Dove's controversial advertisements for "Real Beauty" have set a new standard for beauty, or have they? This paper discusses the pros and cons of these controversial ads. It is a critical analysis of what message these ads are trying to send and who their target market is.

From the Paper:

"Beauty is that which gives one a sense of pleasure, but everyone finds pleasure in different things. Therefore beauty is subjective. Yet some groups of people try to make others believe that their own personal definition of beauty is or should be a universal truth. Supermodels, clothing brands, celebrities, fashion critics and beauty brands have all been part of it. Once in a while something, like Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty, pops up trying to redefine stereotypical beauty only by establishing a new one."
