This snap shot clearly shows two women shopping, but the two couldnt be more conflicting. The use of juxtapositioning coulld be the directors way of highlighting social class in the program, and also highlighting even more the two menas differences.
The woman on the on right, clearly appears to be weathly, this could be due to her fitted clothes, well kept blonde hair, aswell as the fact that she is looking at what appears to be expensive long dresses, this gives the audience many expensive and rich connetations reinforcing the fact that she could be very wealthy. She also has a tall and petite figure also giving us impression she takes care of her apperance.
The women nearer the camera and to the left, is almost the complete opposite of the woman on the right. her hair looks damanged and not well kept and it is being held up messyly by a wooden clip, giving the viewer a negative impression of being poor and that she doesnt care for her apperance. she also looks like she doesnt fit in the shop, as the shop looks very expensive, the white walls and the heavy lighting reinforces this.
Th woman on the right is made to stand out more by the lighting which is directly above her, this makes us, the viewer look at the older woman and compare the two. in a row of the black dresses there is a white dress which clearly stands out, this is could be used as a hidden divide between the two women.
