Lot Notes

In a contemporary society based on and promoting a standardized image of the female body, most of the young women find themselves choosing either the path suggested by fashion magazines, either a personal, individual way of dressing, acting and physical developing. The skinny female icon suggested in commercials, photographs influence how teenage girls grow up and act as adults. The title, very suggestive, "Can you see the other me?", is a rhetorical question of a fashion icon wondering if the people around her can see the true character behind all the items connected to publicity.
