How does your media product represent particular social groups?

the model used on the cover, although covered up is representing sexuality and music genre. The pose the model is doing is fairly "sexy" with the way her body is positioned. her lips are also brightly coloured red. Red is often used to connotate sex. and as research ha been carreied out, one of the few reasons women are placed on the cover of magazine is to sell, as the popular saying "sex sells" and this is the approach I was going for, especially as the main target audience for music magazines are males.
        music genre is represented through the costume the model is wearing as her t-shirt shows a black and white image of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, which are popular icons among the indie community.
