While flipping through Allure magazine to find pictures of models to cut out for an art display I'm making for Eating Disorder Awareness Week, I found this horrible page. It's meant to display clothes, but all I see is what appears to be a drugged or knocked out woman with her shirt unbuttoned, while a looming man zips up his pants behind her. It looks like it was taken moments after a rape took place. Why would they position their models this way? It blows my mind how little the fashion industry cares about the potential effects of their advertisements. Just as long as we buy the clothes, right?
