21st Century woman

Today when you look at your average women's fashion/beauty magazine you usually see the 21st century's idea of the "Ideal" woman. Now this perception is what tends to dominate worldwide through mediums such as the media and this is what the general public tend to base their opinion on. Now more commonly these looks are achieved through photo air brushing and/or cosmetic surgery which means that if these looks are obtained artificially then should we really use them when it comes to thinking of what is beautiful and what isn't?


The Dictionary definition for the word beauty is as follows:


"beau·ty 
n. pl. beau·ties
1. The quality that gives pleasure to the mind or senses and is associated with such properties as harmony of form or color, excellence of artistry, truthfulness, and originality.

2. One that is beautiful, especially a beautiful woman.

3. A quality or feature that is most effective, gratifying, or telling: The beauty of the venture is that we stand to lose nothing.
4. An outstanding or conspicuous example:"

So as it seems, Beauty is defined solely either by apprearance or by the opinions of others. So does it really matter whether it's natural or not? well of course as the first definition includes the words "truthfulness, and originality" which would indicate natural beauty.I may sound harsh but sometimes natural beauty isn't all that great to look at but I guess the term "Ugly truth" may have stemmed from there...

I wish we were still surrounded by the natural beauty of the likes of Sophia Loren, Rita Hayworth, Joshephine Baker and Ava Gardner. It doesn't do much to boost your confidence when your constantly surrounded by a uniform image of perfection. 




To sum it all up. women are constantly under pressure to perfect them selves to tailor to the images that are flaunted everywhere. And these images won't always necessarily depict your average woman. Doesn't sound fair does it?
