As I recently found out on Tumblr, scientists have found the most beautiful woman in the world, and she just happens to be blonde-haired and blue-eyed. Nice to know Hitler’s scientists are still getting work. Seriously, though, my wife has blonde hair and blue eyes, so I’m certainly not saying I don’t find that look attractive. I’m just saying it’s one of MANY beautiful looks. Variety is the spice of life, and all that. And the whole thing strikes me as very Eurocentric. Blonde hair and blue eyes are going to be some people’s ideal (not just Hitler’s), but do you really think that’s the case in, say, Namibia? The symmetry idea is interesting, because I’ve always heard that pretty much everybody finds symmetrical features more attractive. Maybe they do, but aren’t there girls of other races with symmetrical faces?
As for this particular woman, I do think she’s pretty, but those pictures of her don’t show much character. And while I realize everyone wants a clear complexion, hers almost goes too far, to the point of looking airbrushed. I assume she isn’t, because that would go against the whole natural beauty thing, but who knows? My goal is not at all to insult Ms. Colgate, however. (Colgate? Could THAT be the real reason she got a modeling job for a drugstore?) As I said, she is pretty, and I’m glad the modeling career will help her pay her bills. It’s just to point out that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as I’m sure we all know. Veronica pointed out on Facebook that Aishwarya Rai had already been designated as the world’s most beautiful woman. I personally find her considerably more attractive than Colgate, but again, eye of the beholder.
