Example Legally Blonde film poster Legally Blonde is a film in which a beautiful woman Reese Witherspoon defies the convention of the dumb blonde to become a top lawyer Colour is very important for the formation and connoted meaning of the characters femininity The poster is designed using typically feminine colours of bubblegum pink and sunshine yellow However the background is entirely blue with clouds surrounding the top half of her body The blue sky and clouds infer the notion that this striking womans head is situated firmly within them and isnt intelligent enough to aspire her dream Considering that blue is a colour habitually associated with men and the character is surrounded by it this could signify that shes within a male dominated world The womans stance is very open- carrying books in one arm and holding a dog lead in the other She takes a sexually attractive active role The way she is dressed reinforces this she wears a low cut figure-hugging dress Again the colour is traditionally feminine along with her feathered pen high heels and her dogs matching accessories In terms of audience she plays two specific roles To men she is a sexual entity but to women an ideologically perfect figure The character carries clichd ideals of beauty implemented by male opinion- flowing blonde hair and blue eyes Being that shes also very slim with long slender legs most men would be attracted to her However due to the nature of the film women are also attracted to her as an aspirational individual The fact that shes carrying books whilst still appearing as stunningly beautiful engages the idea that they as an audience can do it too Her books are both a strong syntagmatic and important prop as they symbolically exchange themselves for intelligence Her clothes accessories and general appearance do the same for the paradigm of upheld girlish femininity Girlish femininity can be easily associated
