The use of prosthetic body parts is indicative of a new kind of femininity emerging in popular culture — fake body parts and plastic surgery are growing trends. Furthermore, the Sex Pictures series is a play on photographed pornography — a genre where the male gaze is necessary for success. For Mulvey, the male fixes his gaze on the woman for erotic pleasure, thus objectifying her. In these photographs, the male cannot fix his gaze for erotic pleasure. The images are threatening and the masked heads gaze out at the audience, parodying the anticipation of pleasure when viewing pornography.

Another facet of gender construction is manufactured through fashion choices.

I picked out some clothes that I wanted to use. I was sent completely different clothes that I found boring to use. I really started to make fun of, not really of the clothes, but much more of fashion…I really liked the idea that this was going to be in French Vogue, amongst all these gorgeous women in the magazine.

Sherman deliberately eschewed the conventions of fashion photography, causing French Vogue to ultimately reject the works for their magazine.

However, other fashion editors and designers received her works enthusiastically. This series deliberately attacked the industry as a system for the subjugation of women Heartney Women in traditional fashion images are glamorized and positioned for the male gaze, but Sherman deconstructs this stereotype and the conventional codes of female allure. Again, she subverts the male gaze taking control of her character and its representation. Furthermore, Sherman exposes the fluidity of femininity in these images too, revealing the techniques by which women in fashion magazines and advertisements are imagined and constructed Williamson Her photographs debunk the founding ideologies of fashion magazines by openly criticizing and opposing their ability to construct a stable femininity.

Sherman is able to change her identity by adopting performative behaviors that have come to define femininity. Women affirm their gender identity through performative behaviour; gender is constituted through the ongoing and repetitive assemblage of female representations depicted in culture. These behaviours position the male as a spectator, fixing his gaze on the sexualized female.

Behind each character there is no central identity. Each is a series of manipulations according to cultural conventions Williamson There is no essential femininity; the whole self is an imaginary construct that can be changed through performativity.

Butler similarly proposes that gender is not the expression of biological sex but a performative act constructed within culture: By recognizing the female character from popular culture, audiences are invited to interpret her as an existing stereotype: First Published 31 December In his essay on Edgar Allan Poe, the poet Charles Baudelaire offered a general reflection on the importance of adolescence in the development of character, genius, and style: This dictionary is little read, however, because a guide for its use, a 86guide to how character, genius, and style—to use Baudelaire's terms—define each other, has not been developed.
