I liked the point it was trying to make.  The fashion industry has distored our image.  It is also interesting that the most famous image of beauty is Marilyn Monroe who was much heavier that say…. Kate Moss (who is not pretty at all).  But if you see some of the early pics of Monroe, you can tell she had plastic surgery.  Dig up the old playboy pics and others and notice her nose.  that’s the biggest difference.  I like the fact that Dove is trying to be more accepting of the variety we all come in.

How to make a beauty*:
1.  Ingest alcohol.
2.  Examine appearance of subject.  If not yet up to your standards, repeat step 1.

*It is strongly recommended that, before proceding with this process, you first verify that the subject is within your parameters for hygiene, gender, species, etc.

Really, though, I find it rather depressing how it seems like so many girls are all trying to force themselves into one narrow idea of “beauty”.  Even if it is good looking, it gets dull when every other girl looks about the same.

I think it takes guys setting the ideals verbally that will save girls/women from that tiny, inflexible window.

I think it takes girls doing the same for the guys. There are more males now falling into dangerous traps being set by unrealistic stages as well. SO, let me say this firmly and with grand truth….guys are beautiful in ALL their many sizes and it’s the variety that makes them delectable

Yeah. Guys are worrying more I think.

Thing is, my generation of people are too late to be affected too much by this, I think we (myself included) are too worried about looks, weight, hair and makeup to be weaned off. For instance, I went out on Saturday shopping and for the actual first time in 2 years went without makeup just to see if I did depend on it too much (It was an out of town shopping place). I saw my closest friend when i was out (was with the parents) and ddint dare go say hello because I was too paranoid about how bad I looked, and it’s the same story with most people I know (I’m pretty sure). This campaign is good because I think it’s concentrating more on the younger generation, but it needs to be focused on guys aswell as girls or else in a few years the roles will simply be reversed: men worring about looks and women less so. This isnt right either. But personally I dont think there’s much point even trying to change opinions of teens aged 14/15 up, I dont think they’ll stop being vain, or change who theyre role models are.


Oh, and I do think the girl is prettier after the photoshop, mean as i feel to say it.
