty has on the general population are heavily questioned. The importance of her real identity has become an obsession to some over the years and her beauty has inspired countless investigations. All to know who the beutiful woman in the painting is.
Beyonce is an admirable woman who has countless accomplishments, and has broken many stereotypes for women and the black community. Her talents are endless and her dedication is mesmerizing. Yet in this interview the questioning all leads to her beauty secrets, preference, ad routine. Of course her beauty is undeniable and deserves to be admired but not once was she questioned on her work ethic, her talents, her music, or her in the community. The young girls and young women reading the magazine are all focusing on the importance of appearance rather than how impressive being a successful empowering woman is.
