First off all respect to her and what she did in her life and may she RIP.


Now to the point of this thread. I just came across a clip involving her on youtube.
In the past I never found her physically attractive at all.

Its clear to me why this is. 1) short hair and the hair styles in general, would have looked far better with long hair. 2) Conservative clothing
3) Unfeminine clothing and physical aspects

I think if these things had been different she actually would have been attractive. She had the core ability to be so.

What are your thoughts?

What I think is that everyone has their own idea about what makes someone attractive and their own preferences.

I think we do NOT need to post a thread about people who we don't keep attractive. Do you want to see a thread of yourself with your picture and explanation why people not keep you attractive?

If you want to, please, post your picture and I will tell what is wrong with your nose, eyes, hair, body, cheeks, chin, forehead and clothing, how you would need to change before I would be attracted to you

Its a thread about beauty. Which is a forum topic here. Which I handled in a positive and respectful way. If you don't like it I suggest you stay out of the thread.

You start a thread telling us you don't find a dead woman attractive.

Yeah, that makes sense

I thought she was smokin hot about the time she got married, but later on, not so much. They broadcast her marriage live on TV back in the day.

Beauty is not always about someone's physical attributes or the clothing they wear and it shouldn't be.

Diana Spencer was a beautiful, beautiful woman.

First of all -- *I* had that haircut before there was a Princess Diana. That's a classic short haircut. And it suits her. You have to understand, not everyone has great hair long. She did grow her hair out and it looked a little stringy. Fine thin hair does that -- that haircut gives hair a lot of texture and the lightness of it give it fullness.

Second of all -- she's royalty. They ARE conservative. VERY conservative. Diana once attended a function in a strapless gown and people were SHOCKED -- SHOCKED I TELL YOU -- at the cleavage she showed while getting out of the car. Trust me in a strapless dress, if you bend over you're going to see cleavage.

Third -- the 80's and 90's weren't the best years for fashion. The shoulder pads rivaled football padding. Pants were highwaisted and very trouser like, and the dresses look like sacks with optional belts.

BUT, that was the fashion. I was just watching a show I loved from the 80's and it was unbearable with the bad fashion and the makeup so made up. But you have to get past it, because that's what they did then. And if you didn't do that you were criticized for not doing it.

Fourth -- she was attractive. You can't take today's definition of attractive and apply to someone who isn't of today. IF she were still living today, you could say -- oh look, she's so very pretty still, for an old broad.

It's like criticizing Jean Harlow for looking like she looked in the 20's, with the white platinum blonde hair in the marcel waves and the exaggerated red lip, where they often went 1/4 inch outside of the lipline to apply the matte lipstick, and you're screaming she doesn't look natural. Of COURSE she doesn't look natural. That wasn't the style!
