Diversity in the Fashion and Film Industry

The best way to see any form of progression is to compare and contrast the old(er) and the new(er).
For example for the topic above, a great comparison could be between The Devil Wears Prada and Cruella. The Devil Wears Prada centres around primarily tall, thin, white (a key element) females all vying for the same position at a fashion magazine and doing whatever they need to to get it, whilst Cruella has a different take in more diversity, with its cast, fashion sense, and overall has a different sense of oomph. The only diverse aspect of The Devil Wears Prada is the one (gay) white male, while Cruella has a cast of varied age and race. Yes, both relate to the fashion industry, but portray it in a different way. Created give or take twenty years apart, we can already see the change of diversity within both.
Diversity includes elements such as race, sex, gender, physical appearance, and it is very interesting to see how two of the biggest industries in the world are trying to create a more inclusive and diverse future. However, are they doing this because they want to or because they have to? If they don’t, could they hypothetically go bankrupt? There is a lot of wiggle room with an article like this because diversity includes a lot of different aspects!
