Did You Happen to See the Most Beautiful Girl in the World?

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.

    she’s very pretty! But I think every race has beautiful woman and some blondie will never change that! I don’t care what Da Vinci said ,I disagree!

    My vote also goes to Aishwarya. Like father, like son I guess.

  4. As a blonde, blue-eyed nerd, I have ALWAYS been suspicious of the idea that that combination is beautiful. Maybe that’s just a product of low-self-esteem, but what. I always wished I had either rich dark brown/black hair (like my dad) or red hair (like my mom), and somehow I ended up with blonde, which has always seemed BORING to me. I think it’s funny, when I look at stories I’ve written, the girl characters who ACTUALLY GET THE GUY, or even are just called beautiful by other characters, all have dark brown hair. And all the blonde girl characters I’ve made have also been described as awkward or otherwise unpleasant-looking. There’s probably something psychological going on here, but oh well.

    But I think I do find the top woman prettier than the bottom woman, but I think that’s because I’m turned off by the latter’s heavy eye shadow. But then, I’m not attracted to women, either, so maybe that’s a different variable.

      I suppose that, to a certain extent, pretty much everybody wants what they can’t have. I also kind of wonder if red hair has replaced blonde in being what is preferred, at least in American society.
