It is not even debatable that people, in particularly men will take notice of a large picture of a beautiful woman in a public setting and this was proven by the positive reaction of people who saw her on the side of the Snowdon train route.
For fans of classical music and some entertainment journalists such as David Lister of The Independent she is potentially the dream brand ambassador for classical music.

Performers such as the gorgeous Katherine Jenkins turn this stereotype on its head as she is a jaw-dropping gorgeous classical-crossover singer who if her picture was on the side of some Tube trains in England or buses it is very likely that people would search her name on their mobile phones and smart tablets and this could increase interest in her and classical music.
