A pet peeve... has anyone noticed that the Estee Laudee ads whenever Liya/Carolyn are posed together, Liya's always at the left and Carolyn is the focal point? In this one Liya's not even looking at the camera, she's looking at Carolyn with veneration. It's like she's being used as a contrast. It's very annoying actually.

I haven't noticed their gazes, but I do notice a lot of times in ads, and even sometimes in editorials, Liya (and other Black models) have to be contrasted by white models, as if them standing alone would not be as alluring. Look at the new Escada ads for an example: Liya is on the sides. In the old Escada ads, Liya was the focal point, but she had to be "balanced out" by the white model in the background. In the Estee Lauder ads I see in department stores, I usually see ones with Carolyn by herself, or if Liya is there, she is with her. Just something troubling I noticed.

Thanks, that's a perfect example of what I'm talking about. Whenever there's a group pic like this one, Liya is almost never in the center, which is the focal point of the picture. She is constrained along the edges. I only notice because it happens so often, and I wonder if it's intentional.
