I love food, love women, love my daughter, love travelling, and love much more [and not at all in that order ;)]. Female; Age: Between 25 and 35 years (I'm lazy so I gave myself 10 years before I have to change this again). :) Coming out after not realizing fully that I am soooooo gay for many, many moons in my life.
I have never thought about it in this context
that’s actually really, really creepy.
I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages.
There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.

I’m officially naming this award season “the year stars stopped giving a fuck”
Far be it for me to dispute Cate Blanchett, or the larger point she’s making, but the guys are all wearing the same thing. If the camera were to do that to the guys, it’d just be black pants over… and over…. and over…
I agree. In this particular case, it’s apples and oranges. Tuxes versus gowns. Photocopies versus unique work. Perhaps their real foul was not running the shot by her before hand.
I would like to point out, though, the salacious nature of the slow pan up a woman’s body. In this particular case, detail isn’t usually put on the hem of a dress (because no one wants to see hand beading or embroidery get dirty or ripped out by an errant stiletto), and a full-body shot would be better to showcase the drape and design of these beautiful gowns like in the fashion plate glossies. Starting at the bottom and slowly panning up dehumanizes women because you don’t see their faces until you’ve seen the rest of their bodies. Their identities don’t matter.
That’s a really good point, thank you.

I would also like to point out that the fact that the men all wear the same thing is part of an accepted standard in men’s fashion that is not accepted in women’s fashion.
If a woman wears the same gown as a peer, she’s stolen her peer’s look. No one cares that men only wear the same thing as each other.
Where is this?
