Much has been discussed about the sexualization of female models in the fashion world, in advertising and above all, the most important headers. Poses with a high erotic content, too much skin and much, much provocation are the main ingredients of some covers of magazines whose target audience, against all odds, is feminine. How much to cliché is there in the fact that the men’s magazines more promote the sexual objectification of the female models?, would how much of certain is there in this? Compare.
Covers of magazines for men?
Maxim, Men’s Health, GQ, Sports Illustrated… There are many names of international headers that have raised blisters ever with their excessively provocative covers. Models from the likes of Lara Stone, Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bündchen, or the very Kate Moss have occupied the front pages of these and other well-known magazines, resulting in editorials and covers with sexual content.
However, not only the magazines for men have stripped to tops like Karlie Kloss or Adriana Lima. Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Love or W Magazine have also turned repeatedly to this hackneyed tactic of calling attention.
Some wear fame and others cardan wool, or so they say.
The Harper’s Bazaar and company scandals
Are why us outraged against explicit poses on the covers of magazines such as Playboy or Lui and those belonging to Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue considered aesthetically acceptable?
Little have to go back until we find the last scandal *. Miranda Kerr * and his cover in the January-February issue dand Harper’s Bazaar Australia It was seen as unacceptable and proceeded to its withdrawal from circulation in a wide number of supermarkets and kiosks Australian only four days after releasing the number.
Needless to say is that the series of seven covers that Love Magazine He undressed (strategically, that Yes) to Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Lara Stone, Amber Valletta, Natalia Vodianova, Jeneil Williams and Daria Werbowy in 2010 were not welcomed with open arms.
V Magazine also understands scandals. The last arrived a month ago by the hand of Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney, that he left through a selfie in the mirror glimpse of two naked bodies and a messy bed. Too much information for a cover of fashion that caused, as expected, a major stir.
Although it is not, nor much less the first time V Magazine is news on this type of photographs, in 2010 already what proved was the scandal with The sexy body issue, a series of five covers that recognized models such as Isabeli Fontana and Eniko Mihalik appeared half-naked and poses in nothing recatadas.
And if these covers them protagonizasen them?
Maybe the solution to the problem of the female sexualization in fashion do not file the imposition of defined limits, but the treatment or acceptance by the company of such images. What if instead of Rosie Huntington find a male model in the same pose?, How would these covers starring men? We think.
