Everyone has a different idea of what perfection is but IMO this is pretty damn close to it. I like how her matches the wheat in the background. Now that's my idea of "whole grain"!

We all see each other differently, so that proves that it's "All in the eye of the beholder".

That chick in the OP would be lucky if she rates a 5 by Los Angeles standards of facial beauty.

She's not ugly, but she just looks below average to me. I wouldnt even notice her if she walked by me.

True, however, there is a universal standard of beauty recognized by the majority.

I'm sure she feels the same way.

For example take these two woman.

Heather Matarazzo



Jessica Alba



80+ percent of men will pick Alba.

Why? Because beauty / attraction is a physical art. Can be measured. And is Universal on a general level.
Yes, that part I understand. But let's get to the more complicated part; how many men would pick this woman over that one?

And how many women would prefer this one over, say, that one?

When you have women of relative equal beauty then it comes down to preference.

This in no way diminishes the universal beauty concept.

No-no, it doesn't, I agree.
But how do you think it became "Universal"?
Do you think it's all "advertisement" or something is built in us within, that dictates us what beauty is, independently from mass media?
