Brendan's Feedback on Lauren's: Feminine Sexuality in Dior Perfume Advertising

Things I Liked:
I thought your point that ads for women's products rely so much on portraying feminine sexuality; some of the pictures in your collage could be straight of of Maxim if it weren't for the Dior logo. I also definitely agree with your statement that sex sells these products because the ads make it seem like using it will automatically turn you into the woman in the ad.

Points to Improve:
Your Kilbourne quote mentions "false quests for power and control". Elaborating more on this in that paragraph could have been helpful. Also, the next paragraph does talk about this, but switching the quotes around could have reinforced what you were saying in the second and third paragraphs.
