What is beauty?

It’s a question that seems to be in our faces more and more everyday. I just watched a glimpse of a what happens to a teen model who is transformed with hair and makeup artists into a woman – then is computer enhanced into something “gorgeous”. The images presented to us in advertising campaigns really have an impact on the way people view their bodies, self-image and others. After reading Violet on the Runway by Melissa Walker and then seeing this film clip – it reconfirmed what I always have thought. You have to know your SELF and be true to your SELF. Beauty is in your spirit, your smile, your eyes, your laughter and thoughtfulness. Think about the most beautiful person you know – is the true beauty on the outside or the inside? What do you value most and what do you think that person values most? Several libraries are hosting workshops sponsored by Dove. Check out the videos – especially “Onslaught” – on this website called the Campaign for Real Beauty. What are your thoughts and observations?

  1. I love the honesty and crispness of this entry. For those who are truly interested in taking the first steps into modeling should seriously consider
    a company i went with a company called FreshfacesMagazine.com Since it is not an agency, it takes out all the guess work of legitamacy. The magazine is actually an online publication and printed publication that is sent directly to serious agencies that will then take you seriously after you have been in a published magazine. There are a plethora of resources and a wealth of experience with their staff. The true deterimining factor of any model, actor, or entertainer is one’s own determination and self-promotion.
