Could you be "beautiful"???

Who Me?Who Me? Posts: 3,181Registered Users
A few things have had me wondering this lately. Do you think that if you had lots of money and didn't have to work, and had a personal trainer and lots of stylists, etc., that you could be one of the "beautiful" people??? (I put "beautiful" in quotes because yes, everyone is beautiful in their own way, but I mean media/pop culture beautiful). How about other people you know?

Basically, I guess the question is, how much natural beauty do all these beautful starts have, and how much is just diet, exersize, and stylists. Have you ever seen stars' year book pictures? Some of them, who are now very beautiful, were just plain ugly!

    Lol. Yeah, I'm pretty cute as it is. ;)

    Anyway, celebrity/fame is enough to boost just about anyone from "okay looking" status to "mind blowingly hot", even without stylists, trainers and cosmetic surgery. As for year book photos, all I have to say is that adolescence is a bad time for most people.

    Hmmmmmm, I guess I'm wondering more:

    How many of the "beautiful people" are actually beautiful, and how many of them are just regular ol' people with good stylists and trainers.

    probably some, some (maybe 2%) are probably very natually beautiful.

    and how much is just diet, exersize

    lots.

    and stylists.

    LOTS. I doubt any can dress themselves and even if they do have stylists lots look like dogs dinners.

    There was a site someone posted here once that had candid shots of celebrities without any makeup. There were some fugly people.

    Generally, grooming and presentation make all the difference.

    I was watching some special on E! and they said some celebs pay over $4,000 just to get their hair done everyday by stylists. That includes their dyejobs, extensions, etc. If they spend that much on just hair imagine what they spend on the rest of their body.

    I also saw that this one hair product maker (some guy, I don't remember his name) makes a certain product ONLY for Justin Timberlake. No one else can have it! They said JT spends over $20,000 per tour on just his hair...he doesn't even have much to work with either. :roll:

    With unlimited resources, I think the majority of people could be made attractive. Course I look fine now!

    But all the money and work in the world won't turn me into Halle (ok, plastic surgery might) but that's okay.

    I look good with no make-up AND my natural hair!!!! How many of the hollywood types, especially the ones who smoke, can say that?

    Of course I could. Check out ugly Tori Spelling. She is ghastly, but Hollywood obviously thinks she is hot.*edited to add, even without all the above, I could be a beauty any day. Hell, I AM a beauty.

    No they don't, they think she is the daughter of what was a very powerful and rich hollywood executive. What is she famous for? Being in her dad's tv show.

    What has she done lately?

    some indie films with miniscule rolls.....

    Sure, money can get a person to look like hollywood's standard of beauty, but
    a) so what
    b) is that really something to strive for?

    inner peace and well being doesnt have a price. Well, it does cost money to eat and stuff, but you know what I mean.

    Lol, same here. I think I look pretty good and could definitely be better looking than most of those celebrities if I had all that money. Only a few of them, men and women, are striking to me and I think I've seen more beautiful people personally(friends, friends of friends) that look better anyways.

    ...except for the fact that some people may need a little more time than others...he he he (crying on the inside...but hey, that's life). :lol:

    Yeah. Celebs aren't necessarily better-looking than regular folks. They're just people.

    In a kind of reverse direction, has anyone seen still photos from Charlize Theron's new movie (she plays a serial killer)? I can't remember the title. They have totally "plained" her out. I did not recognize her at all, and she is certainly not attractive in the photos by any stretch of the imagination. And I think she is one of the most beautiful women around.

    I know quite a few people that are quite beautiful. And I figure that if they look that good in person, WITHOUT the stylists, etc, then, yeah they can compete with the Hollywood beauties.

    I was beautiful once. When I was 25, thin and bothered to wear make-up. I copied a look from the first Kevyn Aucoin book, once. Thanks to dorm life I've become used to doing make-up in a small mirror one feature at a time. When I looked at the final result, I was shocked. I didn't look like me. I looked like one of them. :D It was cool but all that goop (sp) on my face felt uncomfortable. Sometimes one fo the tabloids (love them!) will run a pic of a celeb on the red carpet in natural light. You can see all the layers of make up. They don't look all that.

    I'll see if I'm still beautiful once I lose the weight.

    I voted "yes"- though I think I look better without makeup.

    Anyway, I've seen a lot of non-Hollywood people (who don't wear make-up) that look WAY better than those Hollywood folks.

    It would take a small army to make me beautiful like those people. Then again, it would probably take a small army to make me beautiful period.

    It takes a big army to make them beautiful. I'm sure you are beautiful in your own way, we all are.

    I don't know. A beauty? Probably not. There is a lot of geometry in beauty. The eyes must be a certain distance appart, and the mouth a certain width. I remember Paulina Porizkova, the 80s supermodel said about her beauty "it's all mathematics".

    Sometimes I look at an elderly woman and I can tell she was a real beauty in her day. Although there are lots of wrinkles and spots, the geometry and the symmetry are still there.

    Even though models and actesses without makeup look ordinary, if you look closely you can still see they have good bone structure.
  • j'adorej'adore Posts: 1,966Registered Users
    The Geometry thing is true if we are talking about the traditional standard of beauty. If that was the case, I would not be cute at all! However, I have come to the conclusion that all you need is one (or more) stand out feature to be beautiful.

    I have very prominent features...big forehead, high cheekbones, strong nose (which I used to hate--now I have no problem with it). I have been told I look like Prince. LOL. Mathematically, it shouldn't work at all. But its an eye-catching package when you pair it with a bronze complexion and green eyes.

    Take Sarah Jessica Parker (another supposed twin). Catch her from the wrong angle, and its like "...IS she cute?" But she has great eyes and great hair and great skin. She's striking! She and plenty of other celebs don't fit the mold but are gorgeous anyway. To me, it's the same way in real life.

    :D

    I voted no. Some people have it. Some dont. All the money,stylists, personal trainers etc couldnt help this.

    I could get to "pretty" but never to beautiful.
