Choose who appeals to you from a wide-array of choices in what must be the Most Comprehensive List in the Internet.
Is beauty beyond color, race or gender? Is the standard different between male and female? Is there a formula, a mould, a process to distill the essential? Or is beauty a paradox? Ubiquitous but undefinable. Better beheld than explained. Best experienced than understood.
There are a million lists on the same subject, why another ‘silly’ list? Everyone’s entitled to an opinion and this list is mine.
Really? No, because I read this piece somewhere:
“Magazines and other printed matter serve as a record of our culture. This is what we leave to future generations. A window into our values, aesthetics or standards of beauty.
In addition, all of the images we're inundated with have an effect on our psyche. It begins at a young age, and continues throughout our lives: What we're told is beautiful is what we believe is beautiful.
And if, for decades, fair-skinned women with Anglo-Saxon features are deemed "Most Beautiful" by a national publication, don't we collectively, to some extent, absorb this information as truth? “
I wonder if that is true, and if so, if it can somehow be changed….
(There is indication that votes on this list have been compromised. Months ago there was an UPSURGE of upvotes and downvotes which is uncharacteristic of the voting patterns seen in this list.)
