no wonder our perception of beauty is distorted...

....with a little help from make-up artists/hair professionals/computer programs/lighting/cameras/technology etc we can all look like this ;)

I just watched that - no wonder people have such bizarre understandings of beauty.

I was reading 1Peter3 this morning which says:

3Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.

That talks of unfading beauty - I had forgotten that - and that this gentle and quiet spirit is of great worth in God's sight. How cool is that!

(now could someone explain to me what a quiet and gentle spirit is, and where I can get that from?!)

Hmmm if you find that quiet and gentle spirit do let me know, I have been looking for it too :)

What do you think it means?

Those videos are insane. It's shocking how many young girls are so unhappy with their appearance. When I was in high school, I had really low self-esteem about my appearance, mostly because some guys from my church used to tease me about it. Very sad. I wish more people could realise how fake the whole beauty industry is, and how much more important inner beauty is.

As an aside, The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf is an interesting, but rather disturbing, read.

...and no wonder girls struggle with this when they see billboards and magazines filled with pictures of fake 'computerised to perfection women' on/in them. Grrrr.

Thanks for the book recommendation :)

Wow. That is quite shocking really. I just took a screen capture of her at the beginning and compared it with a screen capture on the billboard and there is no way you would think it was the same woman. We all hear about airbrushing and camera lighting etc. But to see just how dramatic the change is... wow.

I think I'll save that- I can see it coming into handy at a woman's talk on self-esteem/beauty/image etc should the opportunity arise.

Wow - that is a bit scary!

I think a gentle and quiet spirit is one that calmly trusts God. The bit just after that 1 Peter 3 verse says "do not fear anything that is frightening", and I think the two ideas sort of go together.

Hey Dani, save it! I am sure it will come in useful :)

This is an article from Girl Talk about this video - check it out here

That is a good video, especialy the post-production work. But I will shock you and say the Photoshop stuff need not be done if the girl had lost a few pounds and sat up strait. I don't like to see girls ribs stick out like the catwalk girls, but a good looking girl is fit, you can't get away from that sorry. The same goes for guys. Get fit, feel your best, live longer, look you best. Or don't. But makeup will not do it.
