Amber Rose As Rosie The Riveter: Yay Or Nay? (PHOTO, POLL)

Amber Rose may be on her way to domesticated bliss, but her 1940s-style blue bandanna sent a different message yesterday.

The model and aspiring singer channeled World War II-era feminist icon Rosie the Riveter while running errands around L.A. She completed the look with a pair of wide-brimmed specs and a blonde wig (chosen to match her signature buzz cut we suppose), peeking out from under the scarf.

Rosie the Riveter served as the face of a 1940s advertising campaign created to recruit women into the workforce during WWII. The symbol represented the two million women who made the leap from domestic roles, helping to change gender dynamics and make employment outside of the home more socially acceptable and even desirable, the Ad Council says.
