…as long as it happened 70 years ago.
Yup, it’s The Week in Women, my regular column at the Alliance of Women Film Journalists, posting a little late this weekend. Enjoy.
Re the “dolls”: Grr! Pastels! Roger smash! Or slightly more seriously, use of desaturated colours indicates a level of fear about the sameness and pallor of these people that’s quite worrying, especially as it seems to be justified.
we’re as much to blame – people like looking at beautiful things – look at the cover of most female magazines. Didn’t Vogue or some other magazine do a “black” model issue? That’s just a nod towards tokenism. It’s nice that they do it from time to time but it’s never going to be the norm.
what makes these pallid little sticks “beautiful”? i happen to like vibrant colours and vivid people… not that i would buy a copy of VF in any event.
