Make It Work

La Vita Bella[Glamour]
With thesis looming over me and making me really nervous/jittery and unsure about everything, I thought it was timely that I came across this photo spread by Glamour Magazine on American Icons. Okay, I'm not American, but I thought the message was pretty universal You can do anything!

And yes I can, featuring some of my favorite girls, Camilla Belle, American Ferrera, Alicia Keys, Alexis Bledel and others. I love photo shoots that have stars depicting other stars (very ANTM). And though I'm still working on it, little by little, it's coming together. 14 days left to submission and well, yes we can.

Clockwise from left: Camilla Belle as Mary Tyler Moore, Emma Stone as Carrie Bradshaw, America Ferrera as Dolores Huerta, Emma Roberts as Audrey Hepburn, Alicia Keys as Michelle Obama, Lindsay Lohan as Madonna (how fitting), and Alexis Bledel as Rosie the Riveter!

Alexis Bledel as Rosie the Riveter

"She’s a symbol of women getting things done. It shows that strength is beautiful."

Probably my favorite out of the bunch just because this photo was so iconic. I also love how they got Alexis (the poster girl for fragility and so very porcelain doll to play this really strong character. I love it.

Camilla Belle as Mary Tyler Moore

"We all should continue to be as independent as Mary was and unapologetically push for equality in the workplace."

I never really watched the Mary Tyler Moore show but I thought Camilla looked really good as her. I agree with a commenter on JustJared -- she could have done an Elizabeth Taylor better, but hey I don't know if Elizabeth Taylor was what they were going for with the multiple husbands and all. Gorgeous actress though.

America Ferrera as Dolores Huerta

"She saw her own opinion and voice as [something as] powerful as any man’s."

Look! Betty's standing up for herself. I know America has been all about empowerment so it's just right that she fits into this shoot. And though I don't think I'm much of a feminist, I do agree that a woman's opinion is just as powerful as a man's.
